The Beginning

Sharitive started as an idea to resolve the nationwide nonprofit funding and resource crisis in 2012 while breaking down barriers to community involvement and charitable giving prevalent in urban areas.

 

“Just found Sharitive - cool app and easy way to give back to local charities all while grabbing coffee.”
