What is

Making the World 10% Happier

Why Chive Charities?

Chive Charities has changed the giving paradigm. As opposed to using the cause to raise awareness on behalf of the recipient, we encourage the recipient to let their story raise awareness for their cause. Donors are connected to the entire story from beginning to end - we watch our recipients go out into the world to do incredible things, and we are right beside them.

For us, it's not just about giving. It's about connecting.

Each month we find unique causes to support: people in need of financial assistance; veterans in need of support. Then, we research how we can best fit their needs - not just in the short-term, but in the long run, too. The grant is drawn from our Chive Fund, the pool of donations that only exists because of you, our donors.

Because raising awareness for our recipient and the cause is Priority #1, we tell their story. We share it with millions of readers across the world. Those stories are read, shared, and often take on a life of their own. 

Chive Charities is not just a charity. We're not just a website. We're a home to people who value kindness, respect, and generosity above all. We're a group of misfits who share one goal, and it's a simple one: To make the world a better place. Not a perfect place. A 10% happier place.

Chive Charities is committed to creating a diverse environment and recipient portfolio and is proud to be an equal opportunity organization.

The Green Ribbon Fund

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Chive Charities inspires a new generation to support causes that would otherwise be forgotten. Proving themselves as the most generous community on the web today, Chive Nation has earned media recognition time and time again for their overwhelming desire and ability to improve lives.

From purchasing a safe room for a little girl with SMS, to helping a soldier who lost all his limbs serving in Afghanistan build his dream cabin, our donors have truly kept to their promise of making the world 10 percent happier.

In order to keep this movement funded, we compile both monthly and one-time contributions from our Chive Charities members. These dollars are used to meet our chosen grant recipients' needs. We consider our Chive Charities members our lifeline to helping others. If you would like to contribute, please select one of our four available plans below. Welcome to the Chive Charities family!
