The Giving Fund (“TGF”) was established in 2014 by Lindsay and Alex Davis. The Davis Family wanted to be able to affect individuals and see the results of their contributions in real-time. For many organizations in the United States, administrative costs, salaries, and other expenses can account for over 90% of the actual donation, making the amount of the donation nearly insignificant. The Davises feel TGF will help raise awareness for more local, centralized problems and encourage others to contribute how they can to help change the lives of those in their communities.
The mission of TGF is simply to change lives. While money is not the only way to create change, TGF hopes that our donation can be create life-changing experiences for those we help. If our donation can be used to help somebody have a necessary surgery that they would not otherwise have been able to afford, then TGF has accomplished its goal for the week.
At the end of the year, www.thegivingfund.org will have posted the weekly stories that inspired us to make 52 contributions of $10,000 each. The “Success Stories” page will feature the videos we choose and we hope this spreads awareness for causes that touched us the most.
Finally, TGF is a unique way of helping. Its sole purpose is to change lives by providing help to those in need. We thank you all ahead of time for your curiosity and appreciation for what we are doing. TGF will make incredibly difficult decisions when reviewing applications as there are so many problems in the world that could use a financial boost and only one cause is chosen each week. We are incredibly grateful to be able to help in this fashion and would love nothing more than to change the way others think about giving, since we certainly have.
