Staunton Nonprofit Works to Maximize Charitable Donations

Posted: Updated:

If you like supporting charities, a Staunton nonprofit is giving you a chance to stretch your donation even further.

Giv2Giv takes charitable contributions and creates an endowment. Founder Michael Blinn says it's as simple as getting on the Internet, picking your registered charity, and giving as little as $2 or as much as $2 million.

Blinn says charitable giving is fundamentally broken and Giv2Giv provides a better option.

"Charities will receive a lot more than what your initial donation is,” he said. “Because of compounding interest and increases in investment, your monies will grow. And then over time they'll continue to give out the charities you love even after you stop giving.”

Blinn says it took a $1,500 marketing grant and community support to create Giv2Giv, which launches this weekend.
