About Education Giving

Education Giving is focused on helping students attend the school of their dreams, obtain a degree and start a career!

Education Giving enables donors to target their charitable donations to specific types of students and/or schools. Through our research, we have found that while donors want to give to schools to help students attend and succeed, donors more importantly want to specify how their donations are used. Education Giving enables the donor to identify how their donations will be allocated…its all about choice, and Education Giving’s unique system enables donor choice.

Education Giving is part of Giving Society, Inc., the pioneer in profile-to-profile e-philanthropy which drives donor-defined giving criteria, choice, flexibility and personalization. Through our innovative processes and secure systems, donors are able to realize industry-leading efficiencies and to drive the highest level of donor IMPACT! The Giving Society is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, and your donations are 100% tax deductable.

The Giving Society was founded on the basis of People Helping People, and Education Giving is based on the following three key principles:

  1. Education is one of the most important assets a person can obtain,
  2. Many people simply cannot afford to attend the school of their dreams and
  3. Donors want to direct the use and gain feedback on how their charitable donations are being used.

The future of our global economies and societies are dependent upon the educational development of our youth. As the cost of education continues to grow beyond the means of many families, students are seeking an affordable solution to attend school, obtain a degree and secure a job upon graduation.

Additionally, global societies not only want our youth to succeed, but also want a transparent and cost-efficient mechanism to donate their hard-earned funds. Education Giving provides these benefits, and through nominal fees to cover the administrative cost to process transactions, our unique system is one of the most efficient systems available to donors.

Our system is unique. Through donor choice, feedback and social media tools that drive industry-leading efficiency, the 3-pronged mission of Education Giving empowers the donor.

You, the donor, determine how you want your education-related, tax-deductible donations to be utilized, and we allocate your donation to specific students that align with your giving criteria. Donations can be directed to a specific school, type of school or type of student…or simply donate to the general fund and we will allocate the funds to students in need.

Through our robust database of schools, Education Giving supports over 35,000 colleges, universities, community colleges, trade schools and private schools in the United States and abroad.

Students create a profile that can include their school’s name, type of school, ethnicity, sports, activities, major, religion and / or geography. Donors choose how their funds should be allocated by determining a school name, school type, school geography and student’s ethnicity, religion, sports, activities and / or major.

On a quarterly basis, Education Giving allocates the funds to students that align with donors’ criteria, and submits the funds to designated schools on behalf of a specific student.

In addition to providing funds to help students attend school, Education Giving also monitors student-recipients’ progress and provides coaching, assistance and tips to help them graduate. As our student-recipients progress through their studies, Education Giving is ready to provide resume preparation, interviewing tips and job search skills to complete their education journey.

For the donor, Education Giving provides status reports to close the loop and provide transparency to how the donated funds are being utilized. Whether the donor chooses their funds to be used for tuition, room and board and other education-related expenses, or job search, resume preparation or interviewing skills, Education Giving is focused on ensuring that each donor knows exactly how their donation is being utilized, and the benefits generated.
