Why GiveNow?

Why should the people doing the hardest and most important work to build stronger communities put up with second-rate and overpriced tools? We believe every Australian community organisation should be able to access the most user-friendly, technologically advanced, secure and lowest-cost donations and payments ecosystem available.

About Us 1Australia's first donations platform

We started in 2000 as The Australian Giving Centre on the Our Community website. Since then, we've built and rebuilt, never ceasing in our aim to provide Australian not-for-profits with access to the most innovative donations technology of the time.

About Us 2We understand community

GiveNow is an initiative of Australia's leading social enterprise, Our Community, a centre for excellence for the nation's 600,000 not-for-profits & schools. We know that all resources are hard won and meeting mission is tough.

About Us 3The only payments facility for Australia's community organisations

We're the only Australian registered payment facilitator dedicated exclusively to not-for-profits. This allows us to deliver the best payment platform at a fraction of the cost you'd pay elsewhere.
