GiveForward provides personalized fundraising web pages so friends and family can send support to a loved one in need.
GiveForward wants to change the way the world views giving. They believe that too often people are comfortable with giving gifts of money during times of celebration such as a graduation or marriage but during times of real need, like a critical illness, people are afraid to give financial help. GiveForward fundraising pages make providing financial support easier for everyone involved. With a GiveForward page, beneficiaries can feel more comfortable asking for support and donors know that their help is welcome and appreciated. GiveForward pages empower friends and family to send love and financial support to loved ones as they navigate a medical crisis. Create a page today to spread hope and contribute to a loved one's medical expenses.
