How You Can Use Givahoy
When you see or hear of a cause using Givahoy, you run the app and give. It’s fast and easy, as if you were handing over cash. No data risk, no fraud, and no charge.
Pledge in the app, fund from your bank account (we send your unique ref in an email).
If you are street collecting, let us know. If you are busking, running an event. Anything that isn’t just an email campaign, we’ll make it easy to collect funds.
The recipient will get aggregated payments, with reports available on donation distribution, for example.

Causes get more money and analytics, donors get a good record of giving and tax benefits.
