Who Uses Give?

With more than 30,000+ active installs of Give, we hear more and more success stories from nonprofit organisations using Give. Causes are using Give to raise millions of dollars per year. Check out some of our Give Stories and Case Studies for details about their success.

Why Use Give for Donations?

If your nonprofit or cause depends on donations, you want to treat your donors right. Don’t send them through a shopping cart or kick them off-site to a third-party platform. Give streamlines the giving process by allowing your donors to complete their donations directly on your website using an easy to complete donation form. As an admin, you have the customisation options and reporting and donor management features you need in order to run successful giving campaigns.

You may have struggled with other WordPress donation plugins in the past; dealing with the lack of features, documentation, and support can be a real pain. There’s a better way. Now you have Give and our entire team on your side.

Simple and Pain-Free Giving

Our development and support team built Give from day one with best practices in WordPress development and online giving in mind. Give works great — the “WordPress way” so you’re already familiar with the interface once you begin using it.

The strength of Give lies within its optimised donation forms. When creating a form you may specify whether the form is a single or multi-level amounts. As well, you can allow donors to give a custom amount if you wish. The donation forms can then be displayed anywhere on your website using a shortcode, widget, or the single donation form page. Simply install and activate the plugin to get started.

First Time Users

For new users, we suggest reviewing our documentation to get an understanding of how the plugin works. If you run into any trouble, we offer free support to help you with your issues, questions, and concerns.

If you are a Give customer with an active licence of any of our popular add-ons, we’d love to hear from you and support you via our Priority Support channel.

Zero Commission Charges

Give’s goal is to “Democratise Generosity.” We want to make it easy for everyone to raise funds online. The money you raise using Give is yours to support your cause. Period. We are supported through the sale of premium Give add-ons. Add-ons enable advanced features that enable you to extend the functionality of Give.

  • WordPress 4.8 or greater
  • PHP version 5.3 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.0.15 or greater
  • Some payment gateways require fsockopen support (for IPN access)
  • cURL version 5.40 or higher

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of Give, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click “Add New”.

In the search field type “Give” and click Search Plugins. Once you have found the plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our donation plugin and uploading it to your server via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

How is Give better than a form plugin for accepting donations through WordPress?

Form plugins are excellent solutions for general intake forms. That said, they most often lack substantial donation reporting features, and donor management options. They also lack a variety of presentation options like Give has for embedding your forms in different places throughout your site. If you want a “Donate Now!” button in the header of your site that opens in a modal, you’ll most often have to do quite a bit of customisation to get that working just right with form plugins — but not with Give.

Give works great alongside all the most popular form plugins. Use Give for donations, and Caldera Forms, Ninja Forms, Gravity Forms or other for your general purpose intake forms. They’ll work great alongside each other.

How is Give better than an eCommerce plugin for accepting donations on WordPress?

We actually built Give specifically to overcome many of the hurdles you have to go through in order to get an eCommerce plugin (like WooCommerce) to be streamlined for donations. You want to treat your donors right. No donor wants to add their donation to a cart and go through several page refreshes just to type their information in. You, as the site admin, don’t want to have to change the word “Products” to “Donations” everywhere, and go through all the hoops of removing taxes and shipping either.

On top of that, customising the plugin’s terminology is a daunting task. You never want your users to receive an “invoice” for the donation “product” they “purchased”. Rather, you’d like for them to receive a receipt for the donation they gave.

Use Give for donations, and let WooCommerce or WP eCommerce or the like handle your products. They work alongside each other just fine. Your donors will be happy, your customers will be happy, and so will you.


Really great tool

Support was fast, efficient and exactly what I needed. Thank you for your dedication in helping us express our concerns for much needed causes.

Simply amazing

I purchased the plus-bundle. There had been a couple of minor tranlsating-issues, however the friendly support-team was there immediatelly and helped me out with every question I had. I wish every plugin had this amazing support and dedication to their customers. I am delighted to see that they don’t stop developing, some workarounds I needed to install will be replaced by a standard solution in the next release. Thank you, Give-Team, you are outstanding!!!

Great plugin, great support

A breath of fresh air amongst premium plugins. High quality, constantly improving, and always receptive to support tickets and customer feedback.

5-Star Support!

A client had a misunderstanding about order the premium version. Michelle straightened it out ASAP. The have great support!

Good Plugin with lots of versatility.

This plugin is good but there are some UX issues. First of all, the WePay plugin stopped working and after many (many, many) hours of trying to figure it out – support says they no longer support it. However their website still showed WePay and made no mention of any issues. Wish I could get all that wasted time/money back.
Also – for recurring donations add-on – we have NO IDEA if a donation is recurring or not in the email notifications. We asked support – they do not seem to care. When a donation comes through – we are forced to login to the website and even then it’s not immediately clear.
So it’s these little User Experience bugs that are getting in the way of this being truly great.

Happy Camper here

GiveWP is an exceptional donation platform. Beautiful to boot. Which is, actually, quite significant in my book. I’m so happy I happened upon GiveWP.

One thing I’d LOVE to see is for GiveWP and WPForms to collaborate.

WordPress + WPForms + GiveWP would be untouchable.

  • Tweak: When you add a new donation level in the donation form creation screen the amount field will be auto-focused. This provides the admin a faster interface for adding levels. #2866
