Charityvest creates an efficient digital platform for all charitable giving that drastically improves the giving experience for donors and lowers the cost of fundraising for nonprofits. The platform is based upon providing free, digital and tax-deductible donor-advised funds ("Charity Funds") that enable instant online giving with no fee to any organization in the US. Charityvest erodes the $14B+ in charitable transaction costs by generating revenue using a capital management business model. This is done by investing a portion of the aggregate capital through its system.
