What a partnership requires
Givero is tech for good, and all organizations are welcome to apply for a partnership
No obligations for your organization
As a Givero partner, you are not obliged to contribute in any way. However, we would like you to actively join us so that we can provide more support to your organization. We offer a number of partnership options where we aim to make it easy for both members and non-members to support your organization through Givero’s search engine.
A partnership gives you the opportunity for customized tools for your organization, e.g. your own landing page on Givero, a branded default home page, a search field to use on your own websites, and several other options. Depending on the customizations and options you choose, it may require a small initial effort.
If you don’t want to a branded partnership, we won’t use your organization’s logo or imagery from your portfolio, and the organization is not obliged to promote Givero and your effort will be close to zero.
You are the experts in your field – you know best how to make your organization’s efforts count. We believe we can contribute, helping you take advantage of a new kind of business model: We are experts in search engines and online services, and we see active partnerships as a unique opportunity to help more people make a difference.
Benefits for partners
At Givero, we believe that active cooperation achieves better results. Therefore, Givero prefers active partnerships which let your organization receive increased donations through special initiatives. For example, we can provide you with the following:
- Custom landing page at www.givero.com/support/organization_name.
- Embedded news feed via RSS on your landing page.
- Custom link to encourage direct donations.
- Unique URL you can use in your organization’s online channels.
- A branded browser extension developed and maintained by Givero.
- Search widget returning results only from your organization’s website.
- Help to switch your organization’s computers to use Givero.
Custom search landing page
An branded search engine page with relevant results, donating to your organization
If you would like your own landing page on Givero, talk to us about your options. We can use your logo, an introduction, and optionally a background image from your media library, to create a custom landing page for your organization with a unique URL for free. Your organization will reach more people with our “free search and support” partnerships.
Increase support for your organization
Organizations often struggle to find and maintain paying members: Not everyone can afford to regularly contribute or commit to a membership. Givero gives you the opportunity to let everyone support your organization, regardless of their membership status.
So now everyone supports your organization, not just members. You can use your custom link on your website and ensure your supporters can contribute by searching with Givero. Everyone who searches with your link collects points that give you a larger share of Givero’s total income.
We share the profits
- We’ve made it simple – we are a registred Social Enteprise under Danish law and have legal obligatoins to share our profits for the common good.
- We regularily publish a financial report which shows both our revenue and donations.
When a user who has chosen your organization performs a search, an amount is earmarked for your organization. Givero’s certified Microsoft partner reviews the traffic quality and revenue is calculated monthly based on their results.
We have partnered with a certified Microsoft search partner who delivers Microsoft’s search results and advertisements to Givero. Advertisers pay Microsoft to get their ads displayed on Givero, and we receive the bulk of this revenue.
We have chosen to work separately with the searches made (the point system) and the revenue collected to help prevent fraudulent search and click behavior. While Givero counts the searches made with points, the actual earnings from the advertisements are managed by Microsoft and our search partner.
When someone searches and clicks on an advertisement, Microsoft records which organization was supported by that particular search/click. The monthly reports provided by our search partner show exactly how much of our total revenue was generated by each individual organizations.
Givero is currently in its start-up phase, but we have many ongoing initiatives to increase awareness and to grow Givero’s user base. Although initial donations are expected to be small amounts, we want to be transparent and report on our traffic figures and donations by publishing reports. In the launch month, February 2019 we had 100.000 active users, and during 2019, we expect to exceed 50,000 daily searches.
Givero supporters for one organization: 5,000
Total number of average searches per day, per supporter: 3
A rough amount for the donation is expected to be between 2 and 3 DKK per month.
The more people who search and support your organization, the more your organization will receive.

A partnership that matters
“We are putting a lot of effort into building a new type of service, and in creating a community everyone wants to be a part of. We are at the forefront of data ethics; we do not collect data and do not sell data. We never profile our users. Another consideration was our data center, and offcourse our servers are running on green power.” Brian Schildt Laursen, Givero
Facts about donations
During 2019 we are expanding our list of organizations as more supporters start using Givero.
Until we have a large supporter-base, we believe it is more meaningful to support fewer organizations with larger donations.
- 50% of our revenue will be donated in 2019 and 2020
- Monthly transparency reports are published.
- Revised account statements are published according to Danish law – see Financials.
- We pay donations within 30 days after receiving payment from our search partner – See the Payments section in our terms.
- The minimum payout threshold is 1.000 USD . Smaller amounts will accumulate until the threshold has been reached. However, all amounts below the threshold will be paid out at the end of the financial year.
To be listed, your organization must be internally approved, and we expect to list at least 20 organizations in 2019.
Our internal approval requirements are regularly reviewed.
