INDIANAPOLIS - Givelify, which connects donors with charities, churches and religious organizations through its mobile application, announced plans today to expand its operations in downtown Indianapolis, creating up to 40 new high-wage jobs by 2020.
"If you're looking for the nation's most innovative companies, you don't need to look to the coasts. You'll find them in Indiana," Governor Eric Holcomb said. "With our plan to make available $1 billion for Hoosier innovation over the next 10 years, I'm confident we will see many more success stories like Givelify across Indiana."
Launched in December 2013, Givelify is now the world’s most downloaded mobile application for giving. Dedicated to helping nonprofit organizations regardless of budget or the socioeconomic status of the communities they serve, Givelify has helped these organizations raise more than $100 million. The company has averaged 500 percent annual growth rate in revenue, serving clients across the country and processing donations from countries across six continents.
The homegrown Hoosier company will triple the size of its office in the Majestic Building in downtown Indianapolis, growing its total footprint in the building to 3,000 square feet. To support the company’s nearly 8,000 clients located across the country, the company will grow its application sales, marketing, client support and development operations, with plans to have its team functional in the expanded space starting next month.
“Even as a bootstrapped company, we’ve been able to challenge highly bank-rolled competitors thanks to the business-friendly environment that the state of Indiana provides, as well as a thriving tech community that’s very supportive of startups,” said Walle Mafolasire, founder and chief executive officer of Givelify.
