On January 18, 2018, GiveGab finalized our acquisition of Kimbia, the everyday fundraising and Giving Day platform responsible for helping nonprofits raise $1 billion since its inception. 

Official press release is available here.

This acquisition is a highly collaborative effort to transition the Kimbia team to continue their work under GiveGab’s management, while still maintaining the products and services their customers are relying on for everyday fundraising and Giving Days for as long as reasonably possible.  

We’re thrilled to add Kimbia’s legacy and experience to GiveGab’s modern, secure, and user-friendly platform, and to continue to build on our absolute obsession with customer service.  To adequately welcome new customers and continue providing our users with the same great support, we’ve added more all-star players to our customer success and engineering teams.  

Everything you love about GiveGab will remain the same, so you shouldn’t notice anything different moving forward while using GiveGab.  

This will have an overall positive impact on the experience of our platform users because we’ll be applying what we learn from Kimbia to make the GiveGab experience even better than before!  The fact that so many additional nonprofits and giving day partners will be using GiveGab should serve as added confirmation that you’ve chosen the right platform!
