Grateful is a platform where businesses and individuals can send a virtual giving card, also known as a Grateful Card™, to others to say thank you.
Recipients can pick from all U.S. 501(c)(3) charities to donate the dollars to, or our app will automatically match them with nonprofits if they do not have specific groups already in mind.
Nonprofits can use the Grateful mobile or web app for free to post causes in need of support and share the impact.
Grateful Card™ recipients can donate the proceeds to any 501(c)(3), or our app will automatically match them with nonprofits if they do not have specific groups already in mind.
The curated app features nonprofits and causes that align with the likes and preferences of Grateful givers.
Nonprofits can associate their causes with values that easily connect with Grateful givers with similar preferences.
There is no cost for nonprofit organizations to have profiles in Grateful. Businesses and individuals who send Grateful Cards pay a fee to support the platform.
We created your profile based on your publicly available IRS information, plus in some cases information from your public website and/or public social media pages.
All funds are processed via the Grateful Fund, a charitable giving fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines. The Community Foundation then sends you a check. Currently donations from the Grateful Fund are sent via mail but planning is underway to provide electronic payments in the future.

Donors and giving card recipients can choose to keep their information private, but if they do not do so, then yes you can see a list of all your donors in your account in the Grateful App. You can also export the list to add it to your donor database or CRM system. Part of the purpose of Grateful is to help build new connections and introduce you to givers who you can build further relationships with.
Grateful is a Benefit corporation, or a B corp, which is a for-profit entity that uses its profits to create positive societal impact. At our core, we believe business and technology should have moral purpose and create positive change in the world. Our platform does more than connect organizations in need with people who can give — it creates community, unites people with a common purpose, and allows individuals to share their values and charitable interests with others.
