Donations platform Givsee makes giving easier and faster than ever before.
Fast, simple, secure. That’s the Givsee promise to nonprofits, charities, and churches looking to increase community support and engagement.
The results are in: groups that choose Givsee have seen a significant increase in donations. Most charities using our full donation solution typically see an 18-22% increase in donations. In our current beta phase, we have processed more than $400,000 in donations for 25 nonprofits.
Now ready for nationwide adoption, Givsee is the best way to increase generosity and connect with donors for a simple user experience. We have worked with a number of churches and nonprofits to help increase giving, and we can do the same for you!
Givsee’s founder, a giving and generous person his whole life, came up with the idea for Givsee out of a desire to make spur-of-the-moment donations. He found there was no way to do that, so he decided to create such a platform himself.
Everyone banks online these days; no one is carrying around cash or checks. If we expect fundraising to succeed, it needs to match people’s lifestyle and expectations. Givsee strips away the clutter and refines giving into a simple and intuitive process that saves time and empowers the mobile generation for generosity.
Becoming the fastest and simplest donations platform requires game-changing features that engage today’s donor.

Beautifully designed. Built specifically for charities, we took a thoughtful, elegant approach to our design and user interface. We removed all the clutter and handcrafted an intuitive donation platform that is refreshing and engaging for donors.
Click, click, done. Most donation platforms are bloated with an overwhelming number of buttons and steps. Givsee is different on purpose. Whether on the app or online, Givsee has the least clicks and barriers to ensure generosity can take place more often. Honing the process for the fewest steps to giving, donations happen in under 10 seconds.

Givsee was created to change the face of giving. We can do exactly that for you.
Givsee is fully developed, with iOS and Android apps and web platform ready to roll. Some of our app technology is patent pending. We entered beta testing in 2015 and helped 25 nonprofits raise over $400,000 from 400 users.
The company that securely processes these donations is one of the pioneers in the payment processing industry.
We have just successfully completed this beta and are now ready to launch nationwide. There are a number of large companies that have approached us to partner with them in rolling out our service to their existing customers. We are in talks now and hope to close partnership deals soon. These range from billion dollar public companies with nonprofit arms to large PE-backed organizations.
Givsee has also been approached by a number of large companies in the e-giving space for churches. Over the next 12-24 months, additional distribution deals will enable us to fast track growth to thousands of additional church customers.
Up next: Continue to add core features that strike the balance between keeping nonprofits and churches happy and engaging donors in innovative ways. Features in the works are:
We also plan on maximizing engagement and donations through education and training programs like church webinars, conferences, and promotional materials.
Chris Marcus, CEO
Chris is a successful entrepreneur who has founded and built multiple successful organizations. Prior to founding Givsee, Chris founded Colormatics in 2001 (formerly Marcus Inc.), a production company that specializes in feature films, commercials, and branded content. Chris and his team have created content for 20th Century Fox, Cabela’s, NBC Universal, Sony, Google, YouTube, American Express, and many other global brands. Chris helped create two feature-length films that were sold to 20th Century Fox.
Chris also co-founded Brecus Motorsport, a high performance online automotive retailer, in 2008. Specializing in the distribution of race parts for high-end European Performance Vehicles, Brecus quickly became a disrupter in the BMW M performance community and was later acquired by a private high performance race brand.
In 2005, as co-creator of Liquid, Chris oversaw brand development and content creation. With a successful sale to Thomas Nelson Publishing, the Liquid curriculum sold over a quarter million units in retail and the content has been viewed by millions of people all around the world.
Chris has worked with and served a variety of charities and ministries such as Saddleback Church, Mariners Church, Thomas Nelson Publishing, World Vision, Trinity Grace Church, and Renaissance Church.
Despite his heart’s constant desire to give back, being forgetful, Chris’ actions didn’t always follow suit. Thinking there must be a way to enable donations in the moment, he brought in his lifelong friend and business partner, Aaron Breeden, to create such a platform.
Aaron Breeden, COO
Aaron has more than 15 years of experience in business, including startups, team management, resource allocation, budgeting, strategic planning for growth, and product/brand development.
Prior to launching Givsee, he founded the Service Station, creating a unique music/coffee venue with a social conscience. It attracted over 40,000 customers per month and drew popular artists such as Macklemore, Jars of Clay, and David Crowder Band, becoming a premium venue in the Pacific Northwest. Talks of a national chain soon developed, and in 2015 the company was sold for a mid-range 7 figure deal.
In 2008, Aaron co-founded Brecus Motorsport with Chris. In 2006, Aaron created Scizors, a post-production sound house. Scizors has managed multi-million dollar budget feature films with Sony, Fox, Paramount Pictures, Syfy, PBS, Cabela’s, Marvel, Starz Entertainment, NxNW Entertainment, and Nu Image Films.
Aaron has served on a number of nonprofit boards and is currently the chair for Life Services in Spokane, WA.
