Who We Are
We’re dreamers and doers.
We’re ever-evolving, and always grateful.
We Exist to Create Impact on Every Purchase.
We began in 2015 as an organization to do good and make an impact. As time progressed, we saw a demand from consumers for the same. We build products to address the expectation for change. We are proud of the giving economy we’ve built that brings our Dedicated Impact Partners the ability to give back to organizations of all sizes; shoppers the ability to stretch their dollar for good; and organizations the funding to progress their missions.
Through everyday purchases we create positive social impact by connecting retailers, customers and nonprofits with our seamless donation process. We support microdonations that leads to powerful change. Here’s how:
Search and select a cause or charity of choice for the retailer to donate to – at no extra cost.
Create engaging moments with customers and nonprofits by giving the customer the opportunity to support what they are passionate about.
Receive donations seamlessly and securely while engaging with customers and retailers so you can focus on their missions.
Our values guide us everyday; our guiding light that keeps us on our path to impact.

We Refill the Coffee
If the coffee pot is empty – we fill it. We are team players who take time to listen, we empathize, and if a team member or partner needs help – we prioritize it.
Our Founder and CEO, Ronny Sage, kept finding a common goal throughout his years of working at a digital marketing agency and brands, how do we connect with the right customers in a more meaningful way and within budget? With the US market spending over $200b in advertising and $25B in digital advertising, he thought there has to be a better way for brands to spend this money, while still acquiring the right customer.
He believed there was an opportunity to shift marketing dollars to the impact space and by doing so, brands could connect with customers to build authentic relationships, while still driving business goals – and create a make positive impact. As the team of co-founders started digging into the issue, we realized how cost-prohibitive cause marketing was for retailers, and how little the customer had to do with the role in who retailers supported. They saw that the big retailers gave to the top nonprofits and that most the time, the customer was the one who ended up paying more for the donation – enter ShoppingGives.
ShoppingGives began in 2015 as an organization to do good and make an impact at any scale. As time progressed, we saw a demand from consumers for the same and have evolved with our community.

When we aren’t busy hustling for a better world, we’re balancing our work life with what makes us unique. We have individuals who rock climb, create music, model, have served in the Korean Army and have even been arrested for changing their friend’s grades when in middle school. We always celebrate our differences while building our bonds, and giving back- together.
