Who is Given?

Simple Concept, Big Mission

The first version of the Given app was launched in March, 2019, by Matt Ostanik. Since then, the team has grown into a passionate group of developers, marketers, and business strategists who believe in using technology to create meaningful impact. Our company is virtual and we have team members based around the country.

What Makes Given Unique?

We are a company founded on values of giving and doing good in the world. Our team members all work full-time in their respective fields and help build Given as a side hustle in their extra hours, with the opportunity to earn equity in the company. Leveraging their talents, technology, and business acumen, we are able to bring our vision to life and into the hands of people around the world.

Our ‘Why’

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 also creates community, unites people with a common purpose, and allows individuals to share their values and charitable interests with others.
