powering impact and change

sustainable social innovation

at giving tech labs we build technology and sustainable business models to address social issues

1.6 million nonprofit organizations in the US

$1.7 trillion in revenues to generate social impact

decades behind in technology and business models

In a world where people get matched to a movie, a book, a for-hire car and can even swipe right to be paired with love, can we use the same technologies and business models to help nonprofits have a greater impact?

Giving Tech Labs provides best in class technology and sustainability models to deliver results in a sector which has been largely ignored by technologists. We focus on three core areas of innovation to unleash the potential of the nonprofit sector.


we create technologies and sustainable business models for the social sector


we create a global network of labs as a channel for social innovation


we work with venture philanthropy and impact investing to enable sustainable social enterprises
