What is Place2Give?
Place2Give Foundation is a registered charitable foundation in Canada and the United States. It provides donors with the tools they need to search, evaluate and give to Canadian and American charities that align with their passions.
How did Place2Give start?
Place2Give was founded by Gena Rotstein in Calgary, Canada in November of 2010 out of Dexterity Consulting. Gena has worked extensively in the non-profit space in Canada and the United States for over 20 years and recognizes a need for the collection and use of charity big data, which is why she founded Place2Give.
After years of working with donors and charities, she envisions a technology that will be able to automate what she is doing for her clients. She pictures a system that will use an algorithm that would automatically match donors to charities based on a giving and charity profile.
Since its launch, Place2Give has become North America’s most comprehensive charitable database of both publicly and privately sourced charity data in North America.
