Track Volunteer Hours

Students can log and verify service hours through GivingPoint while Non-Profits and Schools can easily and quickly verify hours for their student volunteers. It all comes together with easy tracking of service hours for everyone involved resulting in points, grants, and service awards.

Create and Support Causes

Students, Non-Profits, and Schools can join or create a new project to support a cause they are passionate about.  Adding the project to a profile is a great way to showcase civic engagement.  Friends, family, and supporters are all able to donate directly to a projects and share them online.

Earn Points, Give Grants

Students can earn points by completing service hours, participating in our online education platform, creating a profile, writing blogs, affiliating with a non-profit or organization, and inviting friends to join GivingPoint. When students enter their hours, create a project, or complete a quiz, the points are added up on their profile. Students can cash in their points for grants to causes they care about.

Build Your Civic Resume

A civic resume is picture of a student’s civic footprint.  Students on GivingPoint can begin to verify and record the positive impact they're making in the world. When volunteer hours are verified, they are automatically added to the student’s civic resume along with total giving points, creating a central location where students can view all of their GivingPoint accomplishments and contributions.
