Givers was founded because the systems our country has available to family caregivers do not meet the moment and future we face in society. When managing their finances, family caregivers prioritize ease, control, and peace of mind. We’ve spoken to hundreds of families who have resorted to stuffing pencil cases full of receipts, building their own spreadsheets, or tallying budgets with pen and paper–all just to feel in control of their money. Too much time and energy is wasted building their own systems, when it could be better spent caring for their loved ones.
We’re very excited to announce the launch of the Givers mobile app to put a 21st-century solution directly into the hands of caregivers nationwide. For caregivers, this feels like a long time coming–a sigh of relief that there is finally an easy-to-use, thoughtfully-designed, custom-built-for-caregivers system to manage their money. They can once and for all retire their homemade systems that add more stress to an already stressful situation. Our app is accessible to all types of caregivers, from baby boomers who may have never used digital banking to millennials—the fastest growing cohort of caregivers—who have liquid expectations across their digital experiences.
Starting today, people caring for loved ones can download the Givers App to have everything they need to manage their finances directly on their device. Our all-in-one personal finance app helps families plan, track, and save on caregiving expenses.
Preparing for caregiving expenses can feel like a guessing game. But guessing can lead to being unprepared in the event of an emergency or major unexpected expense.
With the Givers App, caregivers can easily create separate budgets for everyday expenses and long-term savings, enabling them to work towards both.
Keeping a detailed and organized account of caregiving expenses is important for budgeting and compliance, but also tedious and time-consuming. Caregivers need a quick and convenient method to get back to doing what they do best, caring for their loved ones.
With the Givers Debit Card, keeping a transaction-level history tied directly to budgets and plans is as easy as a swipe of a card. Not only can caregivers keep track of their expenses with the Givers Caregiving Spending Account, but we’re also introducing a separate Care Fund to build up long term savings for emergencies, goals, and a brighter financial future.
42% of families have taken on debt to finance care. In a world where every dollar counts, it’s extraordinarily frustrating that discounts and public/private programs are still too difficult to find and make the most of. Caregivers already have enough on their plates—spending hours looking for coupons, rebates, and government programs shouldn't be an additional burden.
Beyond savings from enhanced planning and visibility, the Givers App helps caregivers access additional resources and money-saving opportunities without barriers.
Givers prioritizes security and privacy to ensure users' peace of mind. We employ bank-level encryption to safeguard data, and sensitive information is kept on secure servers, not on users' devices. As an extra level of security, the Givers App requires a second factor of authentication to conduct any sensitive financial viewing or actions. All deposits are FDIC insured when stored through the Givers App with our partner bank, Thread Bank, Member FDIC.
Lowering the financial stress of family caregivers enables them to take better care of their loved one for a longer period of time. We fundamentally believe that equipping the 53M caregiving Americans with the right finance tools built for them can change what it means to age, care, and live in the US. The launch of the Givers App is a big step in the right direction, and we cannot wait to launch additional tools on top of this foundation very soon!
