how it all started

GivePulse History

Although we were officially founded in 2012, George likes to think that the idea of GivePulse dates back to his childhood.

He has a story about weed (the crabgrass kind), working with people with disabilities, the Virginia Tech Massacre and many more defined him as an individual. His first small nonprofit helped high schools fix random technology problems. Through these experiences he came to identify a formula: 30min + $30 = College Education. Specifically, if he and his friends were able to donate 30 minutes to volunteer and install a $30 router, it would provide wifi access to impoverished neighborhoods with children looking to apply and learn more about college.

This formula set in motion a determination to address digital access, and quickly evolved into a platform to scale volunteerism and service-learning.

In 2012, George Luc set out to build a platform. Together with his CTO and co-founder, James McGirr, GivePulse was born, a civic network matching people in our community with causes they care about while enabling easy organization, management and mobilization of volunteers and supporters.

From day one our mission has been to solve tough social problems through the use of technology. Keeping true to that original mission, today our civic engagement platform supports thousands of nonprofits, associations, institutions, businesses and organizations.
