About Us

Giving Assistant Insights

Shopping is part of our DNA.  At GivingAssistant.com, we make online bargains and deals easy for our users.  We want to enhance your shopping experience by giving you the best deals from the brands you admire.  Shopping should also be a conduit for making the world a better place.  We donate a percentage of our profits to charitable organizations and watch for new ways to make a difference in the world.

Founded in 2011, the GivingAssistant.com was designed to use shopping as a sustainable source of giving for social and charitable causes.  In 2019, GivingAssistant.com was purchased by Upright Data as a flagship property in the Upright Data Network. 

How We Make Money

  1. Giving Assistant partners with over 3,000 major online retailers. Many of these brands pay us a commission to help promote their products and services. 
  2. When we promote brands on the Giving Assistant insights page, we may use an affiliate tracking link for brands that we partner with. This means we make a small commission on products purchased through links on our blog. There is no additional cost to our shoppers when a purchase is made using an affiliate link.
