Sleepless nights

C iGIVE is committed to empowering the charitable spirit of enterprising millennials by connecting them with the patronage and support of leaders throughout the business and philanthropic world.

While addressing the 2016 Youth Assembly at the UN General Assembly in New York City, C iGIVE founder and CEO Cheri Kaufman challenged the gathering of millennials in the audience by posing a simple but resounding maxim:

“You want a better world? Go create it.”

The response was overwhelming. Almost immediately, Cheri began receiving requests from countless young activists needing guidance, leadership, and support to help transform their charitable visions into real-world solutions. Many wanted to make a difference – but few had the means or the methods to make their awareness heard and their impact felt.

Cheri founded C iGIVE on the principle that millennials possess a unique understanding of the social, economic and global challenges of our time – as well as the spirit, drive, and youthful passion required to overcome them.

C iGIVE connects an extensive network of business and philanthropic leaders who provide guidance, support, and financial groundwork to young people with a vision for a better world and the desire to do their part to create it.
