iGive Global is an entrepreneurial-minded global non-profit that exists to help at-risk women, children, and people groups in difficult places around the world. Our mission is to Empower extraordinary lives through investing in women and children with a particular focus on microfinance business loan opportunities.
We do this by finding and partnering with local organizations, as well as other great non-profit organizations and NGO’s doing incredible work locally and globally.
Support through Trips, Coaching and Consulting
Our work is supported through Vision Trips, personal Coaching and also our Impact Consulting where we offer organizations assessment, training, and consulting along with our free monthly Business Impact Community group that helps business leaders implement the 3P’s (People, Profit, Planet) business impact strategy to truly enable their businesses to make a difference long-term with a powerful legacy. For information on the coaching, consulting and the free online Impact Community, click below.
We believe there is so much potential in people’s lives that is not realized and unleashed.
Particularly for the poor, displaced, women, children, and people groups in tough places around the world, there has been a gap in opportunity.
iGive Global exists to find and fill that gap, finding opportunities to empower these individuals to realize the fullness of their God-given potential and to become agents of change themselves that impact the world. We do this through support, consulting, visits, and microfinance lending. We do this by operating efficiently, effectively, and with urgency from an entrepreneurial mindset.
The iGive Global Story
Founded by Mike Gingerich in 2015, Mike knows that we can be overwhelmed by the needs we hear about and thus we are not sure how to take action. Mike wanted to add value by “connecting people to people” where he can vet and verify needs and make a way for support to reach those who may not otherwise be empowered. His philosophy is to add value and that everyone can help one! If we all reach out, many can be empowered and see their best potential fulfilled!
iGive Global looks for ways to partner with others. Whether this be existing organizations or fringe spots with great need. One focus is in developing areas and troubled spots around the world where we can partner with local empowering organizations. This can be in microfinance, business training opportunities and other works that fulfill our aim to see the poor, displaced, at-risk women, children, and people groups empowered and unleashed to fulfill their potential. This means meeting practical needs for food, education, support, and small business loans done in the love of Jesus. Many times through no fault of their own due to situations like war, governmental policies and practices, and natural disasters, there is a segment of our world with great potential but very limited opportunity.
Our goal is to change that one person and one family at a time. To see children, women, and other minorities have their needs met and to see their dreams become reality.
Racing with a Mission
Mike does this by connecting with partners doing great work around the world, vision leadership trips, the iGive Global Impact Consulting, and also by raising funds through awareness and particularly through his distance running and triathlon challenges such as completing an Ironman 70.3 and running a marathon in Iraq. Mike is a distance runner and triathlete, competing in events around the US and the world to bring awareness and raise funds for iGive Global. See the video for Mike’s marathon fundraiser in Erbil, Kurdistan, Iraq.
iGive Global was founded with the goal of being an entrepreneurial-minded non-profit both in how iGive Global operates and also in how iGive Global partners and seeks to empower those they serve with.
