iGive Global is a global non-profit founded by Mike Gingerich that exists to Empower extraordinary lives through partnering with great non-profit organizations and NGO’s doing incredible work around the world.
We believe there is so much potential in the lives of people that is not realized and unleashed. Particularly for the poor, displaced, widows, and orphans 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.
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 ministry 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 God-given potential fulfilled!
iGive Global looks for ways to partner with others. Whether this be existing ministries or fringe spots with great need. One focus is in developing and troubled areas of the world to invest in empowering ministries. This can be in microfinance, business and ministry training opportunities and other missions that fulfill our aim to see the poor, displaced, widows, and orphans empowered and unleashed to fulfill their God-given potential. This means meeting practical needs and in knowing the hope that can be found in Jesus. Many times through no fault of their own due to situations like war, governmental policies and practices, and natural disaster, 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 and then raising funds through awareness and particularly through his distance running and triathlon challenges such as running a marathon in Iraqi Kurdistan. 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 below 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.
