"It's both thrilling and empowering to know that through GiveForward, people going through very difficult times have been able to access funds that will support their healing process," said Desiree Vargas Wrigley, GiveForward co-founder and CEO. "When Ethan and I started GiveForward in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we were struggling with the same question that many people grapple with: 'How can we help?' We are happy that GiveForward has helped connect and support so many – both the donors and those in need – and we look forward to helping even more in the future."
