Sponsorship Software Features


Sponsorships, redefined

Everyone has a story, and every story matters. We help donors connect with someone's story in a deep and meaningful way. With your subscription you get unlimited sponsorship types (e.g. student, teacher, sports team, classroom) and unlimited profiles. You also get maximum flexibility in configuration for sponsorship pricing and sponsorship slots.

Identity Mask®

Child safety is a guiding principle. Our Identity Mask® technology allows you to automatically protect private child information from public indexing and browsing. Sponsoring a child unlocks the profile and provides the sponsor full access.

Secure Payment Gateway

Simply and securely link your bank account in just a couple of minutes. Discounted non-profit payment fees. Weekly payouts. Failed payments are automatically retried, and donors are notified when corrective action is neeeded.

Sponsor Updates

Send updates to sponsors on a cadence that works for you. Use our rich text editor capabilities to create fully formatted updates and pictures to your sponsors. Create drafts, preview the update, and then initiate the distribution. Updates are sent via email and also accessible through a sponsors online login.

Moderated Messaging

Allow your sponsors to send moderated videos, messages, and pictures to their sponsorships. A built in workflow allows your messaging administrators to review, accept, and distribute messages. You can also optionally respond with messages and pictures on behalf of the sponsoree. Includes OpenAI powered auto-translation into your target language.

Integrate and Embed

Use the Outgiven API and Zapier triggers to automate your workflows. Integrate your sponsorship directory, gift sponsorships, and Lightning sponsorships directly into your existing website using Embedded Components.

Robust Reportings

Intuitive reports for donor management, auditing, and accounting purposes. Whatever information you need is at your fingertips. Reports are simple to navigate, simple to export to Excel, and you can control access through administrative permissions.

Managed roles and permissions

Delegate responsibilities across your organization, and limit access to just the functions necessary, whether that be reporting, administration, messaging, or sponsorship management.

Gift Sponsorships

Anyone can gift a sponsorship to someone else for any pre-paid length of time. The recipient will receive a gift code via email that they can them use to select a sponsorship. Upon expiration, the recipient will have the option to convert the sponsorship to an ongoing paid subscription.


Occasions provide one time giving opportunities that are above and beyond monthly sponsorship giving.
