Have questions?

Hopefully we already have an answer for you, but if you can't find what you're looking for, don't hesitate to get in touch.

What is Give?

Give is an online platform that enables anyone to give any amount of money to any musical artist, directly.

Gifts from patrons to artists are at the heart of Give. A Gift is an expression of gratitude and support from a fan to a musical artist they love. It can be for a small or large amount. It can be a one-time gesture of support or an ongoing expression of patronage. How you choose to use Give is up to you.

Why would people give money to me?

Album sales are in a steep decline and many new distribution methods don't pay enough for artists to make a living. The fans that "get it" are looking for another way to support the artists they love.

Does Give take any of the money?

We take a small fee from each Gift:

  • $0.50 for Gifts of $1 to $5
  • 10% for Gifts of $6 to $50
  • 5% for Gifts of $51 or more

This fee covers the costs of maintaining the service, which include payment processing, transfer fees, and server infrastructure. Our goal is to maximize the amount of money that goes directly to artists, while building a sustainable service for artist support.

We show this amount to patrons when they are deciding how much to Give, in order to make our fees transparent.

How did you get a profile for me?

We have a database of artists that we acquired from other services. We also enable a small group of our trusted users to help us maintain and grow this database. It is the intention to enable anybody to Give to any musical artist, so we are attempting to create a fully comprehensive database.

If you have any questions or concerns about your profile, please let us know.

How do I get involved?

You can sign up by claiming your profile or contacting us directly.

Once we verify your identity and you provide us with payment information, you will receive all of the Gifts in your account at the end of every payment period.

Everyone loves music

It transports you: whether you are making dinner, waking up, walking to work, enjoying a quiet afternoon, traveling solo, sharing moments with friends, dancing to your favourite song, or just listening.

Artists make music. They create the songs and sounds that form the soundtrack of our lives. Give is a service that allows you to directly support the artists that you love.

It's a response to a massive shift in the creation and consumption of music. The Internet has bridged the gap between artists and fans and has opened incredible new methods of music distribution. The old rules, based on the idea of selling a physical product, no longer apply.

There are a myriad of ways to buy, download, stream, sample, and share music — some of which compensate artists financially and others that don’t. Many artists don’t get paid as much as they should.

Give is a platform that aims to fill this void. It allows you to give any amount of money to any artist. Directly.

Much more than a “like” or a “stream”, this method of support carries weight. It’s an act of patronage that simultaneously expresses gratitude and supports the artist's future work.

There is a small team working behind Give. We are not in it for a quick buck. There is no exit strategy. We love art of all kinds and have a close connection with music. We believe that the ability to support artists financially is a critical part of a healthy creative landscape.

We are here, and we will keep making Give a reality.
