ABOUT US

United over a shared vision of solving meaningful problems in fundraising with technology that the industry deserves. We have a mission to become the best technology company you have ever worked with.

WHAT WE DO

Led by former fundraiser Adam Martel and technology executive Rich Palmer, Gravyty was founded in 2016 on the core belief that modern technology can supercharge fundraising. Our driving mission is to help nonprofits raise more money - without hiring more people or buying more data - and delivering actions (rather than just reports).

We are on a mission to advance advancement and make nonprofits AI-enabled.
