Givesom launches Internet-based service for charitable donations

Givesom has launched an online service to enable individuals to make small monthly donations to a number of international and well-established charities. The various organisations are grouped by purpose: Poverty and Humanitarian Aid, Human Rights and Environment and Nature.

Givesom.org is based in Stockholm, Sweden, and was founded by Swedish entrepreneurs, Lin Kowalska, Michaela Forni and Henrik Wagenius. With a clear focus on smart IT solutions and a passionate commitment to charity, they want to make it easier for everyone to contribute to a better world.

Givesom was advised by Mannheimer Swartling on legal issues in the development of the concept. The firm’s team includes Hans Andréasson, Mikaela Källmén, Viktor Leisnert and Amanda Bergerståhl.
