Give.com Sells via Sedo (Updated)
It appears that Give.com has sold via Sedo. According to Whois records, the current domain registrant of Give.com is Sedo LLC Transfer Service, which is generally the account domain names are placed in during the sales escrow process. Update: According to a tweet from Sedo broker Dave Evanson, he brokered Give.com in a $500,000 deal.
I looked through my email, and I saw that Dave Evanson was recently brokering Give.com. In fact, Dave listed Give.com for sale for $800,000 via the Weekly Brokerage Listings article in June.
I reached out to Dave to see if he could share any information about the sale, and he confirmed that the domain name has been sold. Dave told me, “At this point I am able only to confirm I have been brokering give.com and the domain is currently in the process of being transferred. I will provide updates as appropriate. Thanks.”
Prior to Give.com moving to the Sedo escrow account, the domain name was privately registered at GoDaddy.
Interestingly, Give.com appears to be an active website. On the about page on Give.com, it says “The mission of Give.com can be summarized in two words: optimizing philanthropy. Give.com wants to help donors and nonprofits make the best use of charitable giving. We are currently focused on making it easier and more cost-efficient for donors and the causes they support to donate, raise, and invest money.” Prior to the privacy, Give.com was registered to an organization called American Charities Marketing, Inc..
It remains to be seen who acquired Give.com and if they also acquired the website and/or business. If more information about the sale is publicized, I will update the article and share the information with you.
Afternoon Update: Dave Evanson just tweeted that Give.com sold for $500,000.
