Give InKind, a Seattle, WA-based social platform for coordinating community support, closed a $1.5m in pre-seed funding.
Backers included Trilogy Equity Partners, Madrona Venture Group, SeaChange Fund, Keeler Investments, FAM Fund, Grubstakes, Alliance of Angels, X Factor Ventures and Seattle-based influential angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to grow its platform and reach, and develop strategic offerings for healthcare, churches, and other organizations.
Led by CEO and Founder Laura Malcolm, Give InKind is a modern social platform for coordinating support in times of need, from the birth of a baby, to loss of a family member, to medical crisis, and disasters, via its Care Calendar, Wishlist, and Donations on one page.
The platform launched in beta September 2016, and released its full version in January 2019.
The company participated in the Ready, Set, Raise accelerator from the Female Founders Alliance, culminating in an investor demo-day in mid-October.
