Lake Forest-based GiveNetwork announced the launch of CharityBomb, which hosts regional online fundraising campaigns designed to fuel the support and growth of smaller local nonprofits.


The first campaign will support five Southern California charities dedicated to helping local youth with opioid addiction, grief recovery, drug education, overdose recovery, and end or life care for critically ill children. The participating charities include: Solace Foundation, OUR HOUSE/ Camp Erin, GRASP/ Broken No More, Kristie’s Foundation, and California Youth Services. The goal is to raise $5 million dollars for these organizations by August 2, 2017. The funds will be distributed evenly amongst all five.


“We are excited about the launch of CharityBomb, especially this first campaign,” stated Bob Jones, CEO of the GiveNetwork. “We lost our youngest son to an opioid overdose in 2014. The journey of our grief led us to the organizations that are included in this campaign. They all do such great work, but they are small and underfunded. They need the support of the community to continue to do the work they do and help families like mine get the help they need.”


CharityBomb offers donors the unique opportunity to win while supporting charity. As part of reaching the $5 million campaign goal, six winners will be randomly chosen to share in overall cash prizes of $175,000.


The GiveNetwork is a mobile giving platform that enhances charitable fundraising initiatives. They allow donors to engage with and support their favorite charity from the convenience of their smartphone.
