Since its inception, GiveForward, the online fundraising site for medical expenses, has helped hundreds and thousands of families raise over $3.5 million in times of medical crisis for their loved ones. The site offers individualized pages where those seeking donations can describe their fundraising efforts, upload photos and videos and people wanting to support their cause can make secure donations while choosing not to give out their contact information. Users can also promote their pages on Facebook and help take it viral on the web.

GiveForward, which deducts 7 percent of all donations, aims to become the Kickstarter for medical expenses and other causes and has just received $500,000 in funding from a group of venture capitalists including Tim Krauskopf, New World Ventures and David Cohen.
