  3. The company initiates a stock buyback program.

When will this offering close?

What is a Reg A+ Offering?

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines Regulation A as an exemption from registration for public offerings. Regulation A has two offering tiers: Tier 1, for offerings of up to $20 million in a 12-month period; and Tier 2, for offerings of up to $50 million in a 12-month period. Uncommon Giving’s Reg A+ is a Tier 2 offering.

Regulation A+ provides for the sale of securities to investors (accredited and non-accredited) while also permitting public promotion of the offering and investment opportunity as it would be provided for in a fully public registered offering.

What is a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a tax-smart charitable giving account that makes it easy to track all giving from one, convenient digital wallet. Every time you fund your DAF, you'll get an immediate tax receipt - even if you choose to direct the gift to a specific nonprofit or cause at a later time. Donations are processed through Uncommon Charitable Impact, Inc. (UCI), a 501(c)(3) public charity.

What is UGIV Market?

UGIV Market, a subsidiary of Uncommon Giving Corporation, is a marketplace where Goods + Giving come together and where you can find Uncommon branded merchandise. They empower a new generation of shoppers with fun, relevant products on a consumer-direct platform of generosity. UGIV Market is the first online market with a non-competitive transparent business model that places a portion of traditional retail profits from products directly into an Uncommon Giving digital wallet, so customers can donate that profit to any of more than 1.2 million 501(c)(3) organizations they choose at UncommonGiving.com.
