Weeve was a free crowdfunding website for nonprofit projects. It was founded by Alex Chung, Vincent Chu, and Trevor Loke[1][2][3] and based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.[4] The site once raised money for organizations including the BC Children's Hospital Foundation and YWCA. Weeve operated based on a freemium model and did not charge fees from donors or nonprofit organizations.

It was launched in July 2012. In August 2012, Weeve joined Canadian startup incubator GrowLab.[5]

On February 14, 2013, Weeve was acquired by LX Ventures.[6]

The Weeve.it website is now inactive.
