How to Give to a Project
Hello Fellow Do-Gooder! You look ready to spread kindness. Before you jump in, browse our Givers Guide. Done? Cool. Now, here’s how to give to a Gifted Project.
1) Go to the Help Others page
Click the Help Others button in the navigation bar at the top of the site.
2) Select a Category
You’ll be taken to the Help Others page where you can view current projects by category or other criteria such as projects trending now. Select a category from the dropdown options.
3) Pick a Project
Once you select a category, you’ll see tons of amazing projects to pick from. Browse the projects, watch the videos and listen to the stories… which ones catch your heart? Those are the perfect projects for you. Click through to your chosen project’s fundraising page.
4) Click Give Now
You’ve picked your project, now click the big bright GIVE NOW button on the left of the page.
5) Choose your gift amount
Think about the needs of the project and what you would like to contribute. Enter the amount you want to donate. You can also make two other important selections on this page.
- Anonymous Giving: You can decide if you want your gift to be anonymous. Click the checkbox if you do not want your name shown on the project’s public list of givers.
- Recurring Gifts: You can opt to make your donation a recurring monthly gift. Click the second checkbox if you would like to continue contributing to this world-changing cause every month.
When you’ve filled in your gift details, click the DONATE button. This will allow you to confirm your gift details and then input your payment info.
6) Confirm your gift amount
Next, you’ll review your gift summary to make sure it’s correct, and click the SUBMIT PAYMENT button. A pop-up will appear for you to input your payment information.
7) Add your payment info and give
In the pop-up, add your credit card information and choose whether you want our secure third-party payment gateway* to remember you. Then click the blue Pay button and your gift will be sent! Yay, you!
A Couple Things to Know
To donate to a project, you have to be signed in to your Gifted Coin account. If you aren’t, you’ll see this little window pop up.
If you leave the page before you finish giving, you’ll see this pop-up. If you choose to finish your gift later, you can find it again in the Drafts of your Account Overview. Take a look at this post if you can’t find it.
8) Remember to get social and share!
Let people know that this is a project you care about and is worthy of gifts.
That’s all! Awesome! You’ve just given to a Gifted Coin project and chosen to spread kindness.
*We use a secure third-party payment gateway called Stripe. None of your financial details stay in the Gifted Coin system.
