Step 1: Navigate to the Big Give Landing Page
Once there, click on the "Donate" button in the middle of the page to be brought to a list of all of the local organizations participating in the big day.
Step 2: Search for a Participating Organization
On your Giving Day site, you'll find multiple ways to search for an organization (or multiple organizations) to support. You can search by any or all of the following criteria:
- Organization Name/ Keyword
- Location (we recommend using City, State!)
- Cause (via dropdown menu)
Select the "Search" button after making your entry to see your results and navigate to a participant's profile.
Step 3: Donate to one organization, or fill up your Gift Basket!
From the top of the organization's profile, click on the "Donate" button, or select the Gift Basket icon to add a donation for this organization to your Gift Basket and continue browsing for another organization to give to.
Step 4: Customize your donation(s)
When you're ready to complete your donation, you'll have the ability to customize your gift to that organization. You can change the amount you'd like to give, customize the public display settings of your gift, let the organization know if you are a new donor, and even include a personal message! You will also have the option to add or remove gifts to your cart without having to browse through the site again.
Step 5: Select the Business Fundraiser you would like your donation to support from the drop-down list of participating businesses
Once you've completed these fields, navigate to the second step of the donation process by selecting the "Next" button.
Steps 6: Provide Payment information
In the second step of your donation process, you'll enter your credit card information, mailing address, and phone number (optional). All major credit cards are accepted.
Note: If you're not located in the U.S., you will be able to select another country from the "Country" dropdown box and continue the donation process from there.
Step 7: Confirming your Gift
In the final step of the donation process, you'll be asked to review and confirm your donation information. You will also have the option to opt-out of covering the per-transaction platform fees for the organization. Once you have reviewed the information, click the "Submit" button to complete your donation.
You will see the business fundraiser your donation will support listed on the bottom of your confirmation message. Click "Submit" to finalize your donation(s)!
There will be a leaderboard with all participating Business Fundraisers - so be sure to check out your employer's progress on March 28!
