Step 1: Navigate to your Giving Day 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 organizations participating in the day. 

Step 2: Search for a Participating Organization

On your Giving Day site, you'll find multiple ways to search for a participating organization to support. You can search by any of the following criteria: 

  1. Organization Name/ Keyword

  2.  Location (we recommend using City, State!)

  3.  Cause Area (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 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. 

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 your display and anonymity settings for your donation, 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.

For gifts of $300 or more, there will be an option to pay directly through your bank via their online platform. To change your method of payment to direct transfer from your bank, please select the dropdown at the very top and change your desired payment method. To finalize your gift, continue on to the third step.

Note: If you're not located in the U.S., you will be able to select another country from the "Country" dropdown box, and you'll be able to 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 cover the per-donation platform and transaction fees. 

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 and then be prompted to click "Submit".

If you have any questions at all throughout the donation process, chat into the blue chat bubble in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. Our Customer Support team will be happy to assist!
