How to Donate on the Giving Day event platform:
- Head to the organization’s public profile you would like to give to. You can access this either from the Nonprofit Search page or the direct URL link.
- Click the green ‘Donate’ button at the top of the page.
- This action will take you to the first step on the Donation Form:
Donation Amount: This is where you will need to enter your desired dollar amount or select one from the list of available amounts.
Donation Type: This is where you will need to specify whether you would like to make a One-Time Donation or a Recurring Donation. Usually, the one that is selected is denoted by a darker color shade.
Details: Please select answers to all of the required questions (marked with an asterisk). Your answers to some of these questions may affect your donation total as well. You will also be able to view your total on the final step of the donation form before you submit it.
Add to Cart: Clicking this will add your donation to your ‘Cart’, which will show a tallied total of all donations in the upper left-hand corner of the webpage next to the shopping cart icon. If you happen to click out of this donation form, you can still access your donation total by clicking that Cart icon at any time during your session.
4. Once you have clicked the 'Add to Cart' button, you will be directed to a Cart page that outlines the details of your donation, and will list any other donations you have made to other nonprofits on the platform, similar to how an online shopping order is listed. The total of all your donations will be tallied, and it will match the total in the upper right corner of the page, next to the shopping cart icon. You can also view other Nonprofit pages or set up other donations by clicking the 'View Other Nonprofits' option.
🛈Note: If you navigate away from your Cart page within the Giving Day platform, you can always get back to the Cart page by clicking the dollar amount in the upper right corner, next to the shopping cart icon.
5. Once you have reviewed the donations in your Cart, click the "Continue" button below your donation total.
6. The next page on the form will give you an option you log into a Donor account if you have one. You may also choose to continue as a Guest. If you don't remember your Donor account password, you can also click the 'Forgot Password?' option here to trigger a password reset email sent to the email associated with your Donor account.

7. The last section of the donation form is the Billing page. Here is where you will enter all of your billing information for the donation and finally, review your donations and submit.
Please Submit a Request if you have any questions about submitting your donation on the platform.
