This is how Split-A-Gift works
If you're a Host...
Congratulations! You have an occasion to celebrate. Instead of receiving gifts you don’t necessarily want or need, Split-A-gift is a novel and simple way for you to organise your own gift and be charitable in the process. It’s easy for your friends to contribute towards your gift, and because you’re sharing the proceeds with a charity of your choice, you and your friends all get to make a difference!
To use Split-A-Gift follow these 4 simple steps:
Create an account
Once you’ve made an account, create a personal event page through which to organise your gift and event details.
Choose a charity *
Choose a charity with whom to share your gift.
Choose a percentage *
Choose what percentage of your gift you would like to share with the charity.
Share these details with your friends.
Let your friends know about your plans. Share the login details with your guests so that they can access your event page and make a contribution towards your gift.
Then just sit back and wait for the messages to roll in, because every gift you get comes with an email notification.
* It’s your gift, so you get to decide which charity it goes to and what percentage of it you’d like to share.
If you’re a Guest...
You’ve been invited to help someone share their gift with a charity via Split-a-gift. Giving via Split-A-Gift is just as good as getting, and simple to do. You get to give the Host the gift he really wants as well as support the charity of his choice. He may have chosen to give his entire gift to charity, that of course is up to him.
Giving via Split-A-Gift involves the following steps:
1. Log in as a Guest using the login details you received in your invitation
This gives you access to the Host’s event page and gift details, i.e., what gift he is saving for and with which charity he is sharing his gift.
2. Make your payment
Using the payment module at the bottom of the event page you can make your contribution towards the Host’s gift.
3. Write a personal message
After you have made your payment you can leave a personal message for the Host.
4. Sit back and feel good
You’ve contributed towards a great gift and made the world a better place.
