Any square that doesn't have an image is available. Just click on the available square you want, fill out the short form, click the "Donate" button and you're on your way!
With our new Fund-icons, you may see a heart, happy face, paw print, flowers or even a company logo. That's what you'd click on to make a donation.
We use PayPal, WePay and FrontStream for all payment processing on GivingGrid.com. They’re all safe and secure. It’s up to the fundraiser to choose the service best for them. You can easily use Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express with any of these services. If the fundraiser has chosen PayPal and you have a PayPal account, you can also donate with the money in your account.
We do not accept checks, wire transfers or ACH payments at this time.
Rest assured that GivingGrid.com and the donation payment process through any of our payment processing partners is secure. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology is used by all to make sure your information is safe.
Your credit card is charged immediately when you complete your donation.
Someone clicks on a square and gets this message:
"This square is currently on hold for another supporter for X MORE MINUTES. Please pick another square or if this is the square you've got to have, you can check back in a little bit. Maybe they won't take it before their time is up? You can also keep clicking this check again button. Maybe they'll cancel it before their time is up?"
GivingGrid works just like when you buy theatre or event tickets online with reserved seating. When someone clicks on a square we hold it for them for 15 minutes to complete the donation. If they don't complete their donation in 15 minutes or if they click on another square, that square becomes available again.
While the fundraiser will certainly make every effort to reach their fundraising goal, your donation will be provided to the fundraiser even if they don't achieve it. Remember, it's still for a good cause. We also cannot guarantee the fundraiser will use the raised funds in the manner specified.
We do not charge the fundraiser any fees. It's free to them, so your entire contribution goes to them (minus 3rd party credit card fees).
Our only source of income are optional small extra contributions that donors provide beyond their donation to the fundraiser. We need this funding to help cover all the costs associated with providing this site for free to all the wonderful causes we support. Think of it as a small tip. It will be displayed to you during the donation process as a separate line item, so you can clearly see the small amount we're requesting. You will be given the ability to edit the amount up or down, all the way to zero if you don’t think we’re deserving. Hopefully you won’t think that…
