Giving charitable dollars to friends and other people from your Impact Account

From birthday presents, to children's allowances, to "thank you" gifts—sending charitable dollars to friends and family can be a great way to inspire those around you to give.

On the web:

  1. From the dashboard, click the blue Give button at the top of the page.
  2. In the menu box, click the white Give button next to "Give charitable dollars to a friend." 
  3. Enter the amount you'd like to give. If you will be giving to multiple people in a single transaction, each person will receive the amount you choose — for example, if you give to 3 people, entering a $20 gift amount means each person will receive $20 for a total of $60 being withdrawn from your Impact Account.
  4. Choose one or more recipients by entering their email addresses in the Give to field. Separate multiple email addresses with commas. You can give to a maximum of 25 people per transaction.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. Review the details of your gift and click Send gift.

On the iOS app:

  1. From the Home screen, select Create gift.
  2. Select Create a gift for a friend.
  3. Under Give to, select Choose recipient.

    The Choose recipients screen will appear — from this screen, you can choose Friends you've already connected with on Charitable Impact and Contacts not yet on Charitable Impact (if you've allowed access to your contacts via the app).

    You can also add a recipient by email address by clicking the add recipient icon at the top right of the screen.
  4. Once you've finished selecting the gift recipients, click Continue.
  5. Enter the amount you'd like to give. If you will be giving to multiple people in a single transaction, each person will receive the amount you choose — for example, if you give to 3 people, entering a $20 gift amount means each person will receive $20 for a total of $60 being withdrawn from your Impact Account.
  6. Once you have filled out the rest of your gift information, select Review.
  7. Review the details of your gif and select Send gift.

Common questions

What happens if the person I'm sending charitable dollars to doesn't have an Impact Account?

Recipients will be asked to sign up for an Impact Account. Once they've signed up, the charitable dollars you sent them will automatically appear in their Impact Account. 

What happens if someone doesn't claim the charitable dollars I give?

Recipients have 30 days to sign up for an Impact Account and claim their charitable dollars. If the charitable dollars are not claimed within 30 days, they'll be returned to your Impact Account. You'll receive an email from Charitable Impact letting you know the money is back in your account.
