When you use Gift-It-Forward, you can save for a dream gift for yourself (or birthday boy/girl) AND also help raise funds for a charity. Instead of bringing individual gifts, partygoers can give monetary gifts through their invitations. The money goes towards the party's "gift fund", and gets split between a gift for you and a gift for the charity. Everyone shares in the joy of your celebration!
- Choose your invitation: From our selection of specially designed invitations, choose the one that best represents you and your event. This will be sent to all your guests, so make it fun!
- Choose your charity: From our ever-growing list of partner charities, select the one that you (or you and your child) feel most strongly about supporting. They all do amazing work, so it’s a tough choice, but you can’t go wrong!
- Add details: Tell your guests about your event – who’s celebrating, what you’re celebrating, where you’re celebrating, when you’re celebrating!
- Personalize and Choose Gift: Tell everyone what special gift(s) you hope to get with your portion of their contributions. Select the the percentage of your contributions that will be donated to charities (this starts at 50% and can go up to 100%). Share why your charity is meaningful to you and why you’d like to receive your chosen gift!
- Save and Send: Choose your guest list by adding contacts from your into your guestbook. Your selected friends and family will be able to see the invitation complete with event details. You can even invite friends and family from overseas! They may be eager to contribute to a gift even though they can’t attend!
As a guest, you can be sure that you will be getting a gift that your host actually wants, while contributing to a cause they believe in – and you don’t even need to shop and wrap gifts! And it’s environmentally friendly! Guests can make donations to your event up to 14 days after the event date (unless you close your event earlier). (Guests who are Singapore tax residents can even enjoy a 250% tax deduction for their charity amount, depending on the charity's minimum donation)
AFTER THE PARTY
Just sit back and make a difference!
Gift-It-Forward applies an administrative fee of 15% on the total contributions received for each party. Within 14 days of closing a party, we will send you back your portion of the net donations so you can buy the gift that you really wanted, and we will also send the charities their portion of the net donations. By sharing your joy and your generousity, you are making a difference.
