Is there a minimum donation level if I donate?

The minimum donation amount is set at $20.  If you're not in a position to donate, you can can still vote for your favourite charity for free once a week and share the Giving Circle with your friends and ask them to vote as well.

What fees do MyGivingCircle charge?

We charge a platform fee of between 0% - 6.5% on donations received to allow us to maintain and improve the website for the benefit of all our amazing charities.

 What happens if I make a donation?

All donations are processed securely via stripe or paypal and sent to your charity of choice each month.

If you make a one-off donation we add 1 Vote for every $ you give.  For example if you donate $50 we add 50 Votes.

If you sign up for monthly giving we add 5 Votes for every $ you commit to.

For example if you commit to $50 a month we add 50 x 5 votes = 250 votes.

You can make a donation here, when you vote, or via our leaderboard at anytime.

If I choose regular giving can I cancel anytime?

We understand peoples financial circumstances change, and you are free to cancel your regular giving at any time by logging into your account.  Please note however that we add extra votes for regular giving (we love regular giving!).  If more than 10% of a Charities regular donors cancel within 3 months of a draw date it can effect their eligibility for a grant

Will I be contacted by any Charities or Grants Sponsors?

When you vote or donate to a Charity they may wish to contact you to thank-you for your support and keep you up-to-date with the work they're doing.  When it occurs, contact will usually be via email, and in some instances telephone.  When a Charity wishes to contact a supporter we have strict guidelines in place that include:

  • Only Charities that you have voted for, donated to, or indicated as one of your favourites can make contact.  We do not share your details with any Charity you have not indicated as one of your favourites.
  • If making contact by telephone, they are only able to contact you once unless you ask for more information or consent to be contacted again. Your contact details are not stored for future contact.
  • If making contact by email there must be a clear and easy way for your to unsubscribe from future emails
  • They must be courteous, professional and polite.   We hope you'll be interested in hearing from them, but if you're not, no further contact is made
  • They must abide by the Fundraising Institute of Australia's guidelines regarding contacting you, which can be  found here

If you believe any Charity is not abiding by these guidelines we want to hear from you and you can send an email with the details to  [email protected]

When you vote in a Giving Circle the grants sponsor may wish to email you to thank you for voting, let you know which charities received the grants and/or introduce themselves and their product(s) to you.  By voting you are giving express consent to be contacted via email only by the grants sponsor on the basis that:

  • contact can only be via email unless you are informed otherwise
  • you will always have the option to unsubscribe from any further communications from the sponsor

If you have any concerns about being contacted by a grants sponsor via email you can opt-out by emailing your details to [email protected]
