The Giving Circle FAQs

How are the winners determined?

Before each grants round (we do several throughout the year) we'll announce the amount and how it will be distributed.

Our current round closes on June 30th 2018 and the grants will be distributed as follows:

$22,000 shared between 40 Charities.  The #10 Charities with the most Votes in each category - Animals, Disadvantaged, Medical and General - will receive grants as follows:

  • The Charities with the most votes in each category will receive $2,000 each.  4 grants in total.
  • The 2nd and 3rd Charities with the most votes in each category will receive $1,000 each.  8 grants in total.
  • The 4th and 5th Charities with the most votes in each category will receive $500 each.  8 grants in total
  • The 6th-10th Charities with the most votes in each category will receive $100 each.  20 grants in total

To receive a grant a Charity must finish in the Top #10 for their category and have at least 1,000 votes

Is there a minimum donation level?

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?

For this round there is no platform fee on your donations for most participating charities*. Charities pays a small one-off fee to use the platform, meaning your entire donation (less unavoidable credit card fees) goes to your charity each month.

 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

How often can I vote?

You can vote once a week for your favourite Charities and choose up to 3 each time.   Votes cast more often than once a week are disregarded.  You can donate as often as you want, and we add 1 Vote for every $ you give as a one-off donation and more if you commit to monthly giving.  Please be aware that if you vote using fake email addresses or multiple email addresses your vote will not count.  Even if you see the vote count go up, all fake votes are scrubbed before the grants are awarded.

Will I be contacted by any Charities?

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]

* For this round charities pay a one-off fee of $200 and 0% platform fee.  Some charities may remain on our old pricing plan which means our normal platform fee of 6.5% applies on donations.  If in doubt please check with the relevant charity.
