To raise money for your cause when you shop online, start by creating your free iGive.com membership at www.iGive.com, the first internet online shopping mall where a portion of each purchase is donated to your favorite cause.
SHOPPING: It's all automatic! You don't need to enter any codes, notify the store, or iGive.
When iGive members shop via our special links (starting at the iGive.com web site, the iGive Newsletter, or having installed the iGive Toolbar "Donation Enabled"), tracking enables us to identify the purchases of each individual iGive member with an ID number.
You shop the same way as you would without starting at iGive.
When you do start with iGive, our stores automatically send us the needed information (order amount, order date, and your ID number which identifies the user to iGive.com but is meaningless to the online store) so that we can track the donation to each member's designated cause. When you successfully link to an iGive store, your visit will be immediately visible in the You recently visited box.
You can create your own list of favorite store under Favorites.
After being reported to us, your transactions can be reviewed in your shopping report under Stats. It can take up to 30 days after they've shipped (or travel has commenced) for purchases to get posted to your report, although the average is about 10 days. Please review any posted store exceptions.
iGive is a password protected site and only members can access their information and have full control over their personal settings, such as email preferences, under Settings.
We provide many on site tools to help members and causes spread the word to their friends and neighbors. Together we can reach our goal that one day all consumer transactions will contain a percentage which benefits causes close to home.
