The campaign is over, can I still donate?
While giving never ends, Charidy campaigns are only 24 hrs long. Your organization's Charidy campaign has ended. We are no longer accepting donations through the Charidy website. If you wish, you may still still donate directly to the organization of your choice. Thank you!
Is my information secure?
Yes. Protecting our user’s information is a top priority. All data entered into our site is securely encrypted using SSL technology as is indicated by the lock symbol in the address bar. All credit card information entering the Charidy system is sent directly to Authorize.net without storing your credit card information. In addition, Charidy uses sucuri.net to monitor any malware or suspicious activity. While Charidy goes to great lengths ensuring our users privacy and security, we are not, however, responsible for any information you share with other users of the website or other third parties.
Are the Matcher’s Pledges Verified?
Yes. All Matchers must sign a legally binding pledge letter prior to the launch of the campaign.
If the goal is not met, where will the donations go?
Charidy campaigns are all-or-nothing; meaning, if the campaign isn't successful, all funds are returned to the donors.
Why don’t I see the donate button?
We have found that some older versions of Internet Explorer do not display the page in it’s entirety. While we apologize for any inconvenience, donating is still simple and easy! Either update your browser or use an alternative browser to donate.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Charidy only runs campaigns for certified nonprofit organizations. The ability for these organizations to issue tax deductible receipts ultimately depends on the laws of the jurisdiction where the organization is based.
How does the general fund work?
Giving to the general fund distributes your donation to all participating organizations to help them reach their goal. The donations will be distributed evenly between all incomplete campaigns.
If I give to an Everyone Fund is my donation tax deductible?
Can I donate anonymously?
In order to promote transparency, Charidy does not offer the option to donated anonymously. However, you're able to select "hide last name" if you have a Donor account on Charidy.
Campaign is over, can I still donate?
While giving never ends, Charidy campaigns are only 24 hours long. Being that your organization's Charidy campaign has ended, we are no longer accepting donations through the Charidy website. If you wish, you may still still donate directly to the organization of your choice.
Does Charidy accept PayPal?
As of now we do not accept PayPal. Because campaigns are all-or-nothing, we need to put a hold on your credit card rather than actually charge it. That would not be possible with PayPal. We hope you enjoy your donation experience with a credit card!
When do I get my receipt?
You will receive your receipt within 24-hours of the successful conclusion of a campaign.
What is Charidy?
Charidy was started with the goal of empowering every individual to create a better world.
Charidy’s objective is to help nonprofit organizations engage more donors and raise more money - enabling them to do more good - thereby creating a better world.
Who is Charidy?
The team at Charidy is made up of individuals who are passionate about supporting nonprofits and helping them make this world a better place. To learn more about Team Charidy, click here .
Why are campaigns all-or-nothing?
Charidy campaigns are run on an all-or-nothing basis to ensure that there is a true sense of interdependency and shared responsibility among the donor community. The Matchers are more willing to contribute generous gifts if the organization can show they have communal support from a large group. While the general community of donors feels more driven to give when they see that an organization has sufficient funds to carry out its mission -- it's all about teamwork!
Will I receive a receipt for the real amount or the effective amount?
Your receipt will be issued with the real amount you donated.
Does Charidy offer refunds?
Charidy will only offer a refund if you are able to prove that your donation was fraudulent.
Can I donate on a mobile device?
Yes, Charidy’s platform is mobile friendly.
How do I know that I am donating to a legitimate organization?
Every organization is thoroughly vetted before they are permitted to launch a campaign with Charidy.
Is the credit card processing secure?
Yes. Charidy takes your security seriously and we take reasonable measures to protect our user’s information. All transaction and credit card information entering the Charidy system is sent directly to Stripe.com. Our servers do not store or process your credit card information. In addition, Charidy uses sucuri.net to monitor any malware or suspicious activity. Charidy is also PCI compliant. We are not, however, responsible for any information you share with other users of the website or other third parties.
What is a Matcher?
A Matcher is typically a philanthropist, charitable trust or foundation, or corporate sponsor, who has committed to match donations until the campaign goal is reached.
Can a Matcher be anonymous?
In order to promote transparency Charidy highly encourages that Matchers’ (personal,foundation, and/or corporate) names are displayed. This also lends further credibility to a campaign and inspires more people to give.
All-or-nothing is one of the most effective aspects of the Charidy model, and is one of the key drivers of our high success rate. It creates an incredible sense of interdependency among all of your donors. Everyone is counting on everyone else to reach the goal or it will all go back! It also transforms the entire campaign day into an exciting event. Your biggest Matchers and your smallest donors will be watching your page every step of the way until you hit your goal. Everyone’s invested in your success.
Also, due to Charidy’s effective strategy and program, and our management of your campaign preparation, we will not proceed with a campaign, unless we are confident that it will succeed.
Do you have an app?
Our app is currently in the works. If you want to receive updates about the app and our other products, please sign up for our newsletter.
Can I make a donation with a check?
As of now, Charidy does not accept check donations. For U.S. Campaigns, donors may donate via Direct Bank Transfer (ACH), which allows the donor to donate directly from their bank account. If you have further questions about check donations, please contact the organization itself.

When will I receive my Israeli Tax Receipt?
You should be receiving a receipt from the payment processor within 7 days of the campaign closing. If you do not receive it within seven days, please reach out to Charidy Support.
Does my campaign need to have matchers?
The short answer... no! You do not need to have matchers to run a Charidy campaign, although we strongly recommend that you do. When donor funds are matched, they are encouraged to give more!
Why is Charidy spelled with a 'd'?
Great question--- we’re happy you noticed! We intentionally spell it that way; we're adding innovation to an old concept. Just like "Lyft" or other companies are innovating transportation, we here at Charidy have created a new platform that's changing the fundraising world.
Where can I see which campaigns are active?
Unless an organization requests otherwise, all of our live campaigns can be found by clicking on the red button on the upper left-hand corner of the screen on a desktop and by scrolling down on our homepage on mobile. If you do not see the red button, then there are either no live campaigns or all live campaigns are unlisted.
