How it Works
We pair two donors, from different countries, and match their donations. Each donor’s donation supports the other donor’s charity.
Here is an example of how it works.
Justin, from Montreal Canada, wants to make a $1,300 CAD donation to the American Red Cross in the USA. Justin sets up an account and creates a $1,300 donation to be matched and sent to the American Red Cross. The donation is pending on the charity exchange platform until a matching donation is found in the USA.
Joe, from Washington in the USA, wants to make a $1,000 USD donation to the Toronto Homeless Shelter in Canada. Joe creates a $1,000 donation to be matched and sent to the Toronto Homeless Shelter. The donation is instantly matched with Justin’s pending donation to the American Red Cross.
The result, Justin from Canada’s $1,300 CAD donation is sent to Toronto Homeless Shelter in Canada to support Joe’s (from Washington) selected charity. And Joe from Washington $1,000 USD donation is sent to the American Red Cross in the USA to support Justin’s (from Canada) selected charity. Effectively the donors exchange donations by making a recommendation (to the Donor Advised fund) to donate their funds to the charity the other donor selected.
