Making a Donation on America’s Charities Website

The best way to support your favorite charities is to donate through your employer’s workplace giving program, where you can take advantage of the benefits of payroll deduction giving. Through our America’s Charities Engage CSR online giving tool, we work with employers to provide employees multiple ways to give, including volunteerism, payroll giving, matching gifts, fundraising and crowdfunding. 

If your employer does not offer workplace giving as an employee benefit, consider asking them to start one by sharing the following webpage with them:

We also invite you to use our website to connect with our nonprofit members and find multiple charities to support. Our 501(c)(3) charity members are reviewed annually and must meet specific eligibility criteria before they’re approved for membership.

Here’s how:

Step 1

Visit to view a list of our members you can support.  By clicking on a charity’s logo or the “Learn More” link, you can read more about the work they do, easily access their website, and find their EIN and CFC numbers.

America’s Charities nonprofit membership consists of over 100 nonprofit organizations that address a diverse range of causes.  To narrow your search based on a specific interest, you can use the search tool or click the “Cause” button and select as many causes as you want from the dropdown list.

Step 2

When you are ready to add a charity to your shopping cart, click the blue “Give Now” button so you can select a donation amount. Then click the green “Give Now” button to continue. The charity will be added to your shopping cart, where you can continue to “Checkout” or click “Keep Shopping” to support additional nonprofits. 

If this is your first time donating through America’s Charities’ website, you encourage you to click the “Login and Checkout” button to create an account.  By creating an account, you can set up recurring donations and return to our website anytime to edit and update your giving preferences. You may also select “Checkout as Guest” (but you will not be able to make a recurring gift).

Step 3

After clicking “Login and Checkout” you will be prompted to create a password and enter your email (we’ll use this email to send your tax receipt). 

Once you provide this information and click “Create new account” an email will be sent to you with a link you must click to activate your account. If you are ready to submit your donation, enter your billing information and click “Complete Donation.” To return to your shopping cart to edit your donation or “Keep Shopping” for additional charities to support, click the “Cancel link.”

Step 4

When viewing your Shopping Cart there will be an “Options” button you can select. By clicking the “Options” button you can make your donation to a charity “in honor of” someone and enter an email address to notify that person that a gift has been made in their name.  You can also select “Repeat my donation” to schedule a recurring donation to the charity. If you utilize these features, once you click “Update Cart” the screen will refresh to reflect your updates.

What you’ll see after you update your cart if you choose to make your gift in honor of someone, or select “Repeat my donation”.

Step 5

When you click “Checkout” you will see a summary of charities you’ve chosen to support and will be prompted to enter your billing information.

To submit your donation, click “Complete Donation.”  You will then be presented with a receipt for your tax records (a copy of your receipt will also be emailed to you). If you need to edit your order, click the “View your donation details” link and click “Edit this order.”

You can view your donation history or update your user account information any time by visiting our website and clicking the green “My Account” button from the top navigation bar. If you do not remember your password, click the “Request new password” button to have a new temporary password emailed to you. Should you have any questions about your donation, please contact America’s Charities at or (703) 9577888.
