Instructions (使用说明)




You may donate with or without signing up on our website, but you are highly encouraged to do so. It is only after you register in that you are able to check your total contributions and other information at any time from your “Profile”. OneworldGiving also keeps these records for you. You can choose an account name, provide a true email and set a password to register and sign in. Donors may follow our platform's campaign categories or the link “Discover” to read about cases in need of your support. You may contribute any amount directly onsite using your PayPal account, or using your credit card/debit card through Stripe. If you prefer, you can choose to make your donation to be anonymous. "Manual Payment" is set available only for special campaigns. For a big amount of donation (over $500), to avoid the processing fee from payment companies, you may also contribute by manual payments following the instruction. You will receive an email from OneworldGiving confirming your contribution after it is successfully submitted. Please keep these emails as the official receipts of your donations through OneworldGiving. All your contributions will be shown under the cases you support. You may see the updates and leave your messages under each case that you support until the goals are met.

OneworldGiving is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Therefore, your donations made to campaigns in OneworldGiving are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. However, if you contribute to a special campaign marked with "non-charity activity", your daonation is not tax exempt.


You have to sign up on our website before you can create a campaign to seek help from the OneworldGiving platform. Campaign Organizers must register using your true identities (or the identities of the Charities’ authorized representatives), including your name. A fundraising campaign in OneworldGiving can only be created by people who has an American bank account. Please follow the link “Start a Campaign” to create your campaign and fill in all required information item by item.

        (1) Your campaign should fit within one of the organization’s five categories: 1) Medical; 2) Emergency; 3) Education; and 4) Nonprofit/Charity. You may submit your cases under category “Others” if your campaigns do not fit within any of above four categories. OneworldGiving will approve your campaign if we think it is qualified.
        (2) We strongly recommend that you include your full name in your “Name of campaign” and list your residence and/or location accurately. Therefore, donors will be able to easily search and find your campaign on OneworldGIving’s platform.
        (3) You should upload one main campaign photo (a landscape photo preferred) or video file at first through “Upload your own image” or “Video -”. You may also click the image button in “About Your Campaign” to upload more photos under your campaign. If you are asking people to contribute in-kind donations (such as voluntary labor, donated service, and donated goods), instead of money, you should choose "Supporting" under "Campaign Strategy", and describe what exactly you need in your campaign. There are no deadlines for your posted campaigns until the goals are met, unless you prefer to set a limited campaign duration (up to 180 days). You keep each donation your campaign receive and the money you collect will go directly to your bank account as you campaign is closed.
        (4) After you “Save and Preview”, please continue to upload a file with your bank or PayPal/Stripe account information and your contacting information through the “Files” link, which is located above the picture or video. Or, you may simply save your address and account information for receiving payments in your OneworldGiving account “Settings”, and then you don’t need to input the information for each of your campaigns. Only you and OneworldGiving can view these files/information in the “Files” link or in your OneworldGiving account “Settings”.
        (5) After your campaign has been approved and displayed on our website, you may upload more files and leave messages to provide more updated information and express your appreciation to your donors in the “Updates” section of your campaign. In order to complete this action, please sign in, then enter “Updates” located under the main picture or video of your campaign, click “New Update”, upload your files, and click “Publish”. Please make sure you click “Publish” every time you make or enter a change in “Updates”, and that the “Published” confirmation appears. If the word “Draft” appears instead, please click “Edit” and click “Publish” again. “Published” implies the information you have just submitted is posted on the website for the public to see. Otherwise, only you and OneworldGiving can view your updates and messages here.

OneworldGiving strongly recommends you share your campaigns here with your friends and family members via Emails, Wechat, Facebook, etc. People you know are always the first to support you. In addition, they will share your campaigns with their friends as well, which will effectively attract more donations.
