A: As leaders and participants in many community and school organizations, the Give
2 Network founders experience first-hand the challenges small groups face in
raising money and communicating and running their organizations. We felt that there
was no existing resource for groups to easily stay connected and fundraise online
– thus Give2Network was born. Not everyone can make financial contributions
or volunteer their time to fundraise with traditional methods such as bakes sales,
car washes and writing sponsorship letters. It’s our hope that Give2Network
will empower groups to maximize their fundraising efforts by allowing them to give
back by doing what they do every day – searching and shopping online.
A. Give2Network sets itself apart in several ways. Unlike traditional fundraisers, you can raise money WITHOUT doing anything you wouldn't otherwise be doing! No buying cookie dough or selling magazines or doing jog-a-thons!
With our convenient group homepages, you will stay connected with your group with scrolling announcements and raise money while you browse and shop the web. Unlike similar programs, you won't have to sign in each time you search or shop and we make it a point to give more revenue back to your group.
A. Everyone! Give2Network is free and easy to use. Please tell all your friends and family about it - they can all help to support your group, just by doing what they normally do. Another great thing about the program is that geography is no longer an issue – so you can get friends to use the homepage even if you can’t get them to buy cookies from you!
A: Give2Network will send each active group a check twice a year (at the end of January and July) providing the organization has accrued $20 or more.

Sign up sheet FAQs
A: With a preset signup sheet event planners are able to make a list of items or events that need to
be filled by their supporters. This gives event planners the ability to plan exactly what needs to be
brought or spots that need to be filled for their upcoming events. A blank signup sheet gives more flexibility
to supporters to fill in the items or event they wish to bring or participate in.
When adding items to the list please be sure you are clicking on the “ADD” button to the left of the box.
Without clicking the “ADD” button it will not save it onto the signup sheet which maybe the reason to why it
does not show on your final sheet. If you are still having problems please contact our support team
A: Coordinators completely oversee a group’s account with Give2Network. They not only have access to updating a group’s homepage but also to create and edit all group events and signup sheets. On the other hand, event coordinators are only able to create and edit their own events for the group.
A: In order to make changes to items or events please contact your event planner.
Event planners are the only ones able to make changes to an event. However, in the future
participants will be able to edit their own entries to an event.
