How to Donate

This guide explains the different ways you can support an overseas charity or project through Give2Asia. Each of these donation methods can be used to benefit a charity with an existing Friends Fund at Give2Asia. Most methods can also be used to make a donor-advised gift to an eligible overseas charity.

Note: Donors in many countries can support charities through Give2Asia. However, to be eligible for any applicable tax benefits, donors must give through the correct Give2Asia entity (i.e. in the USA, Australia, or China HK-SAR). For online gifts, the donation form’s currency indicates the fund’s location.

US Donors:

If the charity you wish to support has a Friends Fund at Give2Asia, you can donate on their Give2Asia fundraising page using your credit card. Use the search field or filter by location and issue to find your preferred recipient.

To support other Asia-Pacific charities through Give2Asia, please speak with our international giving team. They will share more information about the giving process.

Australia Donors:

You can make a credit card donation to Give2Asia Australia here. If this gift is intended to benefit an approved partner charity, please contact australia@give2asia.org before making your donation so we will expect it.
