Partner Resource Center

This page provides information and resources for our charity partners. Please take time to explore the features of your Friends Fund and see how your partnership with Give2Asia can complement your own fundraising initiatives.

As a Give2Asia Friends Fund partner, your organization can now accept tax-deductible contributions from supporters in the US, Australia and Hong Kong SAR PRC. Give2Asia provides a trusted platform for managing overseas donations and an alternative to establishing and maintaining a US nonprofit entity. Give2Asia handles donations of cash, stock, and Bitcoin; manages all tax receipts; and handles all of the requirements for disbursing international funds to your organization.

YOUR ORGANIZATION will have its own fundraising page that is linked and searchable at the Give2Asia website and enabled to received donations via credit card. Use your unique URL to promote giving to your international supporters by sharing the link through your email, website and social media, as well as printed materials.

Alternatively, you can also customize and share the How to Give Form with your supporters for instructions on how to give off line via credit card or check.

YOUR SUPPORTERS are eligible for tax benefits on their gifts to your Friends Fund(s) through Give2Asia. Give2Asia issues tax receipts to all donors within 2 weeks of their donation (and immediately for online donations).

YOUR SUPPORT TEAM is available at all times to answer questions, provide guidance, and connect you with resources that can further support your mission.

The Give2Asia Network Badge is your “seal of approval” for accepting international donations. It communicates to supporters that they can support your work with a tax deductible gift through Give2Asia:

You can use the badge to link directly to your Give2Asia fundraising page from your website or email signature. Read more tips on how to use your badge here.


Your unique fundraising page is linked and searchable at the Give2Asia website and enabled to received donations via credit card. Use your unique fundraising page URL to promote giving by sharing the link through your email, website, social media, and printed materials. Your page will appear smoothly on any modern computer, tablet, and phone.

Note: While tax benefits are only available to donors where your fund is located (e.g. the United States, Australia and Hong Kong), the form can process donations from many countries.
