Sending a Donation Gift

With the Donation Gifting tool, you’re able to send thoughtful and personal gifts in the form of a donation. Sending a Donation Gift tells your giftee you care about their personal passions and that you want to support their interests beyond their work persona.

A Donation Gift is powerful, but it’s made more powerful by a well crafted message. Learn more about how to make a message that’s both personal and effective.

There are three ways you can send a donation gift:

  • Sending a Donation Gift through the Alyce Dashboard
  • Sending a Donation Gift through the Chrome Extension
  • Sending a Donation Gift through Salesforce

Sending a Donation Gift through the Alyce Dashboard

If it’s your first time signing in and your profile isn’t set up, this article should come in handy: Setting Up Your Alyce Account

  • Navigate to the upper righthand corner, click the yellow “Send a Gift” 
  • Use the open text field under “Who are you sending this invite to?” to enter the name of the person to whom you’d like to send a Donation gift. If you don’t already have your contact saved in Alyce, click “Create New Contact” and add the following information:
    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Work Email Address
    • Name of their Company
    • Verify their Country
  • Once your contact is added, the next step is to select the campaign - or purpose - of your gifting occasion. If you’re not sure which campaign to use to send a Donation Gift, please contact your Alyce Admin for guidance. 
  • If your Alyce instance allows you to select a gift on your own, you can choose a Donation Gift by selecting “Choose your Own”. Once the Alyce Marketplace has loaded, use the search bar to find a charity you already have in mind. If you’d like to explore the Donations Marketplace, use the “Filter” option and select “Donation.” The charities available for donation gifts will appear for you to browse.
  • Once you have selected your charity, click “Choose.” Alyce will then take you to the next step of the gifting process where you select your Invitation Type and draft your message to your giftee. 
Please note: If you do not see charities listed or the option to filter by Donation, it’s possible you have not selected a campaign with Donation Gifting available. Please contact your Alyce admin to make sure you’ve selected a campaign that has “Donation Gift Type” selected in the campaign settings.

FAQ

What Charities are available?

There are over 350 charities available to choose from, and we understand there might be a local charity near and dear to your recipient's heart. That is why we have an option to "Choose your own Charity" in the Marketplace. Select this option, and enter any registered charity. At the end of the quarter, we batch up all the individual donations and forward them to the selected charities. This option is available to recipients in all countries where Alyce can send a gift.

Can I change the value of the donation amount?

The Donation amount is set in the Campaign Settings. An Alyce Admin can adjust the Donation amount.
