One Gift Wonder is an online charitable crowd-gifting solution. It allows you to create a campaign and share a link with your friends and family for your next celebration, and guests are able to contribute to your gift fund. The gift fund is split between a gift that you or your loved one really wants and a portion is donated to your nominated charity. It’s quick and easy to get started and use.
You can use One Gift Wonder for any future celebration whether it be a birthday or milestone life event such as an engagement, wedding, baby shower or christening.
No, the nominated charity will only issue you a payment acknowledgement after they have received the donation from your campaign from the One Gift Wonder Fund on your behalf, however this document can not be used to claim tax deductions.
For your friends and family who make a contribution to your campaign, where the donation amount from their contribution is over $2 it will be tax deductible to them. They will receive a tax receipt for their contribution from the One Gift Wonder Fund.
Yes! One Gift Wonder works very well as a crowd-gifting tool for a teacher’s gift or for a wedding as long as you are wanting to give a portion of the money to a charity.
At the end of your campaign, you will receive an email notification advising of the total funds contributed to your campaign, the amount to be donated to your nominated charity, and the amount that will be transferred to your nominated bank account less processing fees.
Currently, One Gift Wonder operates in Australia. We hope to offer our service globally in due course. This means that our charity partners only consist of Australian registered charities at the moment and we can only transfer donations to charities registered on the Australian Charities and Non-for-Profit Commission (ACNC) register. You can however share your unique campaign link with guests located in any country in the world and receive contributions.

Great question – we all know there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and it’s the same when you move funds around electronically.

Before the end of a campaign, One Gift Wonder, at its absolute discretion and on a case-by-case basis may refund contributions made by guests. All such refunds, if any, are made net of any payment gateway fees incurred. If you discover you have made a payment error, please contact us immediately at [email protected].
