Donating with Metamask

We'll walk you through the process of making a crypto donation via Metamask here. If you do not have a Metamask wallet, well, then you should head on over to the Metamask website, and learn how to get one!

How to Make a Donation

Once you have chosen a project and set an amount to donate, go ahead and click the Donate button. This should bring up a pop-up window from Metamask to confirm the transaction details.

Confirm Metamask transaction

Verify that the amount on the Metamask pop-up corresponds with the amount you specified on the project page. Take note that the gas fee from the Ethereum network is added on top of the donation amount. Make sure you have enough Ethereum in your wallet to cover the gas fees.

If it looks good hit CONFIRM, and your donation transaction will start. You should see a pop-up that looks like this:

Transaction in Progress

You can check your transaction by following the link 'View on Etherscan', and you should also see the transaction pop up on your Metamask under the 'Activity' Tab. Note that here we used the Ropsten Test Network for demonstration. You should be using 'Ethereum Mainnet' to make your donation.

Once the transaction has been confirmed on the blockchain, you'll be taken to the page next page confirming your successful donation. Nice work!

To Donate with xDai

If you're tired of paying outrageous gas fees on Mainnet Giveth supports donations on the Gnosis Chain (formerly xDai Network). To get Metamask setup on the Gnosis Chain go here. Log in with Gnosis Chain via MetaMask on Giveth.io. You can follow the same process for making donations on Gnosis Chain as on Mainnet.
