How it Works
GiftedPath gives parents a tasteful way to say “No gifts, please” while offering your friends and family to make contributions that you can put towards your child’s future.
1. Set up your free page. It's super easy!
- - Pick a URL (i.e.: www.giftedplan.com/samanthakim)
- - Upload a family image.
- - Write a little note for visitors to your page to read.
- - That's it!
2. Send your GiftedPath URL to your friends and family.
Perfect to put at the bottom of party invitations and holiday cards. Great to send to friends and family via email. Post to Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+ and any of your other favorite social networks.
No more hassles with writing or depositing checks. Your friends and family make their contributions by credit or debit card.
3. Your gifts are instantaneously sent to you.
If you have a 529 account:
GiftedPath works with select 529 plans to send gift contributions directly from your friends and family for deposit into your own 529 account. This happens through our secure payments partner, WePay.
Here’s how it works. We automatically create a free, personal and secure WePay deposit account when you create your GiftedPath account. Gift funds go directly from gift givers to your secure and private WePay account. With WePay, you can have your gift funds go directly from your WePay account to your 529 account. Just contact your 529 account and get the ACH instructions to send funds directly to your 529 account. They will give you your 529 plan’s routing number and account number where the account number is specific to your 529 account and often contains your 529 account number. From there, you just need to set up withdrawals from your WePay account to go directly to your 529 account. There are no fees to you at all.
If you have questions about how to do this, just click the feedback tab on the right side of the screen and send us a message. We’re happy to help.
If you don’t have a 529 account:
If you don’t have a 529 account, we send all gift contributions directly to you via our secure payments partner, WePay. WePay is used by numerous crowdfunding sites and is secure, easy to use and free. We automatically create a private, personal and secure WePay deposit account for you when you create your GiftedPath account. WePay is completely free to use.
No fee is charged to you, the page owner, ever.
People that give you gifts are asked to pay a small fee to cover the costs of credit card payments and our hosting costs (the fee is less than the cost of a birthday card and sales tax on a traditional gift). That’s quite a bargain for both you and your guests!
