How things work
We offer children a platform that helps them set financial goals for gifts and experiences they really want.
  • Step 1
  • First, create your goal, including your details, what the occasion is and an image of the gift your child would like. If you are having a party you should use the editor to create an invite with all the details for your guests.

  • Step 2
  • Next, add your bank details to your account so you can withdraw the funds you raised directly to your nominated bank account. You can also check the ToDo list in your profile page to see whats outstanding.

  • Step 3
  • Finally, share your goal with your friends and family via WhatsApp, email, or text. Your contributors will receive a message with a link that invites them to contribute to your goal with your personal message or video.

About Us

ChippingIn is the only crowdfunding platform designed specifically for children to collect money from friends and family to help them achieve their financial goals.

Kids who have goals – whether creative, academic, or even personal ones – will do better in life than kids with no plan at all. With this in mind, we created Chippingin, to offer children a platform that helps them set financial goals for gifts and experiences they really want, create a short pitch and share this with loved ones.

Designed by a mother and son, Gaia & Michael, during lockdown in London, so that Michael could ask his family who were unable to attend his birthday party that year, to chip in for a saxophone, rather than sending toys that would probably end up played with once and then stored under the bed. Realising that other families could benefit, as well as the environment, we built Chippingin and Michael has loved learning Jazz!

We want to make gift giving a more personal experience that is fun and easy, that supports children’s growth and lets their community contribute to be a part of their journey.

Our Philosophies

Gifting made easy.
We believe there should be a more fun and personal way to give kids money for a meaningful gift.

What it costs
