Total Raised for
Give OUT Day 2016:







Horizons' goal is to make registration as clear and simple as possible. Each participating organization must register with BOTH Give OUT Day's host site (provided by "Click & Pledge") AND the merchant service provider (named "TransFirst*";), which routes donors' contributions to your organization. Neither registration is difficult, but you must complete both. If you run into any problems or have suggestions for how we might improve the registration process, please let us know at
