    • In this message you can request for changes in the project listing, if you so choose to;
  • This will start a conversation between the charity of your selected project and the Page Administrator of your organisation. A chat window will pop up to show you your message has been sent;
  • You can go to your Page Inbox to find the conversation;
  • Once you have finished discussing the project scope, click ‘Checkout’;

  • Follow the checkout steps;
  • You will be provided with Incitement’s bank details;
  • Transfer the corporate contribution amount to Incitement;
  • Upload your proof of payment during the checkout steps;
