'Giftfund' is a crowdsourced gift-giving application that allows multiple different people to contribute to the cost of a gift. One of the problems with giving a group gift is that the act of collecting contributions, purchasing the gift and coordinating shipping can be extremely complicated. This app makes it easier for users to organize a group gift by digitizing the process.

To use Giftfund, users simply log on and create a profile for their gift that includes information about the occasion and deadline for gifting. Users can then invite friends by sharing the unique gift ID number over text or email. These others users can then contribute to the gift by donating money through the app. Once all the funds have been raised, users can then use the in-app search function to find the perfect present. The gift is shipped directly to the recipient and any additional funds are sent as an Amazon gift card.

The app provides the perfect solution for situations in which multiple users are trying to raise funds for large or expensive gift items.
