We love getting feedback about your Gather experience. In fact, some great ideas for site enhancement have come from Gather members. If you have a suggestion, send it to Gather Member Support. We're listening.
About Gather Points™
Each member earns Gather Points™, which are Gather's thank you to members
who create great experiences for others in the community. Each Gather Point has
a value similar to a frequent flyer mile -- currently about $.02 per point.
A portion of the Gather advertising revenue is returned to its
members as Gather Points™. We use different algorithms to determine
which individual user activities are creating community value. Most points
are awarded to members who share content that proves valuable to the
community. To protect against fraudulent activity we do not share the
exact algorithm we use and we change it from time to time. To maximize your
earnings, share great experiences in the form of posts, photos, or videos
that are popular with other members and that even bring new people to Gather
Please note: Gather will turn-off all points earning for members that are
found to regularly republish content that they do not own. We will do so without prior notification or warning. We
reserve the right to remove points earned by members sharing content that does not belong to them as well.
Gather Points Statements
By default, you will receive a Gather Points statement email message every 30 days to
help you keep track of your earnings. If you do not want to receive this message, visit
your Email Preferences page on Gather
and turn off this email notification.
You can hang onto your Gather Points as long as you remain an active member.
Gather may reclaim the Points balance of any member who goes more than 6 months without logging into their account.

Donating my points to charity
We offer charities (registered 501c3 organizations) that are
active on Gather the ability to accept points donations from members. We'll
transform these points into cash for the charity, so that your school, church,
soccer team, environmental group, public radio station, or other not-for-profit
can grow just by joining and participating on Gather. For complete details,
and/or if you know of a charity you'd like to recommend, please get in touch
with us using our Contact Member Support form.
Donating my points to another member
It's not possible to donate your points to another member at this time. You
may, however, donate your points to one of our affiliated charitable
Members outside of the United States
All members can earn points. Gather members who reside outside of
the United States are unable to redeem Gather Points™ for gift cards or cash
