Add a charity split to your NFT

Charity splits are added while creating your NFT. The most common way to launch an NFT on Solana is with the Metaplex candy machine. Another common method is to use the Metaplex storefront. We have a guide for each.

Metaplex Candy Machine

This guide is meant to supplement the Getting Started with Candy Machine guide by Metaplex.

  1. Once you have completed the configuration step and are preparing your assets, you will need to add in a royalty to section to the Metadata (json file) for each NFT.

    Set the seller_fee_basis_points to determine the royalty percentage you would like to be split across creators on secondary sales. (1000 basis = 10% royalty, 10000 basis = 100% royalty)

  2. Under creators.address set each nonprofit address that you would like to support. When setting a nonprofit address, you will also have to specify the share field. The share field corresponds to the percentage of the royalty that will go to the nonprofit address. For example, if you input a share of 100 with a 10% royalty, the entire 10% will be donated to the selected nonprofit. You can find Solana wallet addresses for 200K nonprofits here. If you would like to also send funds to your own wallet, don’t forget to include it in this step!

    Here’s an example of setting a 20% royalty, with half going to Girls Who Code, and half going to Support Ukraine Hospitals:

    {
    "seller_fee_basis_points": 2000,
    "properties": {
    "creators": [
    {"address": "HDKeqLLiXGbSvLxDcFdLodTVSGS47TCYiYgWWt1YNav6", "share": 50},
    {"address": "EXUfkXrmgA3QaYcerGte5bdV6HFNxkZEjThypjukRGYE", "share": 50}
    ],
    },
    }
  3. 🚨 Don’t skip this step! Finally, you need to verify your NFT’s charity splits. If you are minting a collection, it is critical to read this step before continuing: Verify your NFT.

Metaplex Storefront

This guide is meant to supplement the Metaplex Storefront Guide by Metaplex.

  1. Once you have installed and initialized your store, the next step will be to Create NFTs. Here, you can add a royalty percentage to a nonprofit of your choice. In the Royalty Percentage field, input the percentage of each secondary sale that should be paid out to the nonprofit.

  2. After specifying the royalty percentage, you can input each nonprofit address under Creator Splits.

    When setting a nonprofit address, you will also have to specify the percentage input. This corresponds to the percentage of the royalty that will go to the nonprofit address. For example, if you input a share of 100 with a 10% royalty, the entire 10% will be donated to the selected nonprofit. You can find Solana wallet addresses for 200K nonprofits here. If you would like to also send funds to your own wallet, don’t forget to include it in this step!

  1. Search over 200K causes here.
  2. Include the cause’s Solana address as a creator royalty on the NFT platform of your choice.
