    share money

    When a group decided to buy something that is quite expensive for just one or two persons, they all share money to get a bigger amount enough for buying that something.

    What do you call what they do?

    Re: share money

    Informally, all these three are possible:

    'They clubbed together to buy him the present.'

    'They all chipped in to buy the present.'

    'They had a whip-round to buy the present.'

    More formally, you could say,
    'Everybody contributed something towards the present.'

    (a present [Uk] = a gift [US] )
