Our class is organising a party. Here everyone has to pool in some money. We'll get passes for that.So I ask my friend:
Will give for the pass tomorrow?
Will pay for the pass tomorrow?
(Will you get the pass tomorrow?)

So what should be used :give money for/pay for the pass?
Thank you:)

    So I ask my friend:
    What is that you want to know from your friend? Whether he/she will pay the next day, or whether he/she will pay at all?
    Will give for the pass tomorrow?
    Will pay for the pass tomorrow?
    (Will you get the pass tomorrow?)
    Note that paying for something and getting it are two different things, even if one follows the other closely.
    Will you give money for the pass tomorrow?
    This is grammatical but unnatural, unless you're asking that person will pay in money rather than something else for the pass.
