I think that "chip in" is the best option and used most often. Ex. We all chipped in to buy Sally a gift. I have never seen "kick in" or "throw in" used for collecting money to buy something. "Pitch in" is usually used when a group of people are all working to complete an action. Ex. The whole family cleaned the house; everyone pitched in. "Contribute" would be okay, but I would specify that the people are contributing money. Ex. We all contributed money to buy Sally a gift.
