Receiving Donations

Donations are regranted on the 10th of each month. That means, for example, if a donation was made on January 20, regrant checks are normally sent on or near February 10. For more about how donations work, please read our Terms of Use.

Disbursement checks are mailed to your address, unless your nonprofit has set up an electronic funds transfer (EFT). You can access information about your disbursement from the admin menu, after signing up. If you have any questions, please contact
