How can I receive future Giving Basket payments via automatic direct deposit, not a check?
This FAQ addresses Give Lively’s role in processing donations through Charity Navigator’s Giving Basket and may not apply to all Give Lively members.
Apply for free Give Lively membership and, if approved, you’ll receive most future donations (except those made via PayPal) through monthly direct deposits via Stripe. Give Lively membership requires an active Stripe account connected to Give Lively. All direct deposits are arranged as Stripe Transfers and take 2-7 business days from the time each transfer is initiated. Importantly, Give Lively membership also provides full and free access to all of our digital fundraising products.
How to apply
If you already have a Reports Portal account:
- Log in here.
- At the top of the left-hand menu, under “Give Lively Membership,” click “Ready for direct deposit, not checks? Learn more.”
- Scroll down to the application (though the information above it is useful too!) and follow the instructions.
If you do NOT have a Reports Portal account:
- Go to https://www.givelively.org/apply-for-membership to get started.
IMPORTANT: We manually screen all applications. Although filling out the application is a quick process, the usual review period is 7-10 business days from the moment you connect your Stripe account to Give Lively.
