When will the nonprofit receive donations made through the Giving Basket?

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.

Donations made through the Giving Basket, powered by Give Lively, will be disbursed one of two ways:

  • Nonprofits that are not Give Lively members or that have received donations made via PayPal will be mailed a check within 30 days of the close of the month in which the donation was made and if the total value of waiting funds equals $50 or more. For example, a check for more than $50 of donations made in March will be mailed before the end of April. For donation totals of less than $50, once additional donations push the value over $50, a check will be cut during that month’s processing.
  • Charities that are Give Lively members will receive direct bank deposits on a rolling basis and with no minimum threshold amount. This takes 2-7 business days from the time each transfer is initiated.
