How Give Lively Disburses Donations

Give Lively facilitates thousands of donations to nonprofits every year through our fundraising platform. Nonprofit members get a number of benefits, including unlimited access to our platform and fast access to funds. Nonprofits must be a registered 501(c)(3) organization and sign up to become a member. Non-members can only bring in donations through Small Token. Here's how nonprofits receive donations:

How Nonprofit Members Receive Donations

Nonprofit Members have signed up with us and linked a Stripe account.
  • Donor makes donation through Give Lively’s fundraising platform or Small Token.
  • Stripe takes fee (2.2% + $0.30 for Visa/Mastercard, 3.5% for Amex, .8% capped at $5 for direct deposit from a bank account.)*
  • Stripe directly deposits credit and debit card donations to partner's bank account on rolling 2-day basis, and deposits bank account debits on a rolling 7-day basis.
* Nonprofit gains immediate access to donation data and the ability to export opt-in data from donors on Stripe dashboard.

How Non-Members Receive Donations

Non-members are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that have yet to sign up with us and link a Stripe account.
  • Donor makes donation on the Small Token app. (Non-members do not have access to Give Lively’s fundraising platform.)
  • Stripe takes fee (2.2% + $0.30 for Visa/Mastercard, 3.5% for Amex, .8% capped at $5 for direct deposit from a bank account.)*
  • Stripe directly deposits donations to Give Lively Foundation on rolling 2-day basis for cards and rolling 7-day basis for checking and savings debits.
  • Within 30 days after close of the given month, Give Lively Foundation issues a paper check to the organization via traditional mail.
  • Nonprofit receives and deposits check.
* Nonprofit gains immediate access to donation data and the ability to export opt-in data from donors on Stripe dashboard.
