When will my nonprofit receive our donations?

Payout schedules are determined by the payment processor a nonprofit elects.

All donations made on CrowdRise are processed by either PayPal Giving Fund (default) or WePay. For more on how to select the best payment processor for your organization, see Here.

Donation payout schedules are dictated by which payment processor a nonprofit on CrowdRise is on.

PayPal Giving Fund

If your nonprofit uses PayPal Giving Fund to process its donations, you will receive the funds via check if you are not enrolled in the Certified Charity Program or by deposit into your PayPal account if you have enrolled.

For un-enrolled organizations, checks are sent directly to the address on your organization's GuideStar profile 90 days after the first donation is processed, then more frequently for following payments. Enroll for faster payouts via direct deposit.

For enrolled organizations, funds donated through the 15th of the month will be sent directly to the linked PayPal account that same month around the 25th. Any donations received after the 15th will be paid out the following month.



If your nonprofit uses WePay to process its donations, you will receive the funds via EFT (electronic funds transfer) or you may choose to request a check. You can choose daily, weekly or monthly transfers. We recommend weekly or monthly to make reconciliation simple. See Here for how to switch to WePay.


Note about Canada: As of right now, Canadian nonprofits must use WePay EFT to link a bank account and collect funds. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we are exploring additional options.
