Community Fund FAQs

Answers to frequently asked questions about Community Funds.

How many supporters / donors can a fund accommodate?

There is no limit to the number of supporters, the more the merrier!

Do supporters get a tax receipt?

When supporters make contributions, they do get their own tax receipt at the time of donation. If they have a Charityvest account, their donation will be recorded in their account history. If they are making a guest donation, their tax receipt will be automatically emailed to them.

How do I preview what the Community Fund page looks like?

To get a preview of the fund, we recommend you open an "incognito" window and copy over the shareable link. This will be the view for anyone that you share the link with who is not logged in to a Charityvest account.

Can I change my display name as a fund manager?

In our earliest version, your displayed name as a fund manager will be the name on your Charityvest account. In the future, we plan to make it possible to add a custom bio to your fund manager profile.

Can the Community Fund invest its funds before they are granted?

Though we offer investing on our donor-advised fund product, we currently do not offer investing for Community Fund balances. We may add this capability in future versions.

Can I make a recurring donation to a Community Fund?

Yes, both Charityvest users and guest donors can make recurring donations!

Can I share my Community Fund on social media?

Yes, there are social sharing buttons available if your fund is public. To share on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, you will need to grant Charityvest access to your social accounts when prompted. Alternatively, you can copy the link to the fund and share it directly.
