Other Ways to Give
ACH, Check, Wire, and Company Matches
We believe Charityvest is the best place for you to grow your donor-advised fund. 🌱
When you transfer a minimum of $1000 from your existing DAF to Charityvest, you will receive the full power of Charityvest (with investments), for no fees, through 2023.
We're happy to accept cash via other modalities, such as ACH credits, wire transfers, and paper checks. We deduct a $20 processing fee to identify, validate, and assign your gift to the correct DAF.
You simply need to send us a note to [email protected] letting us know, and we'll send you wire instructions. Our bank charges an $18 inbound wire transfer fee which will additionally be deducted.
Please include the email address associated with your Charityvest account in the memo of the check. We will process the check and credit the amount to your Charityvest fund within 10 business days, once received.
Checks should be sent to:
75 5th Street NW, Ste 2200
Atlanta, GA 30308
If your company offers a charitable matching program, you are likely eligible to have your Charityvest giving matched by your employer.
Generally, companies either match your donation to Charityvest, or your grant from Charityvest once it is approved and sent - but not both.
If your company matches contributions to Charityvest, you will submit the paperwork required by your company to the matching program administrator or platform. If approved, your company / company's platform will send Charityvest the matching amount, generally within four to eight weeks. When we receive the matching amount, we will post it to your Charityvest account.
Note that some employers, such as Google and Amazon, require us to inform donors that their match may not be used for religious support purposes. If this applies to you, we will inform you when we assign the match to your account. If your employer matches grants out of your Charityvest account, you'll need to determine what information they need to substantiate your gift. Your employer will then send that match directly to the charity to whom you made a gift - Charityvest is not involved in that match.
Interestingly, charitable payroll deductions are still considered taxable income. To avoid confusion at tax time, we suggest collecting your paycheck in your normal direct deposit account, and then making regular / recurring contributions to your Charityvest fund in order to develop a charitable balance. Charityvest does not support direct deposit at this time.
