When a donor pledges to send a check as payment for their donation, the funding is only applied to your project after the check has been processed in our office. At that time, we’ll apply the funding and notify you of this donation via email.
Until the check arrives, your project will remain open for funding from other donors, and may become fully funded before the check arrives (so you can keep spreading the word!). If that happens, we’ll deposit the donation into your donor’s account so that they can choose a new project to support.
If your project qualifies for a Double Your Impact match offer, the check donation will only be matched if the match offer is still live when the check arrives in our office.
