When a cause needs to process a paper donation check, it creates costly administrative work. Non-profits must deposit checks individually and issue manual tax receipts to each donor. Checks also get lost in the mail or worse, sit uncashed!
Electronic payments cut down on manual administration time and reduce costs. Unlike other software providers in this space, Benevity sends the majority (88% in 2018!) of payments processed through our platform electronically, with funds arriving within 30 days.
