As a fraud prevention measure, you don't have access to request the funds until a donation has been there for 14 days so that if somebody sees a charge on their statement that they didn't make, we haven't paid it out right away-quite simple.
This period allows time for all cards to be debited, and gives the FundCare team time to carry out some sensible checks and balances to make sure everything is in order.
The "TALLY-UP" so to speak.

How to request funds/PAYOUTS:

Include only the following 5 (five) things:
*Your name
*Your campaign title and catergory
*Your campaign end date
*Your physical mailing address (We do not send Checks to P.O. Boxes)
