ACH Benefits for Non-Profits, Charities, Organizations

As a non-profit organization, every avenue you can potentially accept revenue through is worth exploring. It’s easier than ever to maximize donations using low-cost ACH payment processing for nonprofits.

  • Control Cash Flow: Eliminate the uncertainty of when a check will be deposited or funds withdrawn. Additionally, donations are deposited right into your non-profit account.
  • Save Time and Money: Having ACH transfers as an option will benefit your sustaining donors, your organization, and your mission. The money will appear in your bank account without having to lift a finger! Plus, ACH payments generally have lower fees which means you can keep more of the donations you’re accepting.
  • Safe and Secure: Provide your donors with peace of mind that their account information is safe when they use a secure donation option like ACH. Unlike checks, which are vulnerable to both being misplaced and to signature forgery, ACH transfers are direct and eliminate intermediaries.
  • Obtain Sustaining Donations: If you offer your donors an option to set up recurring donations on their authorization form they only have to provide their information once but can easily make a second or third donation.

Electronic bank transfers free up time, save money and energy so you can focus on what really matters.
