We process and send out donation eChecks quarterly, during the months of February, May, August, and November. Nonprofits should expect to receive their eChecks in these months. (See more about eChecks here.)
The exception to this rule is if it is your first donation eCheck with Giving Assistant. This first eCheck will be eligible for processing and payout 180 days after you have signed up and successfully verified your email address. After that 180-day period, your eCheck will be disbursed in the approaching payout month.
For example: if you sign up with Giving Assistant and verify your email address in June, your first eCheck would arrive the following February. That is because February is our next disbursal month, which is when you should expect your first eCheck.
From that point on, you’ll receive eChecks about every three months.
