General Overview: For Charities
Ever Loved helps people celebrate the lives of those they have lost. As part of this, families can create memorial websites where they're able to suggest that people donate to a cause in their loved one's memory. We're currently hosting hundreds of fundraisers and have had organizations such as American Cancer Society, Ovarian Cancer Alliance, and Dementia Society of America (and more!) sign up to start accepting funds.
Ever Loved doesn't charge a platform fee on donations. Only payment processing fees (2.9%+30¢) are deducted from each contribution. For example, if someone donated $100, $3.20 would be deducted for payment processing. The rest would go to the charity.
(Contributors are able to add an optional tip on top of their contribution, which helps Ever Loved cover operating costs. The tip is an optional tip to Ever Loved. Tips allow us to run our business without taking a percentage of donations or charging families to create memorial websites.)
If you were to sign up on the platform, you'd set up either a Stripe Express account or, if you already have one, connect a Stripe Standard account. Once you've connected an account, any donations made to your organization on our platform would automatically deposit into your payout account after the initial processing period.
The first donation takes up to 7 business days to process and payouts are made on a weekly basis. Any time a family sets up a website and chooses your organization as their charity of choice, we'd send you an email letting you know. There wouldn't be any action required by you at that point as all funds are deposited automatically.
(If you're not signed up with us and aren't interested in donor data / automatic deposits, we send a check at the end of every month via our partnership with CharityVest.)
