Frustrated at how hard it is to make
grant payments? You're not alone.

Your challenge

As a foundation or DAF, you want to distribute grants to charitable organizations. You need to ensure that the funds get to the charity safely and securely, sometimes only after the grantee agrees to the terms of your grant.

So, if you're like so many other donors, you'll do one of the following:

Send a check

You search for the charity's legal address and mail them a check. But checks get lost and stolen, and don't enable you to get the charity's consent to your grant conditions.

Send a wire transfer

You need to first track down the charity, and obtain from them their bank account information, as well as a copy of a cancelled check. You need to store this information securely, and to review and vet it. And you still need a whole platform to manage grant acceptance and track distributions.

Now with GivingTech Grant Payments, there's a (much) better way.

GivingTech makes it easy to grant payments, online and securely, to over 300,000 U.S. charities. All for little more than the price of a stamp.
Dedicated granting account
Receive a dedicated escrow account, FDIC-insured and hosted at Citibank, to host your grant payments. Wire funds into your account when you're ready to make a grant, or keep a balance in your account to make your granting even more efficient. Through GivingTech you can see the real-time balance of your granting account.
Search for your grantee
We support digital giving to over 300,000 U.S. charities. Search for your grantee by name, EIN, or address, and easily save charities that you make repeat grants to. When you're ready to give, enter the sum you'd like to grant, and the date you'd like to payment to be made - immediately or at a future date.
Attach fundholder details, designations, dedications, and grant letters. Then, define the terms and conditions of the grant: If the charity refuses them, the funds stay in your granting account. If they're accepted, the funds are instantly deposited into the charity's bank or Paypal account.

Fund Transfers

When you make a grant through GivingTech Grant Payments, an email is sent to the charity's official representative. In order to claim the grant, the charity logs into its Paypal Grant Payments account, and accept the terms of the grant. The funds are then instantly deposited into the charity's verified bank account or Paypal account).
