Before you get started, you'll need:
- Your nonprofit organization’s EIN number and bank account information.
Go to GiveLively.org and input your EIN number, name and email address on the home page, and follow the provided instructions.
Next, you’ll receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Open it and click “Connect to Stripe.” Stripe is a well-known and trusted payment processing company that processes payments using the highest security measures. Over one hundred thousand companies, including Target, Facebook, Yelp, Shopify use Stripe to securely process payments online.
Once you click “Connect To Stripe”, you’ll be prompted to create an account with Stripe directly. This account is something that you will manage independent of Give Lively. You will connect your Stripe account to Give Lively membership for donation disbursement. If you already have a Stripe account for other purposes, you can connect that Stripe account to Give Lively to authorize us to direct donations there. Learn more about the donation disbursement process here.
Once you’re connected, look out for an email from email@example.com welcoming you to our nonprofit membership community. We’re happy to have you!
