Collecting Donations

Once you’ve created a campaign, you’ll need to understand the details of how the money is collected, transferred to you and what security is put in place for you and your supporters.

Payment Options for Donations

Donations can be made through:

  1. CREDIT CARDS or BANK ACCOUNTS.
  2. CHECKS or MONEY ORDERS MAILED to FUNDED JUSTICE OFFICES.

If your supporter chooses to use a credit card we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card and American Express. The payments are applied directly to your account. We use Stripe to process all credit card transactions.  

To accept credit card and bank account donations, you will need to create an account with Stripe. It’s quick and easy to do. When you create your campaign you will be directed to Stripe to setup your account. Your supporters can donate without leaving the Funded Justice website. They can also link to a U.S. bank account or use their own Stripe account to donate. When your Funded Justice fundraising campaign is over, your donations will be transferred to your account automatically.

(Donations will be easily transferred to your Stripe account at the end of the fundraising period.)

The information you provide about your account is encrypted and sent only to the credit card processor (Stripe). Funded Justice will never see or store this information. To learn more about the security steps taken by Stripe look here or to see the security steps taken by Stripe look here.

If you choose to have payments sent to our office, our mailing address is:

7th Floor
Chicago, IL.  60603

Please include the campaign owners name and the campaign’s name

Payment Fees

The fees charged for credit card and bank account donations through Stripe charge 2.9% + $.030 per transaction. These fees, along with Funded Justice’s fees, are deducted from the total amount of money raised at the conclusion of the fundraising period.

If Funded Justice receives a payment by mail, and there are insufficient funds, we will charge $30 to cover bank fees.
