A Beneficiary is the specific recipient of your raised funds payout, and should be an organization (or place within an organization) NOT an individual. If there is a need for the payout to be made to an individual, we will need to speak with you by phone as these are approved on a case by case basis.
Enter the Beneficiary information by clicking GUIDE (under the Donate Now button on your campaign home page) and then "Submit payment information". Until this information is submitted to and approved by the LCF Fundraising Team, your campaign will not be activated and your supporters will be unable to shop or donate. This process can take up to 3 business days.
All funds raised will be dispersed within 60 days of the season ending. Either a check will be mailed to the address you provided when you created your campaign OR direct transfer via ACH can be set up. To avoid delays in funds being released at the end of the season, it is important that the Beneficiary information (including contact email) is accurate. If at any point during the season this information needs to be updated, please do so by following the same instructions above for entering Beneficiary information.
Returned checks, or changes to Beneficiary information resulting in checks having to be re-issued, may result in a $40 stop payment fee.
