Good to know

Monthly gifts will soon require an Impact Account

Changes are coming soon to the monthly giving experience on Charitable Impact. Moving forward, if you would like to give monthly to charities, Giving Groups, or Campaigns on Charitable Impact, an Impact Account will be required to do so.

Each month, the gift amount is charged to your payment method and deposited to your Impact Account. Gifts to charities, Giving Groups, or Campaigns then come from the balance of your Impact Account.

Cancelling monthly gifts in your Impact Account

If you’ve created monthly gifts in the past on Charitable Impact, these monthly gifts can continue without an Impact Account. 

If you need to cancel your monthly gift, find and open the email from hello@charitableimpact.com under the subject line “Thanks for setting up a monthly gift to...”. Select cancel your monthly gift at the bottom of the email.

Consolidating monthly gifts in your Impact Account

It’s important to know that existing monthly gifts you’ve set up on Charitable Impact in the past will not get transferred to your Impact Account upon account creation.

If you have now signed up for an Impact Account and wish to manage all your monthly gifts from your account, you’ll need to cancel the monthly gift you created without an account (see above), and re-create it when logged in to your Impact Account.
