Donation Day payments explained 01 February 2024 11:35 Updated Donation Day is a significant event in the easyfundraising calendar. Occurring four times a year, on Donation Day we pass on all the donations that are ready to be paid to our good causes. To provide clarity on the process, we’ve created a guide to help you understand the distribution of donations to your designated payment method. Accessible through your Cause Transaction Summary page, it presents four payment summary totals:Total raisedPaid to your causeAvailable for paymentNot ready for payment Total raised This shows the total amount raised for the cause through brand donations, referrals, incentives, and competition prizes. FAQ: Why has the Total Raised amount gone down? Paid to your cause This is the total amount that has been paid to your cause so far. To see a breakdown of what has been paid and when, you can view your cause statements. Each donation day a statement is published for your cause that will show how much is being paid, which donations have been included in that payment and how they are being paid to your cause. Available for payment This is the total sum of confirmed donations that easyfundraising has received, and is set to be given to you on the upcoming Donation Day, provided the total reaches at least £15. If your confirmed and paid donations are below £15, that money will be kept in Available for Payment until it reaches or surpasses the minimum limit. Once it hits £15 or more, we'll transfer it to you on the next Donation Day. To process your payment, we need you to share your payment details with us. If you haven't done so already, please provide them here. Not ready for payment This is the total sum of donations that easyfundraising has yet to receive from the brands your cause supporters shopped with. This also includes cause referral donations. This total can be subject to change because in certain circumstances, donations amounts can be declined or changed if they don’t meet brand terms and conditions. FAQ: Why are some donations not ready for payment? Cut-off Period Two weeks before each donation day, we implement a donation cut-off. This allows our team to process all the donations that have come through and ensure everything goes smoothly. If you earned a donation after this cut-off date, then it will not be Available for payment until the following Donation Day. Below is a table of each coming Donation Day and the planned dates that they cover.
