Created a Fund and now wondering when they will be sent? No worries! Donations made to Funds follow the same timeline as a normal donation you make on Bright Funds.

The timeline of donations to your Fund being sent to the nonprofit(s) in your Fund depend on the type of a donation a donor made.

For U.S.-based nonprofits in a Fund

Credit card/PayPal donations are sent the following month the donation is made. If someone donated to your Fund in January, their donation would sent to the nonprofit(s) in your Fund in February.

Matching donations, if offered, are sent two months after the initial donation.

For nonprofits based outside the U.S. in a Fund

Credit card/PayPal donation are sent the following month to our disbursement partner, who then works to disburse the donations to your nonprofit. If someone donated to your Fund in January, their donation would be sent to our disbursement partner in February, and to the nonprofit(s) in the weeks following.

Matching donations, if offered, are sent two months after the initial donation to our disbursement partner, who will then disburse to the nonprofit(s) in the weeks following.
