The quickest way to connect your bank account so you can donate using E-check is through Plaid. If Plaid is unavailable with your bank, the next best alternative is connecting your account using micro deposits.
Please note: verifying your bank account using micro deposits will take 1-2 business days. Once complete you will be able to donate using an E-check
How do micro deposits work?
First we will ask you for your banking details. Then we’ll deposit two small amounts of money into your account. Then we will ask you to verify the amount of the two deposits. Once verified, you will be able to donate using E-check.
