Givelify takes the safety and security of our users’ financial information very seriously. For that reason, an extensive account verification process is used to make sure that every member organization is 100% legitimate.

If you are in the process of signing up your church or place of worship for a Givelify donation app account, you may be wondering how this process will affect you. What information will you need to provide in order to get verified?  How long does that process take? Let’s take a look at the steps involved, and what you can do to speed things up.

Verifying Your Donation App Account

When you first sign up, you will receive an email containing an activation link. Click the link to activate your account, and then you can begin filling out your donation app profile. Most importantly, you can begin the process of adding your banking information.

On your computer, visit and log in to your organization’s account. Then follow these steps:

  1. Click on Settings at the top right of your screen
  2. Click on the Banking tab
  3. Enter your IRS-issued EIN or Tax ID
  4. Update the information.

At this point, our account verification team will look over the information provided. Within 1-2 business days When the verification process is complete, you will receive an email instructing you to add your checking account information.

The entire bank verification process can take up to 3 business days.
