After Givelify verifies your account, you will receive an email instructing you to add your bank account information. We require all churches and places of worship to provide a copy of a voided check. This is another security measure that ensures all donations are deposited into the correct bank account, and that the account belongs to your organization.
If you do not have checks for your checking account, please obtain a verification letter from your bank or provide the first page of your bank statement. The document must include your routing number, account number, and the name and address of your organization. The routing number and account number are usually listed at the bottom of your checks. Please note that we do not accept starter checks.
Once Givelify ensures that this information is correct, your account setup is complete.
Reasons Account Verification Might Fail
Your bank account verification could fail for one of the following reasons:
- Failing to provide an account that belongs to your organization
- Providing a copy of your personal bank account
- Providing a deposit slip instead of a voided check
- Providing a voided check or letter that does not include your organization’s information
Givelify will notify you if your bank account is unable to be processed.

Legal Representative/Principal Agent Information
Per Patriot Act regulations and the United States Department of the Treasury, federal law now requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
You must provide the name, address, date of birth, and social security number for one (1) individual with significant financial responsibility for managing the legal entity customer.
These persons include:
- Chief Executive Officer
- Chief Financial Officer
- Chief Operating Officer
- Senior Managing Member
- General Partner
- Vice President
- Senior Pastor
- Any other individual regularly performing similar functions
We may also require a copy of your driver’s license, passport, or other identifying document for the Legal Representative/Principal Agent.
