Electronic Payment

The Community Foundation grant program recipients will receive grant payments only via an ACH (Automated Clearing House). Distributions and grants payments will be made directly to an account chosen by the grant recipient via an ACH (Automated Clearing House) transfer (fees associated for using this new electronic system are paid by The Foundation).

  • Organizations have found ACH has helped them save time with fewer trips to the bank and has eliminated the possibility of lost or stolen checks.

  • The Foundation has found this way of making grant distributions saves costs and improves security for both The Community Foundation and grantees.

Grant recipients must complete the ACH form and return by email to Brandi Kryvonis, Disbursement Manager.
