Everything to Know About Being A Fundraiser Beneficiary

When you receive an invitation to be the beneficiary of a fundraiser, it means a person or group is attempting to raise money for you.That’s wonderful, isn’t it?

But you might also have some questions about how it all works. Let’s answer those questions right here…

Question 1: Does that mean the money goes straight to me?

Yes. As the beneficiary of a fundraiser, the money will be transferred directly to your bank account. This of course means you’ll need to set up your account for transfers within Give A Hand, but we make it as easy as possible.

Just make sure you meet all the requirements to receive funds:

  • A government-issued driver’s license, state I.D., or passport
  • A residential address within the country selected (this cannot be a PO box)
  • A phone number belonging to the country of residence
  • A bank account in your name located in your country
  • A United States SSN or ITIN  (or equivalent for other countries)
  • Must be 18 years of age or older

Question 2: Will my name be associated with the fundraiser?The short answer is yes, it will. This is for several reasons.

For starters, your name is required when setting up your account info for the purposes of transferring funds. And it’s also important for the sake of transparency. Here at Give A Hand, we aim to make the online crowdfunding process safe, easy, and totally transparent. So, it’s important that donors understand what and who they’re donating to. If this is an issue for any reason, please get in touch with our support team.

Question 3: Will I be able to interact with the fundraiser?

Yes, you’ll be able to do things like post updates, view comments and more.
