Go Paperless!

Did you know you have the option of receiving your invoices and statements exclusively by e-mail? Save paper, save energy, and give Cheryl in the finance department fewer papercuts!

Additionally, if you’re a FundRaiser client, you also have the option of receiving your funds and statements electronically, instead of by paper checks and snail-mail. You’ll even receive your payments faster, since you won’t have to wait for your check in the mail.

You can also pay bills by autopay, instead of sending us checks. This saves your time, a stamp and an envelope.
