Money Flow & Fees

Money Flow & Fees

Give Lively’s platform facilitates the flow of funds raised between donors and the nonprofits they support. Critical to the process is Stripe, an independent service we use to process donations and then disburse them to nonprofit bank accounts. See how to get fully set up in Stripe and ensure that money donated through our platform moves as quickly, seamlessly and inexpensively as possible.
