Supporting Charities

Searching For Charities

Catapultian currently supports searching organizations based upon name or EIN (Employer Identification Number).

You may search from any page by using the search box in the top left corner.

In addition, you may search for organizations in the box at the top of the page on the search results page.

Many charities have very similar names and multiple chapters throughout the country. We recommend determining the EIN of the organization if the naming convention is confusing.

Viewing Charity Profile

Clicking the name of any organization within search results will pull-up the profile for that organization.

One-time Allocation

To send funds to an organization one-time, click either the associated “Donate” on the search results page or the “Donate” button on the organization’s profile page.

This button brings up a modal window. The head of this box specifies the type of transaction you are completing and the name of the organization.

To complete this transaction enter the amount you would like to send (this value must be less than or equal to the amount in your account), enter your optional message to be sent to the organization, and click “Send funds.”

Recurring Allocation

To send funds to an organization one-time, click either the associated “Monthly Send” on the search results page or the “Monthly Send” button on the organization’s profile page.

This button brings up a modal window. The head of this box specifies the type of transaction you are completing and the name of the organization.

To complete this transaction enter the amount you would like to send (this value must be less than or equal to the amount in your account), and click “Send funds.”

When setting-up recurring donations, funds are sent immediately from your account to the organization. Future donations will be made on the same day of the month, each subsequent month. If there are inadequate funds in your account at the time of a future donation to the organization, your recurring donation will be paused.

We generally recommend setting-up recurring deposits to your Catapultian Account ahead of setting-up recurring donations to an organization.

You may pause or cancel any recurring donation to any organization at any time. To do this, navigate to “Auto Activity” via the dropdown menu in the top left corner of your dashboard.

Clicking “pause” in this window will pause future donations. Clicking the “Activate” button will re-activate paused donations.

Messaging the nonprofit is not supported with recurring donations.

Receiving Messages

If a charity you have supported sends you a thank you letter, you will receive an email with the associated letter.

We also store this messages in your dashboard, and you may access them by navigating to the “Messages” page.

Please note that you will not receive a receipt from the organizations you support, as Catapultian Foundation will issue a receipt for the donation upon deposit of the funds into your account.
