Community Investment - Benevity Grants

Accessibility
  • We’ve made improvements to our product to reach a WCAG AA 2.1 compliance score of over 95%, so that we create a truly inclusive solution where all users are able to participate with the same great experience.
Payment Workflow Improvements 
  • A number of improvements in the payments area have been made with efficiency in mind, specifically for manual payments being made via accounts payable and when making in-kind donations. This includes re-positioning of the vendor number field, re-labelling of fields to provide more detail, defaulting of field selections where applicable, and removal of unnecessary views to make it more efficient to complete your payment. 
Left-to-Right Language support in application forms
  • Improvements have been made to allow a wider set of languages to be configured in our application forms. A form can now be set up in any language that reads from left-to-right.
Cause Relationship Notes 
  • We’ve created the ability to add long-lasting notes on a cause that can be referred back to as a cause makes future requests. A new area of the cause tab where users are able to create notes that will remain tied to the cause, and will be conveniently located for review next time the cause applies.

Finance & Foundations

AOGF Is Changing Banking Partners

  • Benevity’s foundation partner American Online Giving Foundation (AOGF) is changing banking providers to Citibank the week of June 20, 2022. This change will help us deliver funds to nonprofits even more efficiently. You will receive AOGF’s new banking details around June 20. Please be aware that going forward, Benevity will not be accepting checks for Donation Report payments. More of Benevity’s foundation partners will be changing to Citibank this year, so stay tuned!

We have created an Issues & Awareness campaign kit that works at any time of year, and it is available now. The resources include, a giving opportunity and news item, cause recommendation lists and images sized for Spark.
