Is there anything you’d like to know?

You’ve got questions. We’ve got the answers.

How is this different from other crowdfunding sites?
Stimulus focuses on capped donations ranging from $50-$750. We’re the only platform that focuses on direct and instant cash relief for basic needs. Stimulus’ recipients need rapid assistance with rent, groceries, small medical bills, and other day-to-day necessities.
How do we ensure this money goes to people who actually need it?
We work with local community organizations who help identify and refer the people most in need. Each campaign requires applicants to fill in a form, which is then carefully reviewed. This creates a robust vetting process that gives donors full confidence that their funds are going to those in need. We recommend that prospective donors review an individual in need’s story, and donate where you feel a connection.
How soon will the recipient receieve the funds?
Recipients will usually receive their funds within 5 – 10 working days, but it’s often sooner 🙂
How much of my donation will go to the recipient?
Unlike most donating platforms and charities, Stimulus takes $0 per direct donation. The only fee we charge comes out of the payment processor fee, which is currently in the range of 2.9% + $.30 per transaction. The rest will go directly to the recipients or campaign you selected.
When I make a donation, what happens next?
Bravo! We then distribute individual donations directly to the individual you have selected, while campaign donations are distributed to the community you have chosen to help on a first come, first served basis. It’s quick and efficient. We then forward any Thank You messages the receipient wants to send to you.
How does my donation get spent?
This is a common concern. But don’t worry, based on extensive research surrounding cash donations, people genuinely spend the money on groceries, rent relief, and medical bills etc.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
These are not tax-deductible donations and are considered gifts for tax purposes. Our platform takes $0 per direct donation and your willingness to tip our services upon checkout is how we pay for platform costs.
Do you have more questions?
