Frequently Asked Questions

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

How is this different from other crowdfunding sites?
Stimulus is a direct-donating platform, which means you have full control over who you donate to. We believe this is an amazing, more efficient way for people to give back and get vital funds to those in need.
How do we ensure this money goes to people who actually need it?
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.
How soon will the recipient receieve the funds?
If funded in full, within 24 hours. If pooled it will be based on available funds.
How much of my donation will go to the recipient?
Unlike most donating platforms and charities, Stimulus takes 0% platform fees. The only fees are from the payment processor and are generally 2.9% + $.30 per transaction. The rest will go directly to the recipient.
When I make a donation, what happens next?
Bravo! Funds will be distributed quickly and efficiently. If donating to a pool we will fund people as we hit the target amount. We then forward any Thank You messages we receive.
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?
We’d love to talk. Just drop us a line at hello@stimulus.app and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
