How much can I contribute to my Groundswell account?

When it comes to both contributing funds to your personal account and donating to charities, a minimum amount of $1 is required for each transaction. There’s no maximum limit, you can be as charitable as you like!

Keep in mind that if you’re part of a workplace match program, the program will come with a match limit. This means your employer will match your contributions up until a certain point. They will let you know what this limit is and we’ll remind you in the app.

 

What are recurring contributions?

Recurring contributions allow you to consistently fund your Groundswell account on a monthly basis. If match funds are available from your employer, these recurring contributions will be matched.

Setting up a recurring contribution is a great way to save money for future donations. Whether you’ve got an annual giving goal in mind, or something occurs, like a natural disaster or a social justice issue, and you’d like to meet the moment with a donation to charity, recurring contributions can help you get there.
