Frequently Asked Questions
Why did we receive a check?
You may be visiting this site because your organization received a check or other payment from Benevity. This was made possible by employees or customer’s of Benevity’s corporate clients donating to your cause using Benevity’s online Goodness platform. The funds were then disbursed to you through the American Online Giving Foundation and may include one or more individual donations as well as matching funds and corporate grants from one or more Benevity clients.

The AOGF utilizes Benevity’s online donation platform to aggregate and disburse charitable donations to eligible organizations and issues tax receipts, reducing some of the administrative costs that may be associated with receiving funds from corporate workplace giving, matching and volunteering programs. By creating a rich profile on the Benevity Causes Portal, your organization can also gain access to additional donors, share your impact stories, create volunteering or other projects, and more.
