Once I’ve made my first gift, how can I make changes to my account (e.g. update my credit card number or billing address)?

Find your original confirmation email or receipt from Classy, scroll to the bottom, and click the Manage Your Donation button. Sign in. Navigate to your Recurring Donation, select Edit Donation, and update your credit card information and/or the billing address for your recurring donation. Click Save to update your donation information. Please contact IIBA if you need assistance.

When can I expect my credit card to be charged moving forward?

Your credit card will be charged each month on the same date as your first charge. For example, if you set up your monthly donation to start on July 2, 2020, your second monthly donation will be charged on August 2, 2020. If you want to change the day that you’re charged for your donation, please contact IIBA to update.

Will I receive verification of my donations for tax purposes?

Each month, you will receive a confirmation from Classy that your monthly donation has been charged. At the end of each calendar year, IIBA will send you an acknowledgement letter and round-up tax-receipt.

Can I set up my monthly donation through my donor-advised fund?

Yes, of course. Please contact your charitable giving account to set up and then email IIBA with the confirmed grant recommendation and recurring schedule details. IIBA will provide an acknowledgement and tax-receipt annually. Please note any changes to your recurring gift will have to be made with your charitable giving account.

 If my circumstances change and I need to stop giving, how can I do so?

Please let IIBA know if you’re in this position and we will help you cancel your recurring donation.
