How does it work?

Community Partners refer candidates from their community that need immediate financial aid
Goodsend makes contact with individual candidates, to gather more details on their requests for direct financial aid
Post and Notify
Goodsend creates a direct giving fund for the partner, as well as posts their individual candidate's requests for funds on its platform, and notifies community of donors to chip in and help
Send Funds
Goodsend sends one-time and recurring donations from their community donors directly to the partner's candidate or emergency fund, for disbursement to their candidates
Goodsend follows up with the Community Partner and recipient to ensure that they received their funds. Additionally, Goodsend asks for an optional testimonial that can be shared with the network of donors who helped.
