Classmunity deposits the funds you raise through campaigns automatically into your District’s bank account(s). The Classmunity platform allows you to associate multiple bank accounts with your micro-site, providing you the flexibility to choose the appropriate account for each campaign. Therefore it is imperative that your District always has at least one active bank account in order to receive deposits.

Only faculty who have been granted the “edit financial info” permission are able to add, disable, or edit your district’s bank accounts. See Managing User Accounts within the Administrator’s Toolkit for more information. 

 Classmunity does not store or maintain any record of your bank account number on its servers. Your sensitive banking information is encrypted and stored by Stripe within its PCI compliant servers.

The number of associated bank accounts your district can set up is dependent on your subscription plan:

Plan: # of Bank Accounts:
Basic 1
Pro 3
Ultimate 10

Fund Transfer Schedule:

Credit card donations for your campaign are transferred on a rolling basis on the 1st and 15th of the month. You can view a list of all pending transfers as well as completed transfers on the “Fund Transfers” page within your District’s administrative panel.

How to Add a Bank Account:

In order for Classmunity to transfer funds to your District’s bank account(s), you must associate the account(s) with your District’s micro-site. Federal banking laws require that Classmunity verify the identity and ownership of the account(s) as well as an authorized account manager.

Classmunity utilizes the Stripe platform for verifying and storing banking and account manager information. Classmunity does not store bank account numbers on it’s servers, nor is it able to retrieve the numbers from Stripe. 

Typically, when Stripe fails to validate a bank account the reason can be traced to incorrectly entered information. If one of your District’s accounts fails to verify, a Classmunity support representative will contact you and help correct any problems.

To add a bank account to your District’s microsite:

  1. Navigate to the administration dashboard.
  2. Select “Edit Site” on the left hand side of the admin dashboard.
