If you're a brand-new fiscally sponsored project looking to set up direct deposit, or if you're an existing fiscally sponsored project trying to change direct deposit to a new checking account, you can download the EFT sign-up form for electronic funds transfer (EFT) here.
When you fill out the form, keep in mind that we will also require supplemental documentation from the bank that confirms the account and routing numbers as well as the account holder name and address. The best way to confirm this info is with a voided check. Please note that we cannot accept temporary or starter checks and that the check must include your account and routing numbers as well as confirmation of the account holder name and address.
Sample Check Showing Account, Banking, and Routing Numbers
If you don't have checks for your account you may also be able to send us a letter from your bank, direct deposit verification (which you can usually download from your bank's website), or a scan of your most recent account statement (with any personal financial information blacked out).
You can send the completed EFT sign-up form and voided check/account documentation via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also fax it to 212-277-8025. If you'd like to send a password-protected PDF, you can do so by using a service such as One Time Secret or Small PDF, or you can use password protection features in Preview or Adobe Acrobat. Note: The services mentioned are meant to show examples of PDF protection services that exist and are not endorsed by Fractured Atlas.
A Fractured Atlas staff member will be in touch by email to confirm once your bank account has been linked to your sponsored project's fund.
