Frequently asked questions.

How are the campaign funds accessed?

Start putting campaign donations to work right away. When a donation is complete, the money shows up in the campaign's PayPal account usually within a few minutes. Automatically transfer money to a campaign's linked bank account daily, or manually schedule transfers to move the money whenever it is convenient. The availability of funds from the campaign's bank account is then subject to bank policies.
