Depositing Funds Into Your GTF Account
Once you have been accepted into the Transplant Fundraising Program, your GTF account is opened and is ready to be used. There are three different ways to deposit money into your GTF (matched or unmatched) account:
1. Blue envelopes from the client
Once your fundraising account is set up, you will be provided blue deposit envelopes for sending in funds. These blue envelopes are for TFP clients use only, not their contributors. GTF will not mail acknowledgement (thank you) letters to the contributors of the checks/money orders mailed in the blue envelopes because it will assume that the client has received the checks/money orders first and has already acknowledged the donor with a letter of thanks.
2. From a third-party mailing
Any money sent to GTF in your honor, by a third party, will be deposited in your GTF account. All checks should be made out to Georgia Transplant Foundation with the memo section noting: “In Honor of (your name).” Checks should be mailed to GTF, 500 Sugar Mill Road, Suite 170-A, Atlanta, GA 30350. GTF will send a letter of acknowledgment for the contributions that are received directly in the GTF office.
3. Personal GTF webpage
Once you have been accepted into the program, you will be given information on how to set up your personal GTF-based webpage. You will be able to direct friends and family to this page to make online credit card donations directly into your fundraising account. When online contributions are made, the contributor will receive an email acknowledgement letter. Please note that gifts made online by credit card will be subject to a minimum processing fee by the bank of 2.85% per transaction.
– Deposits can be made by check, money order, or credit card online. No cash will be accepted.
– GTF charges a 3% administrative fee for each deposit made to your GTF account.
It is your responsibility to inform the TFP program administrators of any change of contact information i.e. phone number, address, change of transplant center, etc.
