What happens next?

Once the donation is submitted, you'll see the gift with the status "Initiated" in your Donor Profile under Contributions. It can take anywhere from 2 days to multiple weeks to process the gift, depending on the DAF account provider involved. Once the institution releases the funds, the status of the donation will change to "Confirmed."
