Frequesntly Asked Questions
How do I get my money?
Check requests and deposits are processed once a week. We need your requests or deposit items by 12pm on Monday to be processed by Thursday at 12pm that week. Anything submitted after 12pm on Monday will be put in the queue for the next weeks’ run.
I have a bunch of donations for my project, how do they get into my account?
Make sure they are made out to Springboard, with your project name in the memo, and send them to us! Or you can drop them off at our office if you’d prefer:
Springboard for the Arts
308 Prince Street, Suite 270
St. Paul MN, 55101
We cannot accept any checks that are not made out to Springboard. We can only disburse funds if they’re already in your account. This is another way of saying we can’t cut you a check for money we haven’t had a chance to deposit yet. Plan accordingly!
How much money do I have?
Once we are managing funds on your behalf, an account statement will be automatically generated and sent to the email address we have on file every Friday morning. This way you can keep track of your balance and when payments have been made.
