​What can I do if a check is written out to me personally?

If a donation check has been written out to you personally, you may endorse the back of the check and mail it in to the EFEPA. 

​Can I mail in a cash donation?

It is not a good idea to send cash in the mail. You may drop it off at the EFEPA office or deposit the cash into your checking account and send a personal check from your account. 

​Can I enter cash and/or checks online?

Yes, go to "Manage my page" and find the "Raise at least [goal amount]" check box on the left side-bar. Here you will see a tab to ENTER CASH/CHECKS.

​Not all of my donors are showing up in the honor roll, why?

As your donors make contributions, they have the option of whether or not they want to appear in the Honor Roll.
