Associations and Non-Profits

Associations and Non-Profits

Alleviate the burden of payment disbursements

Associations and non-profits come in a variety of flavors — from professional associations and clubs, to charities and volunteer organizations, to unions. Managing on-site events and operations, often in multiple locations, with an ever-changing roster of participants that need to be paid accurately and on time can be enough to make your head spin. One thing is clear though, the money wasted on issuing paper checks cuts into funds that can be used elsewhere, toward achieving your organization’s mission.

Thank goodness you’re not dealing with paper checks, right? Or are you?

Issuing checks for payment comes with a lengthy list of challenges, including:

  • Reconciling uncashed checks

  • The high cost of issuing paper checks

  • Cash handling security issues

  • Out-of-cycle checks

  • Check fraud

  • Stop payment fees for lost/stolen checks

  • Unclaimed property and escheatment

  • Operational inefficiency

Rave reviews from our clients in associations and non-profits

RodeoPay has made it easier for our member rodeos to pay their contestants. With one click they can transfer money from the association bank account to the contestant’s bank account.”

— K. Bleakly, Pro Rodeo Cowboy Association

Before using Rapid, we spent a lot of time going to the bank, getting cash, and filling out reimbursement forms. Many payroll hours were spent sending MoneyGrams or Western Union to our clients out of state and taking cash to in-state clients many times during the week. Since we started using Rapid, we have been able to track expenses more accurately, found a reliable way to help with our client’s expenses (especially on weekends and after hours), and almost eliminated outside costs and fees to send money. Having a way to control cash has also been a huge advantage!

— Andrea Jenkins, Heart to Heart Adoptions, Sandy, UT

We have eliminated costs in two main areas. First, we no longer need to handle and re-mail checks from the rodeos to contestants. This has freed up staff time and eliminated repetitive mailing costs. Secondly, with the integration between Rapid and our systems, we have reduced our volume of credit card processing charges by having contestants use funds from within RodeoPay to pay their obligations.

The use of RodeoPay, as provided by Rapid Financial Solutions, has allowed us to streamline and modernize our payment processing. As a result, our members have access to their funds in a secure manner, days to weeks faster than our old process. Additionally, our partnership has allowed us to provide other value-added services to our membership.”

— Dan Martinez, Chief Information Officer, Pro Rodeo Cowboy Association
