1) Click the Dwolla button above and sign up for a Dwolla "Personal" account. Write down your account ID, password, and PIN for your records.


2) After registering, click the"Funding Sources" tab, and then click the "Connect Account"button. Then add your bank account information. You will need your bank account and routing information, as well as your online banking sign-in information. 

*** At this point, Dwolla asks some people to wait a few days to confirm their bank account.Dwolla places two small deposits into your bank account which you need to track and come back to finish the process after a few days (similar to when you set up a Paypal account). This doesn't happen to everyone, it depends on your bank. If it doesn't happen to you, and Dwolla automatically accepts your bank account, then you can move to the final step. ***


3) Click the "Recurring Payments" tab, and then click on"Schedule Recurring Payment"and fill out the form to set up a monthly gift. In the "Send To" box, type "Chicagoland Immigrant Welcome Network" and our organization should pop up. Complete the form and you should be all set. Your monthly transaction will be processed automatically each month.
