In some cases, supporters will have a donation to Beam that’s not allocated to any campaigns. These cases could include:
You’ve received a Beam Gift Card which you haven’t applied to any campaigns.
A person you supported has withdrawn from Beam and you haven’t contacted us about reallocating the donation.
In these instances, Beam may wait to allocate your donation to a campaign to ensure it has the largest impact possible. Some examples include:
We have a waiting list of people wanting to launch campaigns on Beam and need to increase donation volume.
Someone has a campaign which totals above the average and needs extra support funding it.
All donations are only ever spent on campaign-related expenses. After a donation has been allocated, you will receive updates from the person. Alternatively, you can allocate your donation at any time by emailing us.
