How to SetUp Recurring Payments

One of the best ways to take full control of your membership in and donations to Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis is to set up a user account in our database system, Kindful. The main reason for doing this is to set up recurring payments to pay your annual membership donation.


Note that recurring payments can only be used to PREPAY your annual membership–recurring payments made in 2018 go into the 2019 Grant Pool and are for 2019 membership.

Even if you don’t want to set up recurring payments there are other benefits to having a Kindful account. Once you have a Kindful user account, you can to log into Kindful and check your current membership status to determine if you are up-to-date and make a payment or pledge for the upcoming year. You can also see all your donations since joining Impact 100.

Recurring transactions can be set up for annually, quarterly, monthly, biweekly (twice a month), and weekly transactions. Determining the amount for a recurring transaction is as simple as selecting your membership level ($1000 for full; or $500, $334, or $250 for shared, plus any additional you wish to donate to the administrative and scholarship accounts), and dividing it by the number of transactions that would be made between the start date and December 31.

Once you have a user account set up, you can log into Kindful and can change the amount or cancel a recurring transaction at any time.

Setting up a Kindful account is not difficult:
