EFT Contributions

Electric Funds Trasfer (EFT) is a secure way to deliver your gifts directly and automatically from your bank to the IMSA Fund. As with online giving, EFT donations allow us to minimize administrative expenses.

When you make an EFT gift, your bank disburses the funds automatically according to your instructions, and until you decide to stop. By making a small contribution every month, your annual contribution adds up to a significant and effective amount. Consider this one cup of coffee or a pizza a month!

To make your gifts via EFT, simply download, complete and return the EFT Authorization Form to the IMSA Fund. (We will need a voided, unused check for identification of bank and account numbers. If you fax or email this form, please send a voided check in the mail promptly.)

Either email to, fax to (630) 907-5940, or mail to:
