Donate from Your Bank Account

One of the best ways to support All Aboard Washington is with recurring donations from your bank account. You may set this up securely. Once the transaction has been set up, it will repeat at the frequency you specify, and you may cancel at any time. Here are the twelve steps of what you'll need to do.

1. Go to the Support page on the AAWA website. Members should click the Log In and Donate button.


2. Log in to the AAWA membership system.


3. Click the Donate tab. Administrators, select your name from the Contact dropdown.


4. Enter the amount you wish to donate, and the donation frequency (monthly, quarterly, yearly). Based on the amount you enter, the system will recommend the payment type that costs AAWA the smallest fee. ACH bank transfers are generally much less expensive than credit cards. Once you select Bank Transfer, you should click the blue Select Bank button.


5. You will now be redirected to Plaid, the service AAWA uses to connect to your bank or credit union. Click the Continue button.


6. Select your bank or credit union, or type its name into the search box to find it.


7. Enter the username and password that you use to access your bank's website.


8. Most banks require you to verify your identity by answering a security question, or by entering a code sent to your mobile phone or email.


9. If required by your bank, enter the code you are sent. The code may come from Plaid rather than your bank.


10. On the Success screen, click the Continue button. You will be redirected back to the AAWA website.


11. Scroll down if needed, and select the bank account you wish to use.


12. Click the green Donate button. You will see a screen confirming your donation, which you can print for your records. You will also receive an email confirmation.
