Our typical onboarding process is simple – just 4 phases, which typically take a total of 10-12 weeks to complete. (Please note that this completion time is just an average. As each client is unique and may use Fundriver differently, we discuss a personalized timeline during our Kick Off meeting, and make any necessary adjustments based on your organization's needs and resources.)
