ACH Direct Debit Authorization Program

The Automated Clearing House program – or ACH – allows Optimist Clubs to pay their bills electronically. It’s an easy and efficient way for Clubs to handle their financial obligations to Optimist International. Best of all, the program is secure!

To initiate the ACH direct debit bill form of payment for a Club, Optimist International needs the following two items:

1. A completed "authorization agreement for direct debits" form. You must choose the agreement applicable to your Club:

US Dollar ACH Debit Authorization Agreement

Canadian Dollar Pre-authorized Payment Agreement

2. A voided check or bank draft (or copy) for the bank account from which you would like us to withdraw money (debit). Please do not use a deposit slip. Note: Only one bank account per Club can be assigned for ACH.

You can fax both the completed authorization agreement form and a voided check image to the attention of Maria Carson at (314) 371-6006.
