Reimbursement Process

Crypto for the Homeless | Reimbursement Process Model

Today, we’ll look at a common process: reimbursement.


We discussed how the donation process works last week, but how do volunteers get compensated for their selfless service?

The interaction between a Volunteer and the Crypto for the Homeless organization during the reimbursement process is depicted in the process model below.

Process Model showing activities and interactions between a Volunteer and the CFTHL entity during reimbursements.

A sample interaction between a Volunteer and CFTHL is as follows:

  • A volunteer gives selflessly by purchasing food or goods for the homeless/needy and hand-delivering such items to individuals in need.
  • The volunteer visits the CFTHL website; CFTHL displays the website.
  • The volunteer completes their volunteer form and uploads needed items.
    • The form will contain photos of their excursion, as well as photos of the purchased things that were hand-delivered (together with the Crypto for the Homeless flyer) and their selected refund currency. (Crypto for the Homeless compensates volunteers in the majority of the accessible cryptocurrencies!)
  • The volunteer finalizes and submits their form; CFTHL receives a form submission notification.
  • The CFTHL team will check the volunteer-provided footage for accuracy and criteria before approving the form.
  • CFTHL examines the volunteers’ proposed reimbursement currency and processes it by deducting monies from the donation budget.
  • The volunteer receives their compensation, and CFTHL publically notes the deduction in The Books1, under the section named: spending.
  • The reimbursement procedure is finished once CFTHL generates a showcase post.

The goal of this post was to show how the reimbursement process works through the use of business process diagrams, in order to help our readers understand what the reimbursement process is like.


Whenever a volunteer decides to perform selfless service on behalf of Crypto for the Homeless, the volunteer will purchase supplies or food for members of the community who are in need. The volunteer will deliver the supplies in person and document their experience. With these proofs, CFTHL can reimburse the volunteer in the volunteer’s preferred currency once the request is made. After the volunteer receives their funds, the amount reimbursed from the donation budget is deducted and recorded in the organization’s public books.
