Giving Tuesday: PayPal to Match Donations…Is Your Charity Registered?

PayPal is once again match-funding donations made on Giving Tuesday, which takes place on 27th November, up to a maximum of £50,000. This will apply to donations made via the PayPal fundraising page and the PayPal App to any of the 150,000 charities listed in the PayPal Giving Fund directory.

This is not an opportunity to be missed…if your charity isn’t yet enrolled, there is still time to apply to register with the PayPal Giving Fund, which helps people support their favourite charities online and helps charities raise funds through PayPal, eBay and other technology platforms.

The idea and process is simple:

  • Charities enrol
  • Supporters choose to donate on PayPal, eBay and other online platforms
  • PayPal receives donations and provide receipts to donors
  • PayPal grants the funds it receives to charities without charging for its services

PayPal doesn’t charge charities for a fee for the service as operating costs are covered by its partners. It provides donation and donor reports, issues receipts and will makes grants to charities every month. Enrolling with PayPal puts your charity in front of a UK audience of millions. You just need a PayPal account with confirmed charity status to enrol. Log in to your account and fill out the form here.
