How does PayPal Giving Fund work?

PayPal Giving Fund helps people support their favourite charities online through PayPal and Facebook. PayPal Giving Fund is a Public Ancillary Fund (ABN 65 106 950 945) and charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

PayPal Giving Fund uses PayPal technology and financial support to raise new funds for good causes without charging donors or charities for our services. We make giving secure, easy and reliable by:

  • Ensuring that donations reach the donor's recommended charity securely.
  • Confirming that participating charities are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), hold deductible gift recipient status and meet international standards restricting hate, violence and intolerance.

All eligible Australian charities are automatically listed in the PayPal Giving Fund directory. Eligible charities with verified PayPal business accounts can access the PayPal Giving Fund dashboard to see both donation details and donor information (where applicable) and update their profile information.

If you would like access to the PayPal Giving Fund dashboard, you can contact us to ensure you meet the eligibility requirements before you sign up for and verify a PayPal business account for your charity.
