When and how will my charity get paid? (Charities)
PayPal Giving Fund Ireland grants donations to charities that have completed our enrollment process at the end of each month, by depositing a single payment into each charity’s PayPal account.
Donations received from the 16th of the previous month up to the 15th of the current month are distributed at the end of the current month. We accumulate funds over the month to help reduce charities’ donation administrative costs. This also means we can account for any donor-reclaimed refunds and eliminates the need for charities to manage refunds or chargebacks directly with the donors.
If a donation has been made to benefit a charity not currently enrolled, we'll invite the charity to enrol with us. This will enable the charity to receive funds quickly and securely, to review donor details (where these are shared), to make additional information about the charity available to supporters, and to participate in additional PayPal Giving Fund programmes.
If your charity doesn't wish to enrol, we endeavour to deliver the grant funds by other appropriate means, in accordance with the PayPal Giving Fund Donation Delivery Policy. Please see our FAQ Why has my charity received a cheque from PayPal Giving Fund? for more information.
Please note: The Charitable Donation Scheme allows tax relief on qualifying donations made to approved bodies. If an individual donates €250 EUR or more in a year, the approved body can claim a refund of tax paid on that donation. There's a four-year time limit for making a claim under this scheme.
