How can my charity or nonprofit use PayPal to collect donations?
The PayPal donation button is a convenient and cost-effective solution for collecting donations online. To create a button, you define the donation amounts you want to accept; no programming is required.

When donors click your donation button, they complete their donation on the PayPal site. There are no monthly or set-up fees with donation button transactions. Your organization only pays processing fees when they receive a donation.
