What's the difference between donations made through the PayPal donate button and PayPal Giving Fund?

Charities with a PayPal account can place donate buttons on their own websites to collect donations through digital payment methods. Those donations go directly into their PayPal accounts, and are subject to PayPal's payment processing fees. 

Charities enrolled in PayPal Giving Fund can direct donors to their PayPal Giving Fund donation page or pages hosted by our partners. PayPal Giving Fund donations are then granted to charities in an aggregated monthly payout. PayPal Giving Fund does not charge any fees on these donations. In some cases, our partners may choose to charge fees on donations made through their platforms, which they will disclose to you on their websites.
