Receive donations to benefit your charity
Enroll in PayPal Giving Fund to receive donations made to benefit your charity through programs with PayPal, eBay, GoFundMe and more.
PayPal Giving Fund is a grant-giving 501(c)(3) charity that makes online giving a part of everyday ecommerce activity. We do this by enabling donors to support their favorite charities across a number of platforms, including PayPal, eBay, and GoFundMe. PayPal Giving Fund collects the funds donated by users on these platforms. We then make a donation to the selected charity if they are enrolled in PayPal Giving Fund. If a charity is not enrolled, we will contact them to help them enroll and receive the donation.
See our Donation Delivery Policy here.
Through creating online connections between charities and donors, PayPal Giving Fund generates more than $35 million in donations each year for US and UK charities.
1Sign up your charity for a PayPal Business account if you haven’t already
We’ll use this account to pay you the funds we receive for your charity if and when you enroll. If your charity already has a PayPal Business account, you can go straight to Step 2.
2Confirm your PayPal Business account belongs to your charity
This process is how PayPal ensures your account belongs to your charity. Have your charity’s EIN number and bank statement handy to complete this process.
3Enroll with PayPal Giving Fund using your confirmed PayPal account
Enrolling will allow your charity to benefit from PayPal Giving Fund programs and receive any pending funds in accordance with our Donation Delivery Policy. Charities must meet eligibility requirements - we help you through the process.
