Enroll in PayPal Giving Fund to receive funds raised to benefit your charity through programs with PayPal, eBay, GoFundMe, Humble Bundle and more.
We’ll use this account to pay you the funds we receive for your charity once you enroll. If your charity already has a PayPal Business account, you can go straight to Step 2. Please note: as an authorized representative of your charity, you’ll need to provide your social security number and add your charity’s bank account.
PayPal uses this process to ensure your account belongs to your charity. Have your charity’s EIN and bank statement handy, and if requested, be ready to provide your official IRS tax documentation in order to verify your charitable status. The review can take up to three business days to complete, so please check your email or your account dashboard for any relevant notifications.
Enrolling will allow your charity to benefit from PayPal Giving Fund programs and receive any pending funds in accordance with our Donation Delivery Policy. Open the PayPal email confirming your charity status, then click on the link to enroll with PayPal Giving Fund, and fill out the enrollment form. That’s it!
PayPal Giving Fund is a grant-giving IRS-registered 501(c)(3) public charity (Federal Tax ID: 45-0931286) that makes online giving a part of everyday ecommerce activity. We do this by enabling donors to support their favorite causes across a number of platforms, including PayPal, eBay, GoFundMe and Humble Bundle. PayPal Giving Fund receives donations from users as charity of record on these platforms and provides the donation receipt to donors. We then grant the funds to donor-recommended charities. If charities are enrolled in PayPal Giving Fund, they typically receive funds in their PayPal accounts 15-45 days after PayPal Giving Fund's receipt of a donation. If a donor-recommended charity is not enrolled, we will contact them to help them enroll, so they can benefit from all our programs and receive donations efficiently and securely. Charities that choose not to enroll with PayPal Giving Fund will be additionally vetted and if eligible, will receive funds via other means, such as a check, which takes longer than grants made to enrolled charities - typically 90 days.
By creating online connections between charities and donors, PayPal Giving Fund generates tens of millions of dollars in donations each year for US and UK charities.
Enrolling with PayPal Giving Fund has no sign up or monthly costs.*
