For all donations made via PayPal Giving Fund (PPGF):
- Donations will be made to PayPal Giving Fund, a 501(c)(3) charity, and are subject to PayPal Giving Fund’s policies and terms of service for donors.
- Donations are subject to CrowdRise platform fees and PPGF payment processing fees, and PayPal Giving Fund makes grants to benefitting charities net of those fees.
- The charity you recommend will typically receive the funds within 15-45 days of your original donation, or typically within around 90 days if the charity has not enrolled with PayPal Giving Fund.
- This doesn’t happen often, but if, after reasonable efforts, PayPal Giving Fund cannot deliver donations to the charity you recommend, it will whenever possible seek a new recommendation from you, and if no recommendation is given, will reassign the funds to another charity, which has been vetted by PayPal Giving Fund.
PPGF ensures all charities have met the eligibility requirements in the Nonprofit Certification Policy before including them in their programs. You can learn more about how PPGF grants funds to enrolled and unenrolled charities by reviewing the Donation Delivery Policy.
