Methods of monetary donations
VIA THE INTERNET
Note that most institutions charge fees for donations. Some offer you an option to absorb the costs, so the charity does not. Others have no options to do that. Finally, there are currently only 2 locations that offer 0% fees for donations: PayPal Giving Fund (PPG) and Facebook donations.
PAYPAL GIVING FUND
PayPal offers a program called the PayPal Giving Fund (PPGF) which does not take any percentage away from your donation. That’s right, the full amount of your donation makes it to us. PayPal covers the transaction fees.
** Make note that any other form of transaction via PayPal will take out a fee for your donation. This will not affect you, but it will affect what we receive.
Facebook now offers donations with no processing fee for charities.
** Donations made on Facebook to SWFHR, as of late 2017, are no longer charged fees. Since we are a verified charity and registered with Facebook, all donations are ACH/direct deposited to our Bank about every 2 weeks. Facebook had been charging a percent transaction fee on donations to non-profits via Network For Good.
