Monetary Donations

Monetary contributions make a significant impact on our organization’s day to day operations. We make it easy and painless for everyone to support South West Florida Horse Rescue.


Make note that most institutions charge fees for donations.  Some offer you an option to absorb the fees yourself so we do not.  Other have no options to do that.  Finally, there are currently only 2 locations that offer 0% fees for donations and they are 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.  The transaction fees are covered by PayPal.
** Make note that any other form of transactions via PayPal will take out a fee for your donation. This will not affect you but it will affect what we really receive.


Facebook now offers donations with no processing fee for charities.  In the upper right of our Facebook home page is the Donate button.
** 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 made to non-profits via Network For Good.

American Express works with American Express offering another avenue to donate to charities. You don’t need an Amex card to use this site however if you do have one you can transfer your points as a cash donation to us.  For a 5% fee donations can be made to SWFHR.
