How does my charity enrol with PayPal Giving Fund Ireland? (Charities)

Any registered charity in Ireland with a confirmed charity PayPal account is eligible to enrol with PayPal Giving Fund, subject to meeting our requirements.

How to enrol in three steps: 

  1. To enrol with PayPal Giving Fund, your charity needs to have a PayPal Business account. If you don't have one, you can sign up now
  2. Once you've set up your PayPal Business account, you'll need to confirm that your PayPal account belongs to a charity. Becoming a confirmed charity with PayPal also allows you to qualify for PayPal's special discounted charity rate
  3. After you receive an email verifying that your charity status has been confirmed with PayPal, your charity will be reviewed for enrolment with PayPal Giving Fund. If you are eligible, you will receive an additional email within 2 business days to confirm your successful enrolment with PayPal Giving Fund.
Once enrolled, your charity will be able to benefit from all the donation programmes powered by PayPal Giving Fund. Charities that do not want PayPal Giving Fund to accept donations to benefit them may request to be removed from our platforms at any time.
Why do I need to confirm my charity’s PayPal account to become enrolled in PayPal Giving Fund Ireland?
Confirming your charity’s PayPal account helps us ensure that the account belongs to your charity and that we can make payments quickly, securely and cost-effectively for both parties.

You'll receive a confirmation email from PayPal to confirm your charity status and a welcome email from PayPal Giving Fund if your charity was deemed eligible for enrolment.
