More and more non-profits are recognizing the importance of a strong online presence, and that online donations will be a big part of their future fundraising success. In response to this, PayPal has released the PayPal Kit for Non-Profits to help non-profits get set up to accept donations via PayPal within 45 minutes.

The kit is so simple to use that it can be implemented by almost anyone with basic computer knowledge.

It’s a simple 3-step process:

• Create a PayPal account

• Create a PayPal Donate button

• Place the button on your website

The PayPal Donate button is a safe, easier way for people to donate money. Donors can trust that their donation is secure and that their financial information will not be exposed.

“Non-profits have found in the past that making PayPal available increases the amount of their donations and helps them find new donors among our 164 million account holders. The PayPal Kit for Non-Profits will help non-profits tap into the $2 billion in stored PayPal balances around the world,” said Glenn Lim, senior director of alliances at PayPal.
