This will sound really official because we know how important it is. CrowdRise processes donations through PayPal Giving Fund and WePay.You can choose which processor you want. Both payment partners are PCI Level 1 Compliant (that's the best) and offer industry-leading Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. WePay is based in Palo Alto, CA and processes transactions for over 250,000 merchants. PayPal Giving Fund is an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) public charity (Federal Tax ID: 45-0931286). In 2017 PayPal Giving Fund received more than $100m in donations from over 1 million donors, and made grants to more than 45,000 charities.
CrowdRise makes it incredibly fast and easy for your charity to receive its funds. When a donor makes a donation, the funds will be processed by the payment processor that you chose, either PayPal Giving Fund or WePay. Both are PCI Level 1, secure credit card processing services. WePay sends funds to charities in real time. PayPal Giving Fund will send your nonprofit a check within 90 days of the initial donation date and then around the 25th of every month thereafter. Your nonprofit can also enroll with PayPal Giving Fund to receive donations electronically once a month via your PayPal Business account.
