3 Steps to Using PayPal to Collect HIKE Donations

The HIKE Fund, Inc. started using PayPal as a way to receive donations and accept credit and debit cards for sales about two years ago. Many nonprofit, charitable organizations want to maximize donations in easy and convenient ways. We are often asked how a Job’s Daughter member can use PayPal to track and receive donations given as a credit toward her own fundraising goals – to get into that excellent and brilliant group of young ladies in the $1,000 Club! So, here are three simple steps.

Step 1 – Ask your donor to use our direct link to PayPal

Step 2 – Have your donor enter the amount and select their method of donation – PayPal account, or with a debit or credit card. Perhaps they would consider making it a recurring monthly donation?  (They can cancel or change the recurring donation and amount anytime via their PayPal account.)

Step 3 – This is the Critical Step – Provide the name of the Job’s Daughter, the Bethel number, City and State to receive the donation credit in the space that says, “Add Special Instructions to the Seller.” 

Don’t forget this piece of information before filling out the payment confirmation details, and checking the box to share your mailing address with us so we can say “Thank you!”

As a follow-up, remind your donor to forward their confirmed payment email to you so you can add it to your tracking form.
