After a few weeks, eBay’s partner PayPal Giving Fund will collect your donation via your automatic payment method, or you will receive an invoice to pay your donations. We will then receive your donation. As a bonus, eBay will also discount your Final Value Fees equal to the percentage you donated.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving also referred to as Give As You Earn, offers a simple, hassle-free, and tax-efficient method for making regular donations, enabling you to give more while spending less.

Check with your employer to determine if they offer Payroll Giving. If they do, they will handle the process of deducting your donation from your salary.

If your employer does not currently offer Payroll Giving, you can encourage them to set one up. Contact us for more information.
