We’ve recently switched to PayPal as a donation platform due to lower fees associated with accepting online transactions. Please note that for each donation made online, PayPal will receive 2.2% plus $0.30.  

Is there any way to not have to pay this fee?

There is one way to avoid any fees being charged, and that is to donate through PayPal’s Giving Fund.  Our page on that site is available here, but note that you must have a PayPal account to utilize this option.

Does this fee change the amount I can deduct on my taxes?
Whether you choose to add the processing fee or have it taken out of the total, the total amount is tax-deductible.

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organization selected by customer.

Is there any cost to charitable organizations or to customers?

No. There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers.

Of course, we also gladly accept donations in person or by mail at our headquarters:
