PayPal is giving its customers new avenues for supporting the causes they care about. The company’s recently launched app adds new features to its Generosity Network. PayPal introduced the network in 2020 to offer customers a way to create customized fundraising campaigns for themselves or other individuals or small businesses in need. The new app builds on the existing features to provide more methods for customers to raise funds.
Now customers in the United States and the United Kingdom can use the new Generosity Network for Charity to fundraise for their favorite organization. Unlike the Generosity Network, where donated funds are sent to the customer’s PayPal account, donations will go directly to the PayPal Giving Fund, which in turn grants the funds to the respective organizations.
