We are pleased to announce that we have joined the PayPal Giving Fund, allowing our supporters to easily make donations through Facebook. The PayPal Giving Fund also gives our supporters the ability to use Facebook to set up their own fundraisers in support of CLCRF or any other charity of their choice.
This new service allows for secure online donations and there are no fees for organisations or individual donors, meaning 100% of the funds are distributed directly to the intended charity or not-for-profit organisation.
Innovations like this are important to help not-for-profit organisations survive in our increasingly cashless and mobile society.
“The way Australians are supporting their chosen charities is changing.” Says Elaine Herlihy, Director of the PayPal Giving Fund in Australia. “Charities in Australia need to embrace the opportunity that digital and online donations present.”
CLCRF supports PayPal and Facebook’s commitment to enable greater charitable giving and we are happy to be able to give our supporters an easily-accessible and uncomplicated way to fundraise.
If you would like to use the PayPal Giving Fund to raise funds for important research into childhood cancers, it’s very easy to do so. Simply click on the “create” button on the top of your Facebook page, then select the “Fundraiser” option. When asked what charity to donate to, simply search “Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation” and you will see our account!
