If your group is not registered, any contributions intended for your group are apparently redirected to some other charity.
PayPal runs a philanthropic website, the “Giving Fund”, which has become a major player in online fund-raising, processing $7.3 billion in contributions last year.
The Giving Fund site lists over one million organizations that can receive gifts. Your favorite charity is probably listed among them.
But despite promises that 100 percent of donations go to the selected charities, the gifts are delivered only if the groups register accounts on both PayPal and the Giving Fund site, according to a federal class action lawsuit filed in Illinois on February 28, 2017.
