Why PayPal and Venmo are better on GiveCampus

GiveCampus is the only educational fundraising platform that has a direct partnership with PayPal, the parent company for Venmo—so our integration is truly seamless.

Donors enjoy a consistent giving experience

PayPal and Venmo donors give through your social fundraising campaigns and giving forms—not through a separate process.

Your school name appears in Venmo feeds

Donors give to your school—not some third-party vendor. With GiveCampus, your school name always appears in Venmo feeds.

All gifts are processed and acknowledged the same way

Donors receive the same automated tax receipts and gift confirmations as with other gifts.

Funds are deposited directly into your school’s bank account

There’s no middle man—funds never pass through a third-party vendor account on their way to your institution.

All gifts appear in donation and deposit reports by default

You never have to download reports and reconcile gifts manually or try to match Venmo usernames to your donor database.

Why switch to GiveCampus?

Schools who partner with GiveCampus for online giving see an average uptick of 18% in funds raised.
