Why PayPal and Venmo on GiveCampus—and why now?

Donors have been asking for Venmo for years, but Venmo has been largely off-limits for school fundraising because it isn’t tailored for schools’ needs.

Now—for the first time—GiveCampus has partnered with PayPal (Venmo’s parent company) to build a direct integration with PayPal and Venmo that addresses all of these requirements.

PayPal and Venmo on GiveCampus
  • Donors give seamlessly through your school's social fundraising campaigns and giving forms—not through a separate process, away from the action
  • Donors are making a donation to your school—not a payment to an individual or a third party vendor they've never heard of
  • Donors receive the same automated tax receipts and gift confirmations as with other gifts—a straightforward, official gift confirmation process
  • 100% of funds are deposited into your school's bank account—not into a middleman account owned by a vendor or an individual
  • You get seamless reporting with the same level of detail as other gifts—no manual reporting and reconciliation, and no struggling to match Venmo usernames to other donor details
  • BONUS: PayPal and Venmo are bundled together in our pricing—and you can get access on the Social Fundraising Platform and Giving Forms for one inclusive price

The flexibility your donors want, the details you need.
