PayPal Sets Up Disaster Relief Fund for Hurricane Harvey Victims

August 28, 2017, Written By Natalie Rutledge

With Hurricane Harvey in full force, organizations across the country are rallying together to support flood victims. PayPal set up a disaster relief fund to help families affected by the storm.

Anyone can donate to the fund, and 100% of the money goes to disaster victims. PayPal is waiving all processing fees to ensure the charitable donations go completely to storm relief efforts.

PayPal has preset donation amounts of $25, $55, $75, $100, and $150, but donors can also choose a custom amount. After the amount is set, PayPal brings up a prompt for payment method. Donors can choose to use their PayPal balances, a bank account on file, or a debit or credit card.

PayPal’s disaster relief efforts have previously helped victims of Typhoon Haiyan, Hurricane Matthew, Superstorm Sandy, and other major storms.

Any funds donated by a PayPal employee will be matched by company through the PayPal Gives program. Dan Schulman, President and CEO of PayPal, said “The need for aid will be vast and recovery will be long. Together we can make a difference in partnership with agencies that are providing relief on the ground.”
