Why does my nonprofit need a PayPal Giving Fund profile to receive funds if we already have a PayPal account?

A PayPal Giving Fund profile is different from a PayPal account, and requires your PayPal account to be confirmed as an eligible charity. PayPal Giving Fund helps people support their favorite charities online and allows ShoppingGives to grant 100% of donations pledged for your organization on a consistent basis. If you already have a PayPal account for your organization it's even easier to enroll with PayPal Giving Fund. You can learn more about PayPal Giving Fund and enroll here.
