We’re committed to harnessing the power of our products and services to help nonprofits and other causes raise funds and provide new ways for people to give to the causes they care about — anytime, anywhere, and in any amount. In 2023, our customers around the world donated $19.8 billion donated by our customers around the world to nonprofits and causes in a single calendar year. This generosity demonstrates the strength of our global community, as well as the essential role our platform plays in times of need.

We create innovative giving solutions.

New generations are driving changes in charitable giving, and we are developing innovative tools to meet these evolving needs. In 2022, we introduced PayPal Rewards, which allows U.S. customers to earn and redeem points for cash back that can be used to donate to a cause of their choice. Expanding donation options within the PayPal app is one of the ways we helped customers raise over $342 million through the digital wallet in 2023. We also introduced Venmo Charity Profiles, giving people the ability to raise funds and receive donations directly through the Venmo app.

We help raise critical funds to support global relief efforts.

We are committed to supporting relief efforts worldwide. During times of crisis, we look to support our impacted customers with information, fee waivers, and financial support. We also leverage the PayPal Giving Platform to mobilize consumer support for responding nonprofits and other causes. In 2023, we facilitated aid for extraordinary events globally, including the Turkey-Syria earthquakes, Hurricane Otis in Mexico, and the fires in Maui, Hawaii, enabling $93 million in donations from consumers, supporting rapid response and relief efforts for several global events.

We partner to further our impact.

We continue to identify new ways to enable seamless donations to nonprofits and other causes. In the past year, we mobilized quickly to partner with and support more than 20 global humanitarian organizations supporting the relief efforts in Ukraine, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Rescue Committee, Save the Children, Doctors Without Borders, and UNICEF, among others. We partnered with Uber in support of the International Rescue Committee, which helped families displaced by the conflict in Ukraine.
