How the Foundation Receives Donations from Facebook

As of October 31, 2023, Meta partners exclusively with PayPal Giving Fund for nonprofits in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. All donations are irrevocable gifts to PPGF and can only be refunded in certain circumstances as outlined by PayPal Giving Fund’s Donation Refund Policy or when required by law.

A donation made to PayPal Giving Fund to support a nonprofit through its Facebook Page or a fundraiser on Facebook may be tax-deductible. Since tax laws vary by country and region, you should consult a tax professional or review the laws for your area to determine whether a donation is tax-deductible.

After you make a donation, you will receive an official donation receipt from PayPal Giving Fund directly to your email. This receipt shows that you’ve made this donation as a charitable contribution and that you’re not receiving any goods or services in return.

Our efforts to raise awareness wouldn't be possible without the inspiration and enthusiasm of the SUDC community.
