How the Donation Works

If you wish to use a credit card, once on the PayPal site click the link "Don't have a PayPal account?", which will take you to a credit card form. A PayPal account is not required.

For your security, this website and the PSF do not acquire or retain any of your credit card data. It is all handled by PayPal.

Following the transaction, you will receive both a PayPal receipt and/or our formal acknowledgment of your tax-deductible (USA) donation.

Please whitelist psfmember.org and check your spam bins if you don't receive the acknowledgment from the PSF.

We appreciate a minimum donation of $20.
