How are donations collected?

YouCaring does not collect your donations directly. All fundraiser donation transactions are processed and distributed by third-party payment processor accounts. These accounts are set up by fundraiser organizers or beneficiaries and tied directly to the YouCaring fundraiser. 

Please note, YouCaring does not have direct access to money raised from your fundraiser, nor do we have the ability to transfer funds between different payment processors or bank accounts. 

All donations you receive will be directly deposited into the WePay or PayPal account connected to your fundraiser. The amount of money disbursed will equal the amount you have raised, less payment processor fees.

If you select WePay as your payment processor, an account will automatically be created for you or your beneficiary. WePay will then send an email with instructions on how to activate your account, verify your personal information, and add your banking information.

If you select PayPal as your payment processor, you will have the option to enter your existing PayPal account information, or you can set up a new PayPal account.

Setting up a WePay or PayPal account only takes a couple of minutes and you can start receiving funds immediately.

Once your payment account has been set up you or your beneficiary can log into WePay or PayPal at any time to manage the donations and withdraw them to a bank account.
