Thank you again for taking the time to contact PayPal. Based on our conversation, I wanted to send you some additional information that you may find helpful.
You must have a PayPal Business account to accept donations for your nonprofit organization.
When you sign up for a Business account, you choose a payment solution. Most nonprofits choose PayPal Payments Standard or Express Checkout as their payment solution. These solutions let your donors complete their transactions on the PayPal website.
If your organization generates more than $100,000 in annual income and you're interested in other PayPal payment solutions, call 866-365-6319.
Here's how to open a Business account for your nonprofit:
Go to http://www.paypal.com/
and click Sign Up at the top of the page.
Choose a Business Account and click Continue.
Choose your business solution and complete the basic signup flow.
Select Nonprofit organization when choosing your Business type.
After you have created your account, add a bank account registered in the name of your nonprofit organization. Here's how:
Log in to the PayPal account you have just created.
Click Wallet near the top of the page.

We'll also ask for some information to confirm your organization's status as a nonprofit. We'll ask you to send us:
A description of your organization or a copy of your mission statement.
A voided check that shows the name of your organization or a bank statement that your organization received in the mail within the last 6 months. We do not accept starter checks.
A document that confirms your status as a nonprofit organization.
