Other Ways to Donate

PayPal Giving Fund

The PayPal Giving Fund (PPGF) is a "donor-advised fund".  That means that the PPGF is itself a 501(c)(3) tax-exampt charity.  You can donate to the PPGF and "recommend" to them that they donate the same amount of money to Together We Can Guatemala.  We receive the funds 15 to 45 days after you make the donation.

The advantages to donating to the PPGF are:

  • PPGF doesn't take a percentage!  We receive every penny you donate. (For example, if you donate through the PayPal button above, they charge us a little more than 2.2%, which is actually a very low fee.)

  • You receive a tax deduction (although officially your donation is to the PPGF, not to us).

The disadvantages to donating to the PPGF are:

  • It takes us longer to receive the donation.

  • You need to have or create a PayPal account.

  • PPGF reserves the right to donate those funds to another organization.  However, that rarely happens, and only if there is some valid reason they can't donate the money to us.

To donate to us through PPGF, click this button (it will take you to a page at www.paypal.com):

Are you over 70½ years old and have a non-Roth IRA?

Unfortunately, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 made it unlikely that most people will still be able to deduct donations on their tax returns.  However, if you are over 70½ years old and have a non-Roth IRA, there's a tax loophole available to you!  You can instruct the institution that has your IRA to donate all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) to a charity.  That donation reduces your income for the year, thus resulting in lower taxes than if you had donated the same money out of non-IRA funds.

If you would like to make that kind of donation to Together We Can Guatemala, most financial institutions are familiar with the process.  But if you have any questions or problems, please contact us at info@togetherwecanguatemala.org and we'll help set it up.
