CharityCall LLC, a mobile web fund-raising solutions, announced an agreement to integrate PayPal’s latest mobile payment solution for nonprofit organizations into CharityCall’s mobileDonor mobile web application. PayPal’s payment solution is integrated directly into the mobileDonor application providing nonprofits with a simple way to raise funds via smartphones. CharityCall’s mobileDonor “cloud based” platform hosts a client-branded giving app on the mobile web at a universally accessible .mobi Web address to handle immediate gift transactions via PayPal’s secure mobile payments. Also, a donation “pledge” feature allows charitable donors without PayPal accounts to issue pledges which can be completed later from their home or office via credit card. “We are thrilled to be working more closely with PayPal to introduce the nonprofit world to fundraising on the mobile web.” said Bob Jones, CharityCall founder and president, “Using our unique platform, supporters can access a nonprofit’s convenient mobile URL from their smartphone and give any amount they choose. Our process breaks the $10 donation barrier of text2give. Funds are typically deposited with the nonprofit within 72 hours by PayPal. And, best of all, donors are identified for future engagement.”
