Since the beginning of the crisis in Ukraine, PayPal and our charity partners have helped raise over US$250 million for organisations supporting relief efforts in Ukraine. This significant support by global communities is one of the largest efforts we’ve seen, and humanitarian support efforts only continue to grow and expand.   

PayPal provides customers many ways to support:

Send Money Directly to Recipients in Ukraine 

PayPal and Xoom customers in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and much of Europe can send money to support family and loved ones in Ukraine affected by the crisis. From the PayPal and Xoom app or on, customers can send money for cash pick-up, typically in minutes, to thousands of locations across Ukraine, or refill prepaid mobile phone plans so family and loved ones can continue to stay in touch during this critical time.  

Support Relief Efforts  

Visit PayPal’s fundraising campaign to donate to support international relief charities focused on providing both humanitarian aid within Ukraine, as well as refugee support. Featured charities include the International Rescue Committee (IRC), UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Direct Relief, Save the Children, and more. 

The campaign is available to customers in the U.S., Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Ireland, Italy, U.K., and we are actively evaluating how to further expand this effort.  


Give at Checkout 

Every dollar counts. Show your support with a £1 donation to charity when you check out with PayPal while shopping online. 

You can also set your favourite charity in your PayPal Account Overview or in-app, to ensure you have the option to support them anytime you shop with PayPal. Alternatively, PayPal will suggest a relevant charity for you.

Give In the PayPal App  

From the PayPal app or on your browser you can support thousands of charities with PayPal Giving Fund, without any deductions or transaction fees. Giving is centralized in the app, located in the Payments hub. 

PayPal will continue to do our part to provide relief to those who are impacted by the tragic events occurring in Ukraine.
