Candid makes it easier for nonprofits to accept donations with Apple Pay

Written on Oct 28, 2022

It just got easier for nonprofits to accept donations on GivingTuesday–and beyond. Last year, GivingTuesday raised $2.7 billion, and 2022 could bring in even more. In time for this year's GivingTuesday on Nov. 29, nonprofits that have earned a Candid Seal of Transparency will also become eligible to enable and accept donations with Apple Pay, providing donors with an easy, secure and private way to give to nonprofits. 

Earning a Candid Seal of Transparency is free and gives funders insight into a nonprofit organization, helping donors make educated grant-giving decisions. The Candid Seal of Transparency also grants nonprofit access to additional benefits such as appearing on 200+ charitable sites. To earn a Candid Seal of Transparency, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization can log on Candid's GuideStar to share up-to-date required information. Once a nonprofit receives their Candid Seal of Transparency, they can reach out to their donation platform to start the set-up process. 

Apple Pay also leverages the security features built into all Apple devices, so every transaction is designed to be secure. By integrating Apple Pay into payment platforms, nonprofits make it easy for donors to set up recurring donations, pledges, in memory of, and gift donations.
