Livingtree Give has partnered with PayPal to facilitate an electronic and secure collection process of online donations and payments on our platform.  You must have an active PayPal account to be able to use this option.  

NOTE:  Currently, only PayPal Business accounts work with Livingtree Give.  Personal PayPal accounts do not currently work with Livingtree Give.

With the PayPal collection option, all inbound payments (IE - donations, etc) made to your LTG fundraisers are processed and immediately deposited to your PayPal Business account.  

This is done by "linking" your PayPal Business account to your Livingtree Give account. Click here to learn how.

Livingtree's robust reporting provides real-time recording of all processed payment details, including:

  • Name of fundraiser 

  • Payment date

  • Payment $ amount

  • "Payor" / Donor information 

  • Gross and Net of fee $ amounts (Click here for information on transaction fees)

  • District "Accounting Codes" to aide in reconciliation/distribution of donation funds (Enterprise and Enterprise "Lite" accounts only)
