How it works

Donate using Paypal - How it works

Young Israel of Ottawa accepts credit card donations via Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account to make a credit card donation.

To make a donation, in the box at the right, simply enter the donation amount and click the DONATE NOW button. This takes you directly to Paypal.

When you donate with a credit card, your card number, and all other required information, is entered on a secure web page at

We use Paypal because they offer an inexpensive means of accepting and processing credit cards.

If you have a Paypal account, then you can log into it directly and make a donation from your account without entering a credit card number at all.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. The minimum donation is $5.


The Process

The initial Paypal web page asks you to enter your donation amount and click Update Total.

The information you just entered is re-displayed on another web page for confirmation. If everything was entered correctly, just click the orange button to donate to the Young Israel of Ottawa.

After approving the transaction, Paypal will email you a receipt.  The transaction will appear on your credit card bill as "Young Israel Donation."  We will mail you a receipt for tax purposes.
