Catalyser Partners with PayPal Giving Fund to reach more than 20,000 charities

Catalyser is proud to announce its exciting new partnership with PayPal Giving Fund, which expands its network of charities to more than 20,000.

This represents a significant milestone for Catalyser, as clients using its employee giving platform, including TPG Telecom, Energy Australia and Deloitte, can now choose to support any eligible charity with PayPal Giving Fund, making it the giving platform with the largest charity network in the Asia Pacific.

This partnership will not only help our clients achieve their corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals, but also aid the invaluable work of our charity partners,” said Catalyser co-founder and co-CEO Aivee Robinson. “Employee giving is most engaging when it can respond rapidly to local needs, so more choice gives companies more options and flexibility.

PayPal Giving Fund helps people discover and support their favourite charities online and can now receive donations through Catalyser’s platform, making grants to the donors' nominated charities. PayPal Giving Fund’s operating costs are covered by its partners and 100% of donations received by PayPal Giving Fund* go to Australian charities.

PayPal Giving Fund Executive Director Erica McLernon said the partnership was great news for eligible Australian charities.

PayPal Giving Fund is all about using technology to inspire a new wave of philanthropy, making giving part of everyday life and creating new sources of funding for Australian charities,” Ms McLernon said.

This partnership with Catalyser expands the number of charities that can benefit from employee giving in Australia and opens the door for countless new connections between donors and charities, each of which could inspire a lifetime of support.

Ms Robinson said the partnership with PayPal Giving Fund offers significant benefits for both Catalyser clients and the charities they support.

Employees of Catalyser clients will feel empowered knowing their donations are making the biggest possible impact, as charities receive 100% of donations received by PayPal Giving Fund*, making charitable giving even more appealing” she said.

Clients can leverage the same intuitive and advanced online management tools to run their CSR programs, but with a significantly broader range of beneficiaries and impact. We hope this will establish new sources of funding for charities that may have been overlooked by employee giving programs.

The partnership reduces the administrative burden on charities, as they can make the most of the Catalyser platform and do not need to source their own payment solution. Charities can also choose to receive donation and donor reports if they are enrolled with PayPal Giving Fund.
