While over 1.6 million PayPal customers across 193 markets donated to causes they care about, totaling over 2.1 million donations, the total number of customers participating this year went down over 2020 when 1.75 million contributed to causes. Still, on average, the donation amount per participating customer increased, resulting in a record contribution for 2021.

“We are inspired by the generosity of our global community of employees and customers, who came together again on GivingTuesday this year in record numbers to use the PayPal platform to support causes close to their hearts. We’re grateful to the members of our PayPal community for all they do to support those in need around the world.”

In addition, the GivingTuesday Data Commons estimates that 35 million adults participated on GivingTuesday 2021 in the US, resulting in a 6% increase over 2020. US donations totaled a whopping $2.7 billion representing a 9% increase compared to GivingTuesday 2020, and a 37% increase since 2019.

PayPal Customers Give All Year – Not Just on GivingTuesday

While PayPal is only one part of the big picture on GivingTuesday, the company plays a significant role throughout the year supporting more than 600,000 nonprofit organizations with fundraising through its platform. It is one of the largest digital donation platforms globally.

Since GivingTuesday began in 2012, PayPal and its more than 415 million consumers and merchants have participated in charitable campaigns across the globe, contributing to charitable efforts such as the GivingTuesday campaign.

Giving back on GivingTuesday and throughout the year with PayPal is easy and safe – and there are many ways to do it.
