Project Donor FAQ

 
How does the money get to the non-profit for the project that I choose to support?

Your donation is processed through PayPal and is sent electronically over secure servers directly to the non-profit’s PayPal account.

Will I receive a confirmation receipt?

Yes, you will have an immediate on-screen confirmation, and you will receive an automatic printable receipt by e-mail.

How do I know my donation went to the right project?

Your receipt will indicate both the name of the non-profit and the name of the project you selected.

What if I accidentally donated to the wrong NPO or would like to cancel my donation completely?

Catch Blue doesn’t receive or have access to any of your funds, because your donation goes directly to the non-profit. We suggest you contact the NPO directly.

How will my privacy be protected?

We take your privacy very seriously. We never sell any of your information and you retain control over the level of information shared on the site. Please see our Terms of Use & Privacy Policy for more details.

Do I have to register to donate on Catch Blue?

You can choose to donate without registering. However, we recommend completing the short registration process, in order for you to have easy access to your giving history and to make future donations even easier.

How much of my donation goes to the Non-Profit I’ve chosen to support?

Because each project has one or more sponsors who cover the processing fees and other costs, 100% of your donation amount goes to the NPO you choose!

Does it cost anything for the Non-Profit to use Catch Blue?

No, it is a free fundraising and project organizational tool for the non-profits.

What are the advantages of donating online?

Catch Blue provides a convenient, secure way to support your favorite non-profit. You can search quickly and easily by project name or project number. Catch Blue provides detailed information about each project, including photos. You can also view your Giving History, keeping track of your donations throughout the year. Online giving also provides a very efficient way for non-profits to process donations, eliminating much of the paperwork and time required to manually process checks and cash donations.

Can I donate over the phone?

Since Catch Blue is designed to process online donations only, we are not able to process donations made by phone.

What are my payment options?

Your donation is processed through PayPal, which links directly to the non-profit’s PayPal account. Catch Blue does not receive or have access to any of your funds.

Do I need a Pay Pal account to give through Catch Blue?

No, you are not required to have a Pay Pal account, although your transaction will still be processed through Pay Pal’s secure servers.

Is there a minimum donation amount?

The minimum donation amount is $20.

Is my donation 100% tax deductible?

Can I view my giving history?

Yes, registered users are able to view their giving history.
