Can I donate in other currency even though the donation options are in USD ($)?
Yes! You can donate in any currency. Paypal accepts every major currency and changes it into US Dollars before it reaches our bank account. So, if you want to donate 100 British Pounds, you would check online for the exchange rate, and donate $150.
We have listed donation amounts in USD simply because to list the amounts in every major currency would take up the whole page.
I don’t have a Paypal account, can I still donate through your website?
Yes! You do not need to have a Paypal account to donate online. All you need is a major credit card and you’re set to go. When you have selected the amount you want to donate (or clicked on ‘Other’ and entered the amount in USD you want to donate) and then clicked on ‘donate now,’ you will be taken to Paypal’s secure site where you will either be given the option to sign in to your Paypal account, or click Continue where it says “Don’t Have a Paypal Account?”
Do I need a Paypal account to set up monthly recurring donations?
Yes, to set up monthly automatic donations you need to have a Paypal account. Starting a Paypal account is easy. All you need is an email address and a credit card and within a few minutes you will be able to set up your monthly recurring donations.

Can I send a donation in any currency by cheque?
No, we can only accept donations by cheque in USD sent to our office in the United States, or in Indian Rupees sent to us in India.
