The recurring donation is the gift that keeps on giving—literally. So just because the need is no longer visible in the needs gallery and is no longer accepting new donations, donors who opted to have recurring payments will keep giving to your need even when it expires. Some people may wonder why someone would want to commit to this type of donation. Well, because they care! Having a dedicated fund that they can give in small increments spread out rather than in large lump sums is more agreeable to some donors and we want to oblige them. Of course, the donor has full control to cancel recurring payments in the future with no penalties or notice required, if necessary.
Warning: You need a PayPal account to sign up for recurring payments; this allows you to cancel payments, at a later date, if necessary. If you sign up for recurring payments as a “Guest”, you will have to contact PayPal Customer Service at 1-888-221-1161 to find out if the payment can be canceled.
