As Venmo has continued to grow and evolve over the years, we’ve seen the Venmo community come together in unique ways to send payments of goodwill and share random acts of kindness with people in their community and beyond. We have been continually inspired by how Venmo customers help one another, and support causes close to their hearts. Today, we’re introducing the ability to create charity profiles on Venmo, so that charities can now raise funds and receive donations directly from Venmo’s app.

By introducing charity profiles on Venmo, it will be easier than ever for charities to reach more people passionate about causes in their community, directly in the Venmo app. Charity profiles on Venmo offer charities seamless setup, low fees, and an easy charity verification process.

In the coming months, we will also launch a charity hub in the Venmo app, offering Venmo customers new ways to discover causes close to their hearts and easily contribute to those causes they care about directly within the Venmo app.
