Having worked for four years out here in SoCal and being able to accept donations via check for my activities, I frequently have been asked about accepting online donations. For years (despite my best efforts), I have tried getting a PayPal account set up and haven’t been able to (although that’s another story). Finally, it is now set up and works!
So, I can accept donations online (in addition to accepting donations in check-form) which are tax-deductible, which makes it a whole lot easier for people to perform the mitzah of tzedakah and to support my classes, activities, etc. For instance, you can click here to make a tax-deductible donation via PayPal to support the great activities I do. Of course, you can make donations through the SoCalJSS and SoCalJYAE pages, as well 🙂
