Donate using Paypal - How it works

GATEWAVE accepts credit card donations via Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account to make a credit card donation.

To make a donation, in the box at the right, simply enter the donation amount and click the DONATE NOW button. This takes you directly to Paypal.

When you donate with a credit card, your card number, and all other required information, is entered on a secure, encrypted web page at NOT at

At no time does GATEWAVE know your credit card number.

We use Paypal because they offer an inexpensive means of accepting and processing credit cards.

If you have a Paypal account, then you can log into it directly and make a donation from your account without entering a credit card number at all.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. The minimum donation is $5. Our Federal Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is 27-1502095.


The Process

The initial Paypal web page asks you to enter your donation amount and click Update Total.

The information you just entered is re-displayed on another web page for confirmation. If everything was entered correctly, just click the orange button to donate to GATEWAVE.

After approving the transaction, Paypal will email you a receipt. In addition, Paypal can, if you want, generate a printable receipt. The transaction will appear on your credit card bill as "Gatewave, Inc."
