Donating safely online

DonorsChoose.org understands how important it is to keep your information safe and secure. When you make a donation on our site using a credit card, PayPal or Amazon Payments, information about your donation is transmitted using 128-Bit SSL (secure socket layer technology).

No method of transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, but this SSL encrypts all of your personal information, including your credit card number, name and address. 

We've also implemented a range of security practices, including measures such as tokenization, which removes sensitive data (like your card payment information) from our system when you make a donation.
