I would like to read the instructions before making a dontion through PayPal.
PayPal Instructions and Information:

Through lower transaction fees, PayPal allows more of your donation to go towards helping the program or ministry of your choice.

PayPal Security
We use a secure connection between our site and PayPal. PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Socket Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available).

Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.

For most donations, a PayPal account is not necessary. You will be able to use your credit or debit card to make your donation. (See image below for an example)

Monthly On-line Supporters
In certain circumstances, like being a monthly supporter, you will need to create a PayPal account. This will include either a credit or debit card or your bank account information and email address. Each month (for the number of months you choose) the amount you specify will be donated to the program or ministry you indicate.

Should you need to cancel your monthly donation before it expires, log into your PayPal account and go to your Subscription Details page or contact us at 800-264-6224 or email us at PayPalSupport@MBCH.org.

I Do Not Have a PayPal Account
If you do not currently have a PayPal account, click the "Continue" link by the "Use your credit card or bank account" information on PayPal's page. (See image below for example) The Billing Information screen will pre-populate with your name and billing information as entered on our site. Enter your preferred credit or debit card to complete your donation. Upon completion, PayPal will e-mail you a confirmation.

I Have a PayPal Account
If you already have a PayPal account, you will be able to log into your account by entering your password on the PayPal screen. (See image below for an example) From there you will be able to complete your donation. Upon completion, PayPal will e-mail you a confirmation.
