Save the Children Now Accepting Donations Using Apple Pay

New Technology Offers Easy, Secure and Private Way to Donate

Fairfield, Conn. (Nov. 14, 2016) — Global aid organization Save the Children announced today that supporters can now donate to the organization using Apple Pay, making donating via mobile easy, secure and private.

Save the Children has a long history of innovation in its work and in ways donors can support its mission to serve children. By accepting Apple Pay, Save the Children continues to be a pioneer in charitable giving -- allowing supporters to give faster, easier and more secure than ever before.

“Save the Children is excited to accept Apple Pay to make it easier for our supporters to donate to our programs benefiting children around the world,” said Carolyn Miles, Save the Children’s President & CEO. “We’re embracing this new technology that makes supporting our work easier, faster, and safer.”

Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When supporters use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

Donating in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in billing information.

When making payments for goods, services and donations on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch.
