Feeding America is dedicated to providing the public with secure, private and easy-to-use channels for donating to our impactful hunger-relief programs. We’re thrilled to announce that starting today, we will become one of the first nonprofit organizations to offer our supporters the ability to use Apple Pay to contribute to our work.

Apple Pay will reduce barriers that potential donors may face when considering whether to donate, leading more people to support Feeding America. It will also provide a new, user-friendly way for our long-standing donors to contribute to our work, encouraging them to give more in support of our mission. As we gain new supporters and the hunger-relief movement grows, we will be able to serve more of the 42 million Americans struggling with hunger. And we will draw even closer to realizing our vision of a hunger-free America.

Feeding America is launching Apple Pay as a growing number of Americans are not only shopping online, but also using the web to support the causes that they are most passionate about. Increasingly, people are using their mobile devices in particular to make key financial decisions. By offering them the ability to donate using Apple Pay, we are providing one more way to safely and conveniently transact online.

Users can simply use the Touch ID on their Apple device to donate to Feeding America with Apple Pay, so there’s no need to manually fill out shipping and billing information. Users will also continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by their credit and debit cards when they use Apple Pay.

Anyone with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later can use Apple Pay. Additionally, users can also donate through 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.
