Secure Online Donations and Purchases
Shopping or donating on our website is safe and secure. To process payments, we use @Pay Merchant Account Services, which uses an industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol during the payment process. This link ensures that all data, including credit card information, passed between PayPal’s servers and browsers remain private and integral.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

This website uses cookies to keep track of donations and purchases. Cookies are used in most major web sites and do not cause any security breach on your computer. Without cookies it would be difficult for this site to know what donation amount and purchases you are making during the checkout process. Most browsers initially are set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to either refuse to accept cookies, or to notify you when you have received a cookie. Please note that certain functions associated with the merchant account services may not work properly when you set your browser to disable cookies.
