applepay-donate-the-springApple is making it easier and more secure to donate to your favorite nonprofit organizations with just a touch of your iPhone using Apple Pay.

Apple Pay support for charitable donations kicks off today with nonprofits ranging from global organizations such as UNICEF to the American Red Cross and American Heart Association. More nonprofits will offer Apple Pay over the coming months so their supporters can make easy, secure and private payments.

Users don’t have to enter billing and contact info, create an account or fill out long forms to check out, Apple Pay gives nonprofit supporters a way to donate instantly.

“We’re making it incredibly easy to give back with Apple Pay,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay. “Websites and apps tell us they see twice as many people actually completing a purchase with Apple Pay than with other payment methods. We think offering such a simple and secure way to support the incredible work nonprofits do will have a significant impact on the communities they serve.”
