Class Action Suit Filed against PayPal’s Giving Platform

Friends For Health: Supporting the North Shore Health Center (GuideStar page) and Terry Kass, a woman seeking to give a gift to the charity, are the lead plaintiffs in a lawsuit brought by Edelson PC alleging that PayPal’s Charitable Giving Fund misrepresented its operations and its relationships with most U.S. nonprofit organizations and took donors’ gifts intended for specific charities and directed them without consent to charities of PayPal’s choice. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Chicago, asks for the suit to receive class action status on behalf of all charities and all donors to charities that were misled and/or harmed by PayPal’s actions as well as those of the Washington, D.C.–based PayPal Charitable Giving Fund
