Adyen is partnering with UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, to allow all merchants on the Adyen platform to fundraise through their online checkout and POS terminals using Adyen’s donation feature, Giving.
Adyen will match every donation made via Giving to the relief effort. Donations by Adyen employees to UNHCR that are made directly will also be matched.
UNHCR is dedicated to saving lives and protecting rights of people forced to flee globally. They have stepped up their operations in Ukraine and neighboring countries, and remain firmly committed to support all affected populations. Their efforts focus on four key areas: Coordinating the response, humanitarian assistance, protection, and shelter and core relief items.
By default in Giving, Adyen absorbs all costs related to donations - ensuring that the full donation amount makes it to UNHCR.
