The Hillsborough Fund
Donations to the Hillsborough Bahá'í Fund can be made at any time online. Of course you can also donate by check or cash at Bahá'í events, or send in your check by mail if you prefer. See separate sections for each method below for more details.
For any donation-related inquiries, please email the Treasurer Mrs. S. Potavin
or call (908) 281-7740.
The Hillsborough Assembly has partnered with Paypal, making it possible for any Bahá'í to make safe and secure contributions to the Hillsborough Bahá'í Fund with a credit card or using your own Paypal account.
To make your contribution online, simply click on the Donate button below. Your internet browser will be directed to the dedicated Paypal-Hillsborough donation page. Just fill your desired donation amount, click Update Total, and choose your method of payment: (1) using your credit card or (2) using your Paypal account. You can leave a comment for the Treasurer on the next screen before your payment is finalized.
After you finalize your donation, the Hillsborough Assembly will be notified right away and your credit card or Paypal account will be charged. The Assembly can receive your donation 3-5 business days later.
Please note: Paypal charges a 2.5-3% transfer fee per donation, on average, with a smaller fee for larger donations.
For example: if you donate $50 using this online method, the Assembly's Fund will receive $48.60, while transfer fees amount to $1.40, or 2.8%. If requested, the Treasurer will provide you a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution in the amount of $48.60. The transfer fee is not deductible.
Please write all personal checks out to:
Spiritual Assembly of Hillsborough
P.O. Box 5603
Hillsborough, NJ 08844
Cash donations can be made in person at most Bahá'í events - a special Fund Box is usually available. Please note that it will not be possible to issue any receipts for anonymous donations. Please use an envelope and attach your name to your cash donation if you would like a receipt.
