I started donating $3 every month to freecodecamp.com and it’s auto-drafted from my paypal account. I want to put this on pause while I am currently trying to save money, can I cancel the monthly donations? If so, how do I accomplish this? I’ve looked everywhere in my settings and I don’t see any option to stop or cancel the donations. Thanks!

Not sure if you can change this on freecodecamp.org. But you can change it in your paypal account:

Go to: Settings > Payments > Previously accepted payments (or something like that). Then click the payment to freecodecamp and click “Cancel”.

Just found the “correct” way:
You should be able to stop the donation here: https://www.freecodecamp.org/commit

that doesn’t help, there’s no option on the commit page to select to commit nothing. This is for the standard $3 donations to freecodecamp, not the commit fundraising.

And I don’t want to have to cancel the recurring payment every time it occurs through paypal either.

According to https://www.paypal.com/dm/selfhelp/article/how-do-i-cancel-a-recurring-payment,-subscription,-or-automatic-billing-agreement-i-have-with-a-merchant-faq1067, you have to follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Profile (the gear icon) on the top right corner of the page.
  3. Click Pre-approved payments under “Payment settings”.
  4. Select the merchant whose agreement you want to cancel, and click Cancel.
  5. Follow the instructions to cancel the agreement.

Just to add to @NealVanMeerbeek’s detailed instructions, you can also follow this link directly and manage any recurring payments or donations you have set up in PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_manage-paylist

Please don’t donate any money you can’t afford to donate. Good luck with your finances, and thanks again for supporting the freeCodeCamp nonprofit community.
