When selecting Esperanza, you will be redirected to our organizational page, where you will then click “give.”

Select a predesignated amount, or select “other” to give a gift amount of your choice. Then click “donate.”

The screen will then prompt you to select the method of payment. Your next screen will vary based on what you choose.

For example, this is what you will see if you select “new card.”

After adding your card and confirming your donation, you will see that your gift has been doubled!
