It’s entirely secure, but if you would prefer to avoid using the online system, setting up a direct debit through your bank is very easy and very secure.
Is making a credit card donation online secure?
Make sure you’re on the correct site first, and try to use a secure computer whenever you can. Other than this, it’s a completely secure system.
Will I receive an acknowledgement of my gift?
Occasionally the sheer volume of donations can prevent us from acknowledging each individual donation, but we do try our best to get in touch with everyone who donates to us. We appreciate everyone’s support and, as a small charity, we try to keep the relationship between charity and supporter very close. If you donate online you should definitely receive acknowledgment through AMAR’s Virgin Money Giving page.

WHAT IF I DON'T ITEMIZE TAX DEDUCTIONS
Did you know that even if you don’t itemize deductions on your federal income tax return, you can still take a deduction of up to $300 for cash donations made in 2020! Under the CARES Act, part of the federal government’s pandemic relief program that passed in March 2020, you can deduct up to $300 for cash donations you make in 2020 when you file your tax return in the spring of 2021. We hope you will consider AMAR in your giving efforts this year.”
