Donations for Dependent

Postby NebraskaWest » Thu Sep 08, 2016 2:20 pm

I am attempting to sign my handicapped son up so he can make his donation on-line. He has the same e-mail address as mine, but has a different User Name. Thus far I have been unsuccessful in setting up an account for him to donate on-line. I manage his finances so I am the one that will be doing the actual entry.

Any clarification would be appreciated.

I believe that you do need a different email address for donations. For some email services you can create a different email address that gets delivered to the same mailbox. For example, in gmail you can add write and gmail will ignore the '+morename' part and deliver it to That's what I do for my son and I'm in a similar situation.

Alternatively you could create another email account on one of the free services and set it up to forward to your main email address.

I think gmail also ignores periods. So would end up in the same mailbox as
