"Your business classification is not eligible" -- enroll in the PayPall Giving Fund

We are listed as a religious organization on our account, but getting message "Your business classification is not eligible"  when trying to enroll in the PayPall Giving Fund and confirm the charitable status. PayPal says that religious organizations can qualify for the PayPal Giving Fund.

How can we enroll into the PayPal Giving Fund without changing type of Non-profit organization (currently religious), because it says "your service keyword must be Charitable and Social Service Organization."

One is allowed to select Non-Profit Organization as the Business Type, tick the This nonprofit is a registered charity. check box and in the Product or service keyword field type in Religious Organizations so it's weird that you're getting that error message. But if changing it to Charitable is suggested, go with it. It shouldn't change what you're classified as in your PayPal account, or is it asking you to change to Charitable in your PayPal account, not the application for PayPal Giving Fund.

Thank you for your reply.

 

To avoid this message -- "Your business classification is not eligible" -- I should add "Social Service Organization" instead of religious.

Will this not impact the status if the organization with PayPal, and maybe IRS? Where could I ask for a second opinion?
