If you have questions regarding contributions, or DSRA expenses, please contact the DSRA Treasurer.
Bank account contributions - We are unable to accept contributions by EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer); an alternative method of making regular automatic contributions is to set up recurring electronic check payments from your bank account, the only details you should need to set up recurring payments are our address (as above), and phone no. (313-498-0155).
Credit cards and PayPal contributions - DSRA accepts on line contributions via any major credit cards or PayPal. DSRA is unable to accept credit cards directly, so we use PayPal as our carrier for all credit card transactions regardless of whether you have a PayPal account or not.
To change credit card information or a recurring contribution:
If you have a PayPal account, please log into your PayPal account Wallet to add/edit/delete a credit card as needed. To change recurring contributions for a new credit card, go to Payment Settings, Payment Preferences. If you want to change the amount, you will need to cancel the active recurring contribution or credit card in the Payment Settings, Preapproved Payments, then create a new recurring contribution to your preference.
If you do not have a PayPal account, (1) please contact the contact the DSRA Treasurer who will cancel your recurring contribution from PayPal; then (2) you will need to set up a new recurring contribution via the DSRA website "Contribute" button please. For your security, we only have access to your name and contribution amount(s), we do not have access to your credit card type or number.
If you have problems with contributions via credit cards or PayPal certainly contact the DSRA Treasurer first to check if we can resolve the issue, but some issues are beyond our control, for example: occasionally, when making a contribution by credit card, an error message will occur, such as: "Your credit or debit card has been declined for this transaction; PayPal could not validate the card. Please verify that the information you entered is correct, or try a different credit or debit card". We apologize for this problem, this occurs when PayPal does not recognize a credit card being used for a contribution, either (1) where the user has a PayPal account and they are using a credit card that is not associated with their PayPal account, or (2) where the user does not have a PayPal account, and is using a new credit card and the inter-card services have not yet caught up with the data matching, which can take from days to even weeks with some credit cards. We are very sorry for your inconvenience, and we value your contributions, but DSRA cannot resolve this problem, it is a personal credit card issue. If you have a PayPal account, please contact PayPal, or contact your credit card company.
Contributions to DSRA Inc. are not tax deductible under IRS rules pertaining to 501(c)(5) tax-exempt organizations.
