BOISE, Idaho

The Idaho STEM Action Center recently began accepting online donations with credit and debit cards, thanks to Access Idaho’s PayPort secure payment processing service. This is the 32nd state agency to implement Access Idaho’s PayPort payment service.

“The STEM Action Center has found that Access Idaho’s PayPort service is an incredibly user-friendly system. It was easy to link to our website and has allowed users to make donations to the Center in a quick and efficient manner,” said Angela Hemingway, Idaho STEM Action Center Executive Director. “We are also using it for an upcoming fundraiser. Registrants can use PayPort to sign up and pay for their registration online, as well as donate additional funds to Center projects and programs.”

The STEM Action Center accepts any credit or debit card displaying a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express logo.

The partnership between the STEM Action Center and Access Idaho operates under a self-funded model, in which no tax dollars or county funds were used to develop and none are necessary to maintain the service. In addition to PayPort, Access Idaho, a subsidiary of NIC, manages the state’s official Web portal,, and specializes in online government applications.
