    Hi, I've got a new form:

    The organization will use this to collect membership dues. In the past, they did this via paper form and mailed check.

    The problem: I can't seem to figure out how to add an option for the user to make a donation after they select one of three membership price options. Can you help? Thanks.

    Hello Terry,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. Here are the steps you should follow:

    #1. Instead of displaying the membership options in the PayPal question, you can add the products in a check box question.

    #2. Add a text box to collect the donation amount. 

    #3. Add a "Form Calculation" widget in your form to calculate the total amount of membership and donation.

    #4. Add PayPal payment question in your form and set it to read the amount from the calculation widget. The following guide should help you how to pass calculation to PayPal payment question:
