Yes, you can. 

If you are a registered 501c3 non-profit, you can contact both Stripe at sales+nonprofit@stripe.com and PayPal . In the US, the discounted nonprofit rate is typically 2.2% + 30c. If your organization is outside of the US, the rate may be be higher or lower. It is best to contact them directly for the latest discounts and requirements.
