Financial needs are always reality for charitable organizations.
Please note: Spending of funds is confined to programs and projects approved by the Foundation. Each restricted contribution designated towards such an approved program or project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the organization, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where needed most.
There are a number of ways in which you can make donations :
Cheques made payable to The Simon Poultney Foundation may be mailed to:
Box 3099, Spruce Grove, Alberta T7X 3A4
EFT is a safe, secure way to give automatically on a monthly basis without having to write and mail a monthly cheque. Once you are enrolled your donation is automatically deducted from your chequing or savings account. You can cancel your enrollment at any time in writing. We recommend giving via EFT because it helps reduce our administrative burden.
To start giving on a recurring monthly basis via EFT please download the EFT Form, complete it with all the necessary information and mail it to us. You will receive written confirmation of receipt of the form and that we have set up the transaction. A record of your donation will appear on you bank statement.
Official Tax Receipts for donations by Cheque or EFT will be mailed in February following the calendar year of the donation.
You can make one-time donations or set up a monthly recurring donation from your credit card by clicking DONATE and following the instructions.
Official Tax Receipts will be issued by CanadaHelps on our behalf for all such donations. One time donations will receive a receipt immediately. For recurring donations you can set up a profile with CanadaHelps and receive one receipt at the end of the calendar year.
Why do we use CanadaHelps ? Many people these days want to make donations using a credit card. All credit card transactions incur service fees. If we were to set up our own credit card processing program the fees we would pay as a single vendor would be much higher than those charged by CanadaHelps; who receive much lower fees since they have such high volumes and can pass those on to us.
We are registered as a Charitable Organization with Canada Revenue Agency (BN/Registration Number 814885547RR0001)
