Donation and Payment

DONATION

To donate to Vancouver Sowers Society of Education (VSSE), you can send the money either online using Interac e-Transfer (Canadian donors ONLY), PayPal or Credit Cards, or by mailing us a cheque. Interac e-Transfer is the preferred method as it is faster and requires less administration effort than cheques, and it’s provided free of charge by lots of banks. For donations using PayPal or Credit Card (handled by PayPal), PayPal charges a fee which will be deducted from the amount that we receive.

Tax receipts will be issued for donations CAD 20 or over. Per CRA regulations, you MUST provide your full name and full physical address for us to issue you a tax receipt.

Interac e-Transfer

Please use Interac e-Transfer in your online banking and send your donation to our email address vansowers@vansowers.org. Note:

  • As far as we understand, you can use Interac e-Transfer only if you have an account / online banking with a bank in Canada.
  • Please let us know if the donation is to be for any specific purpose using the “instructions” or “message” field of your bank’s online banking. If you do not specify, the donation will be considered as a general donation and VSSE will use it according to our priorities and needs. You can also provide at the field any further instruction.
  • Please provide us your full name and full physical address if a tax receipt is needed. If possible, please also provide us your email address so that we can send you the tax receipt via email.
  • The email address vansowers@vansowers.org has been set up with Autodeposit. That is, the money you e-Transfer to this email address will be deposited automatically to our bank account, without us having to answer a security question. As such, you don’t need to send us the answer for your security question.
