You worked hard for your money, to support yourself, your family, and those you love. You don't want it going to banks or to fees!
Unfortunately, when we give to charities we don’t always realize that there could be hidden fees meaning that the gift you gave isn’t as large as the gift that is received. Here are a couple ways to give that cost nothing to you and cost nothing for Rock Solid.
Pre-Authorized Debit Donations from your bank account
To set up monthly donations, email a void cheque to email@example.com along with the following, replacing the content in the square brackets with the proper information:
"I, [Your Name], authorize Rock Solid Refuge to withdraw [$amount] monthly starting [start date and month]."
One time Donations
To make a one-time donation, email a void check to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the following, replacing the content in the square brackets with the proper information:
"I, [Your Name], authorize Rock Solid Refuge to withdraw a one-time donation of [$amount] on [date of donation]."
For confidentiality, only email financial information to email@example.com.
Some banks do have a small $1 charge to the donor for this practice.
Interac e-Transfer is a simple, convenient, and secure way to send and receive money directly from one bank account to another.
