If you tend to fret late in the year trying to support your chosen charities before the charitable tax receipt deadline rolls around, know that there are many reasons to consider becoming a monthly donor.
1. It’s affordable. Regularly scheduled donations make it easier to enjoy the gift of giving year-round. Instead of a larger annual gift when you might already have greater expenses, breaking down your donations into affordable monthly payments makes it easier on your pocketbook, and also saves postage and time with automatic transactions.
2. It’s convenient. With monthly giving, payments are automatic in your chosen form of payment, so you don’t have worry about sending a cheque or filling out an online form. It also offers flexibility; you can upgrade, downgrade or cancel your gift easily. And you receive a cumulative tax receipt annually, making it easier to file your taxes.
3. Ongoing updates and personalized engagement. Becoming a monthly donor means joining a special group of supporters that the organization values very much.
