Monthly do­na­tions

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - MY HOME -

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.
