Donations

From your one-time donation or through monthly giving, from memorial gifts or through your estate planning, your financial support is gratefully appreciated. Your funds will help to create legacies that last far into the future by helping to facilitate conservation covenants and other initiatives that will protect wild and special places in perpetuity.

There are a number of ways you can donate. First, you can donate through a secure online site.  We offer two ways to do this: through PayPal Canada (our preferred method, but it requires you to have, or be willing to register for, a PayPal account) or through Canada Helps. Both methods accept credit cards, but using PayPal also opens up the possibililty of using other PayPal fund sources.  To use one of these two methods, click on one of the buttons below.

Second, you can download the Membership and Donation form and mail in your contribution via cheque.

Third, you may donate via Interac e-transfer. Most Canadian banks allow users of their online banking sites to do Interac e-transfers (sometimes a small fee is charged). Send your e-transfer gift to donate@metchosinfoundation.ca. If you wish to have a tax-deduction receipt, please provide your email address in the optional message box of the transfer.  (Some bank e-transfer systems ask you to supply a question that the recipient can answer–if this is the case, you can ask the question “What is the code phrase?” and give the answer as “mydonation.”)

Would you like to give a Metchosin Foundation donation as a gift to someone? We will be glad to provide a beautiful, hand-crafted card of a local Metchosin scene or plant to send to the person (or we will send it, if you prefer).  To do this, download and submit the gift donation form.

Donations are tax deductible. Charitable donation receipts are issued for all donations over $20. (If you use the first choice, the secure online site, you will receive a donation receipt for any amount.)  Charitable status number 8156 1556 RR0001.
