How does a 50% refund on your donation sound to you? Really? We thought it was pretty good news as well. Please check out the document to the right to understand how Alberta residents can receive 50% of their donation paid for compliments of our federal and provincial governments. Alternatively, you can click on the following link provided by the Alberta Government that provides the same information in their words: http://www.culture.alberta.ca/communityspirit/taxcredit.aspx
The best method is monthly auto-debit as that assists greatly in planning. You would simply email a copy of a void cheque along with how much you wish to donate on the 1st of each month. 3CM sets up the rest.
We also have the capacity to allow supporters to donate online. Donations are made by clicking on the link to the left for CanadaHelps.org designating them to 3CM (our Canadian sponsor). While 3CM is a Canadian Registered Charity, the tax receipts for online donations are actually issued by CanadaHelps.org as part of the online donating service that they provide to registered Canadian charities.
Even if you are not seeking a receipt, it is better to send funds through CanadaHelps.org (online) or 3CM (cheques only) because they periodically send all accumulated funds to our bank here in Santa Rosa and only incur one international wire transfer fee -- rather than each donor incurring such fees for each donation sent to us.
