Giving online through our website is handled by CanadaHelps.
CanadaHelps provides online donation processing and issuance of charity income-tax receipts for all donations made through their site (you can select to receive a tax receipt with every donation or once per year). All Canadian charities are listed on their website, so if you wish, all your charitable donations can be made through this service, which reduces the need to track multiple receipts at tax time.
CanadaHelps ensures your personal information and data is secure and managed to meet 'Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards'.
Donations may be made with "No dedication", "In honour of", or "In memory of".
As with any credit card or PayPal transaction, there are fees to be paid by the Church, on your donations:
Monthly donations accrue a 3.5% fee
One-time donations accrue a 4.0% fee
Donations may also be made by mailing a cheque to:
Church of the Ascension, 1385 University Avenue, Windsor, ON, Canada, N9B 1B6
In this case, charity income tax receipts will be issued annually by the church, usually by the end of January each year.
Please feel free to telephone; or leave an email message by submitting the 'Send us your questions and comments'; the Parish Administrator (Dawn) will respond to all messages, usually within a day.
Note: the Parish Administrator receives all questions & comments. She will direct feedback to the Rector, or the Webmaster, or the person best suited to respond.
