TIES is a Canadian registered charity with the CRA’s Charities Directorate so donations to TIES by Canadian taxpayers are eligible for an official donation receipt for Canadian income tax purposes.

PayPal gives registered charities like TIES a very good rate for credit card processing. Just over 98% of your donation will reach us and go towards our projects. Please note that in order for us to issue an official tax receipt for income tax purposes, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires you to enter your complete name and address (even for an online donation). An official donation receipt for Canadian income tax purposes for the amount of your donation (for donations of $20 CAD or more) will be issued by email at the end of the month once processed by PayPal.

In a hurry? – donate through GoFundMe

Processing fees are somewhat higher with GoFundMe, but it’s fast. No tax receipt issued (unless you enter your full address and request one), so just enter your email address, card number, and done! Slightly more than 97% of your donation reaches us after processing fees. Please check the box that says “Share my donation information and contact details with this charity.” so that we can say thank you! (You may use the Donate Now button on our GoFundMe page to give to the greatest need, or scroll down the page to choose a fundraiser for a specific project.)

Options with no fees to us – tax receipt issued
