How to Give
If you would like to make a donation there are a number of ways that you can give. We have several ways to give: Interac E-Transfer, Donating Online with a Credit Card, Cheque, Pre-authorized Debit, Online Bill Payments, and an In-Person Offering Box. If you have questions or need help, please call 1-800-601-0981 or email our church treasurer, Richard Shupe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Interac e-Transfer allows you to send money safely from your bank account directly to the church in an instant. Using your bank’s website or mobile app select Interac e-Transfer. Send contributions to the email email@example.com. There is no need to select a password as we have automatic deposit set up, so once you hit send we get the funds almost immediately.
If you want to give to a designated fund, please specify that in the optional message field. Any unspecified funds will be allocated to the church’s general offerings.
Donate Online with a credit card
You can make a donation online, using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover). You will be redirected to a webpage run by PayPal, who we use to process these donations. At that page you can choose the amount of your donation. You do not have to have a PayPal account to make a donation, simply use the link under the heading, “Don’t have a PayPal account?” to donate without having to log into PayPal.
Cash & Cheques
We accept donations during our office hours, and any other time that the church is open for a group or event. There is a secure offering slot located at the back of the auditorium that you can drop a donation into at anytime.
If you prefer, we also receive donations by mail. Our address is:
Smythe Street Church
913 Smythe Street
If you submit a form with a void cheque, you can authorize weekly, bi-weekly or monthly donations to be automatically withdrawn from a bank account. Download a PDF copy of the form, or contact the church office. Please submit the form to the office, attention to the church treasurer.
Pay as a bill via online banking
We are now set-up to receive donations through the online bill payment service offered by banks. To use this service, you need to log in to your banking website, and in bills, add SMYTHE STREET CATHEDRAL as one of your bills.
Once you find SMYTHE STREET CATHEDRAL, just use9999OFFER as your account number. You are now setup to make a donation. For tax receipting purposes, the donation will be recorded as coming from the person logged into the bank website (the bank provides us with the name and address of the person making the donation).
You can also give to a particular project, missionary or department of the church with online banking. Please click here for instructions on how to set this up.
