Giving: All you need to know about your donation.
Online: Donating online is our easiest option. You can donate using any major credit card. Just click the red or green donate now buttons on this page to make an online donation. (All international donations made on the Cathedral’s website will be converted to Canadian dollars).
Security for online donations: We use PayPal, the largest online global payment processor, to securely process online donations. Don’t worry; you don’t need an account with them to donate to the Cathedral. And we’ll never share your information with anyone. If you’re donating in honor of someone or want to direct your donation to specific costs, please use the special message area in the PayPal checkout process.
By cheque: Send cheques (we don’t advise cash) for general donations to Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC V6C2L1. If you’re donating in honor of someone or want to direct your donation to specific costs, please write this in the memo of your cheque.
By phone: Please call our office at (604) 682-3848. We’re here Monday through Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Upon making your donation, please also let us know if you’re donating in honor of someone (and their name).
Tax-deductibility: Christ Church Parish Vancouver is a registered non-profit with the Canada Revenue Agency, so all donations made directly to the organization are tax-deductible (with the exception of some international donations). Please contact us for our audited financials, which can also be found in the office.
Tax receipts: Receipts for online donations may take up to 2 working days to process and email to you. Be on the lookout for yours; tax receipt emails sometimes find their way into junk mail folders. If you don’t get your receipt within 2 working days, please let us know and we’ll gladly reissue you another one. Offline donors receive a consolidated tax receipt in the mail at the end of February in the next calendar year, unless requested otherwise. Again, if you don’t get your receipt within that time, just let us know and we’ll resend it.
Legacy donations: Are you looking for information about how to leave a donation to Christ Church Cathedral through your will or a gift of life insurance? If so, see our Legacy Stewardship page.
