Monthly Giving Program
Our Monthly Giving program is a convenient and easy way to support Alzheimer Society programs, services and research. A small monthly donation may not seem like much, but it all adds up to help those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Why give monthly?
Make one decision with big impact – divide your (tax-creditable) donation into twelve equal payments and know that your gift works each month to support a cause you believe in.
Your money goes farther – monthly donations are one of the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways to give. That means we can spend less time and money on admin and more on what matters.
It helps you budget – and us too – a regular and predictable source of income provides stability in program planning and allows us to get involved in long-term projects.
- When do I get my tax receipt?
Once you become a Monthly Donor you will receive a tax receipt by February 28th each year. Tax receipts are sent via Canada Post, unless you have a registered email address with us, in which case you will receive your tax receipt electronically.
- Can I receive an electronic tax receipt?
Yes, you can help save costs on paper and postage by signing up for an e-receipt. Contact us at 1-800-616-8816 ext. 2951 or 416-847-2951, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- What happens if I move or change banks or credit card?
Just contact us at 1-800-616-8816 ext. 2951 or 416-847-2951. We will update our records to ensure there is no interruption of your donations.
- What if I want to modify my donation?
Contact us at 1-800-616-8816 ext. 2951 or 416-847-2951, and we will adjust the amount on your behalf. Your tax receipt will reflect the total amount of your gifts for the year.
- Is there an advantage in setting up my monthly gift from my bank account versus my credit card?
Yes. It costs the Alzheimer Society slightly less to debit a bank account versus a credit card. However, both ways of giving are gratefully received.
- Can more money than has been authorized be taken from my account?
No, never. At the Alzheimer Society of Canada, we take great care to process your donations accurately.
- How will I know that the Alzheimer Society of Canada is receiving my donation?
Your monthly credit card or bank statement will show a charge from the Alzheimer Society of Canada. This charge will appear as ALZHEIMER SOCIETY OF CANADA or an abbreviation (ASC), or in some cases, ALNAT.
