Giving FAQ

What is our relationship with Hope Church Mississauga (HCM)?

HCM was the church that established our church, and continues to support us both financially as well as administratively. At present, Hope Church Toronto North (HCTN) operates as a ministry of HCM. All budgeting, financial reporting, and issuing of tax receipts are done for us by HCM. It is important that any donations intended for HCTN are clearly indicated as such.

 

Does the church pay bank fees when I give online via Credit Card?

Yes, the church pays bank fees of approximately 2.5% on card donations made via the Church Center app.

 

Are there online giving options where the church doesn’t pay bank fees?

Yes, you can give by e-transfer (instructions below), or by setting up a Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD).

 

What is Pre-Authorized Debit and how do I set it up?

You can set up a pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) authorizing Hope Church Mississauga to withdraw your donation according to your instructions. The dates of these withdrawals are limited to Weekly on Fridays, or the 1st, 15th, and/or 30th of the month. The service fees paid on PAD donations are approximately 2.5% less that those paid on Credit Card donations. Please download the PAP form, fill it in, print it, sign it and send it back with a void cheque to giving@hopeississauga.ca.

Can I give using e-transfer (email transfer)?

Yes, you can transfer using e-transfer using your on-line banking, or your bank’s mobile app. Please use the following instructions:

  1. Add ​Hope Church Mississauga​ as a new e-transfer recipient with the email address ​etransfer@hopemississauga.ca
  2. Skip setting a security question, Hope Church has Auto Deposit set up.
  3. As you make the transfer, select the recipient Hope Church Mississauga (that you set up in Step 1).
  4. IMPORTANT​: Please be sure to include HCTN and your Name and Address in the Message section of the transaction (we need this information in order to issue an income tax receipt for this donation). Here is an example of the memo: HCTN, John Smith, 123 ABC Street, Toronto ON.

 

Is online giving secure?

We've taken steps to ensure that the giving process is safe and secure from beginning to end. It is the same technology used by banks and e-commerce companies such as Amazon.com to keep your information safe and secure during transactions.

 

Will I still receive a contribution statement?​

Your historical giving will be available online for you to view at any time. Annual Charitable Tax Receipts will be available before the end of February for the previous calendar year. These receipts will be issued by HCM. Click below for instructions on how to view your giving history and download your giving receipts.

Each person should do as he has decided in his heart—not reluctantly or out of compulsion, since God loves a cheerful giver.
