Giving FAQ

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

HCM is our main sending church that helped 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.

 

Can I schedule recurring donations?

Yes, you can specify whether you want your contribution made weekly, twice per month, or monthly. You can set up as many schedules as you would like, so it is possible to give monthly as well as weekly concurrently.

 

Do I need to use my credit card to schedule recurring donations?

No, you can set up a Pre-Authorized Payment (PAP) 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 PAP donations are approximately 2% less than 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.

 

​Will I still receive a contribution statement?

Your historical giving will be available online for you to view at any time. Charitable Tax Receipts will be mailed out the final week of February for the previous calendar year. These receipts will be issued by HCM.

 

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.

 

For additional questions or for more information, contact us by email at giving@hopemississauga.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
