HOW TO MAKE A DONATION TO ST. AIDAN’S DURING COVID CLOSURE

 

SETTING UP REGULAR DONATIONS

OPTION 1: Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG): The most cost-effective way to support the parish through pre-authorized donations is to use the PAG plan which debits your bank account on the 20th of each month. The parish only pays a $0.50 service charge/month for your donation.

To sign up for PAG:

  1. Print, complete and sign the PAG Authorization Form.

  2. Get a copy of a void cheque from your bank account (these can be printed from your banking website if you do online banking).

  3. Send these two items by email to our Donations Secretary at staidan.envelopesec@gmail.com or mail them to St. Aidan's (2423 Queen St E, Toronto, ON, M4E 1H6).

OPTION 2: Canada Helps: Monthly donations can also be set up using your credit card or Paypal through the Canada Helps website, on the day of the month that you choose. St. Aidan’s receives 96.5% of your donation, there is a service charge of 3.5% of your donation amount for recurring donations.
