If you’re like most Canadians, you may associate giving with a mad dash in December trying to figure out which charities you will support and how much you will give before the year end charitable tax receipt deadline.

Instead of waiting late into the year when you are already strapped for cash during the holiday season, it may be time to consider monthly giving to make a difference and enjoy the gift of giving year-round. 

Monthly givinbg is a scheduled financial donation given to the charities you care about – without actually increasing how much you would normally give at the end of the year.  And, we think you’ll come to love monthly giving as much as charities do.

Advantage for you, donors

In addition to supporting the organization that is important to you, there are several advantages for donors such as:

  • Get strategic with your giving.
    Giving always feels good, but it feels even better when you commit to the causes important to you and carefully strategize how much you can give. Consider allocating a charitable budget — such as 1% of you income, for example, spread over 12 months.

  • Easier on your pocket book.
    Scheduled giving not only helps charities forecast their funding, budget their finances, and plan future charitable projects and initiatives —
    it also helps you budget as well!  Instead of making the mad donation dash in the middle of the heavy-spending holiday season, feel good giving year-round and avoid a January cash-flow crunch.

  • Easier to track.
    When you choose to give monthly using Maison du Père donation platform, you’re able to retrieve your online tax receipts at any time in your free, online account.  Or, you can simply wait until tax time to get one receipt with all of your charitable donations made that fiscal year. Beyond tax time,
    access to your donation history will help you better assess and plan your charitable strategy and budget for the next fiscal year.

  • It's simple with Maison du Père. 
    Go to Choose the campaign through which you wish to donate to our organization. Determine the monthly (or weekly, or fortnightly, etc.) amount you want to donate, then the method of payment. Select "Several times".
    It's that simple! Each month, we will process your donation on the day of the month you selected. You will never forget to make this important charitable donation.

  • Best of all, monthly giving allows you to make a bigger charitable impact.  Month after month, your scheduled donations will almost always total more than sporadic donations made to various charities throughout the year (which of course you can still do!).

Advantage for us, Maison du Père

For most charities, donation revenue often times fluctuates dramatically from month to month, and year to year.  Monthly giving, however, offers a steady and predictable source of funding, and also allows charities to benefit from other advantages:

  • Less expensive. 
    There’s typically a significant cost advantage for all but the largest gifts when donors choose to give online instead of mailing or phoning in their donation because manual administrative work is eliminated.  That’s particularly true when donations are made through Maison du Père donations plateform. And in the case of monthly donations, the cost advantage is more significant as the charity can reduce its marketing in confidence of your continued support. 

  • Streamlined administration. 
    When using monthly gifting through Maison du Père donations platform, we take advantage of fast donation disbursements, instant issuance of tax receipts, and online access to donor data. The administrative tasks related to this donation are automated, saving time and money.

  • More effective planning. 
    With a more predictable cash flow, we are able to remain focused on fulfilling our charitable mission by having the ability to plan future projects and initiatives without worrying if enough funds will come in to carry out our charitable efforts.
