Fundraising Pledge PaymentsTypically, family, friends and work colleagues will support your efforts by wanting to donate. There are a few ways to handle their donations:
(1) the easiest is to direct them to the secure online donation form (found here) where they can donate using their credit card - they simply allocate the donation to you as the walker and it builds on your fundraising tally - the donor will receive a tax receipt in the mail;
(2) if the donor prefers to use EFT, cheque or Postal Order then they simply need to let us know the details of their donation by email or mail (e.g. the name of the walker they are sponsoring, and their personal details if they require a receipt) - click here for the bank details;
(3) if you are collecting money from your donors, you should keep a record of their donations (you can download a sponsorship form here) - when you eventually deposit all collected monies with us (by credit card, EFT, cheque or Postal Order) simply send us the information about your sponsors and we will provide tax receipts back to your donors;
(4) your donors (or you) can also pay directly into the charity's bank account - click here for the bank details.
