Now you can make a credit card donation online through the Canada Helps website. Canada Helps allows charities, such as Durham Community Foundation to receive online credit card donations by facilitating the donation process. They provide a safe, secure environment for donors to make a contribution. Once the donation is made online, a tax receipt is generated electronically and emailed to you. Your donation is then sent to Durham Community Foundation, less only the administrative fees that Canada Helps is charged by the credit card company for processing. Clicking on the Donate Now button below will redirect you to CanadaHelps.org, where you can enter your gift. You will then be asked to specify where you would like your money to go.
