COVID 19 Note – We are currently only sending Digital Membership & Sponsorship Packages for the foreseeable future.
Special Note: Please be aware that when a donation is not processed, the error message appears at the bottom of the page! If you do not see the success page which reads:
“Thank you for your donation. Your Credit Card has been charged $___. We have sent a confirmation email.”
after clicking the “Donate Now” button at the bottom of the donation form, your payment has not been processed.
If you are encountering issues with the donation page, you are also able to donate through the online store here. (Please note donations through the online store will not be automatically receipted, they need to be manually entered and receipted, so please expect your tax receipt 2-4 weeks following your donation.) Or donate over the phone – call Shirley: 250-679-2778.
For Membership Renewals – please note because you are receiving benefits with your Membership, it is not eligible for a tax receipt – please use this link to the shop for Memberships.
Our online donation page is the best way to donate. It is secure & safe and the donation is made available for our use for the donkeys the day after you donate. You will receive a donation tax receipt immediately unless you have opted to receive an annual receipt. In this case, your online donation will be included in the year-end total. (Please Note: If you are an existing or annual receipt donor, you will need to “login” to add your donation to your current file.)
General Donations – Giving Where It’s Needed
While many of our donors donate to our specific programs such as the Buy-A-Bale, Sponsorship or BrayVe Hearts, others prefer to give a non-specific donation for us to use “Wherever It Is Needed Most”. General donations are given on an annual basis or at special times during the year. Some General Donations come from supporters who have a specific wish for the use of their donated dollars. We are happy to gratefully accept all donations and we will try our very best to honour our donor’s wish provided it supports our mission, values and overall goal for the Refuge and its resident donkeys.
Our donor contributions arrive by mail, eTransfer, email, phone, and in person and every one is appreciated regardless of the amount. Some donors use third party sites such as PayPal and CanadaHelps. We hope that you will consider contributing directly right here on our website.
