How to Donate to Ottawa Monthly Meeting

You can contribute directly to the Meeting (to either the general or the refugee funds) in the following ways:

  • By giving a cheque (or a series of post-dated checques) made out to “Ottawa Monthly Meeting” to the Assistant Treasurer (or mailing a cheque to the Meeting House “attn: Assistant Treasurer”).
  • Through Canada Helps.   Canada Helps will retain about 3.5% of the donation to cover their costs and will provide the charitable receipt.
  • By arranging for a regular direct bank transfer.  Contact the Assistant Treasurer to arrange this or send an e-mail to
  • By Interac e-mail transfer.  We believe the steps for this are:
  • Check your bank's website to find out how much you will be charged to send an Interac e-mail transfer.  The charge is likely to be on the order of $1.50.  (OMM's bank charges nothing to receive the transfer.)
  • Assuming you want to proceed, read or watch the tutorial information on your bank's website.
  • E-mail the Assistant Treasurer to let her know you want to send an Interac e-mail transfer.  Also tell her in which account to place the money and, if you want a tax receipt, provide your full name and address.
  • Once the Assistant Treasurer gives you the "all clear", send the transfer to the Assitsant Treasurer's e-mail address, following the instructions from your bank.

A charitable receipt for tax purposes will be sent to you early in the new year following the year of your contribution. In order to receive a receipt please make sure that the Assistant Treasurer has your correct name and address.
