Frequently Asked Questions

I have already made a gift to Variety. Why should I sign up as a monthly donor?

First, we would like to thank you for your previous support. Contributing monthly helps to lower administration costs as you’ll receive one tax receipt at the beginning of each calendar year and it makes your bookkeeping easier when it comes to tax time. In addition, monthly donations provide a predictable source of income that Variety can depend on every month. It means that you enable us to make firm commitments to our Variety families so they can count on us to receive ongoing support.  Monthly giving is a great way to provide ongoing support to BC’s kids

Where does my monthly gift go?

Your monthly donation will support our areas of greatest need. Donations are directed to areas where they’ll be the most beneficial for the most children.

What if I want to change my monthly giving arrangement (bank account, credit card information or donation amount)?

Submit your request/inquiry to Kitty Au, Donor Relations Officer at 604-268-3885 or kitty.au@variety.bc.ca or click here to adjust your monthly donation.

Is there an advantage in setting up my monthly gift from my bank account versus my credit card?

Yes … if you choose to make your monthly donation by automatic bank withdrawal, payments will be processed from your account monthly without having to worry about credit card expirations. Simply send us a blank cheque marked VOID and complete the pre-approved debit agreement on our donation form.

While both methods are great ways to support Variety BC, there are fewer administrative costs associated with automatic bank withdrawal.

Please contact Kitty Au at kitty.au@variety.bc.ca for more information.

What if I wish to terminate my monthly gift?

You can alter or cancel your monthly giving arrangement at any time simply by contacting Kitty Au, Donor Relations Officer at 604.268.3885 or by going online to the Monthly Donation Adjustment form.
