Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

These are the most commonly asked questions about Gifts with Vision. If your question isn’t on the list, please email us.

You will be sent a confirmation email with the details of your Gifts with Vision purchase once you have completed the checkout process. You can also login to the Gifts with Vision website to review your purchases at any time.

Only Gifts with Vision given for Mission & Service can be credited to a congregation’s Mission & Service goal. You can make a gift for Mission & Service through Gifts with Vision by choosing the Give Rise to Change gift option. You will be prompted at checkout to enter the name and city/town of the congregation you wish to credit. If you choose to credit a congregation for your Mission & Service online gift, you will still receive a tax receipt for the entire amount of your gift.

It goes to you, the donor. Canadian tax law does not allow us to provide a tax receipt to anyone who did not personally make a donation.  The tax receipt will be sent in an email attached as a PDF file.

The church consults with Mission & Service partners and relevant stakeholders for projects with a limited timeframe and a budget separate from our ongoing core program funding. If you wish to make a large gift for a specific Mission & Service partner, please consult staff who can help you make a designated gift to a specific partner. If you would like to suggest a gift, please email Gifts with Vision.

The first cheques are sent to partners in December. They will continue as long as gifts are given to a designated project or until the catalogue is closed. We ask our partners to respond with preliminary updates in May of the following year, and a final report the following December. We will post updates and thank-you notes from partners on the Gifts with Vision website as they are received.
