Six ways to give your donation… one charitable tax receipt.

① e-Give: Donate Electronically

St Stephen’s uses Pllenty, the same electronic payment system used by St James Cathedral and the Catholic Diocese of Niagra. Pllenty is an online version of the retail cashier’s debit/credit terminal and charges the same fee, 2.5%. This is half the fee charged by Canada Helps, Benevity, Tithely, and Nucleus, and means that the gifts you give through Pllenty will be included in your, single, St Stephen’s charitable tax receipt, that we issue at tax time and you will receive no additional solicitations from other charities.
