How To Donate
February 15, 2021 Filed in: Donate
The fees that we charge for our camp are set so that they only cover the actual camp activities. They do not cover building programs or camp maintenance. For the upkeep and development of the physical camp itself, we rely on donations.
We are a not-for-profit Registered Charity under the Government of Canada, Canada Revenue Agency. Our registration number is 89548 6322 RR 0001 and you can view our filings on the CRA website canada.ca/charities-giving.
Receipts for all charitable donations are sent out at the end of the year.
By default donations are added to our general fund. This fund is used for the camp needs as decided by the camp board. However, you can also specify how your donation will be used by designating it to the Nelson Rothfus Memorial Scholarship Fund or to the Building Fund.
Donate by PayPal
One of the easiest ways to donate is using PayPal. This allows you do donate either from your PayPal account, or from a credit card.
Donate by e-Transfer
You can also make a donation using an e-Transfer through your bank. When doing this, send the transfer to “firstname.lastname@example.org“. This address is configured with our bank to automatically accept transfers, so you shouldn’t have to setup any additional security questions.
Make sure that in the message section of the transfer you include the word “donation” and optionally the fund. In addition include your address information if you wish to receive a charitable receipt.
Donate by Cheque
Of course you can still donate the “old fashioned way” by sending a cheque. Make the cheque out to “Camp Teepee Pole” and send it to the following address:
Camp Teepee Pole
Edmonton Trail RPO
Calgary, AB T2E 8K9
Be sure to include the word “donation” and optionally the fund in the memo field or on an attached piece of paper.
