My donation is not going through, what is the problem?


Debit/Credit Cards – Donations made using a credit card are authorized immediately. If your attempt is being rejected, it is likely that either the name or the address you have entered does not match what is on file with your credit card provider. These are the most common issues related to credit card donations being rejected. As long as the information being entered matches what is on the card and on file with the provider, there should be no issues.

Bank/EFT – Most donations made using bank accounts go through initially. However, common issues are insufficient funds, incorrect account number, or account restrictions like a limitation on the number of debits (this is common for savings accounts). If your donations is returned, we will contact you via email and let you inform you of the issue and the reason.
