Our Project Funding office in Vancouver, BC processes any/all donations for ministries of YWAM Canada.
PLEASE NOTE: We can process funds for full time YWAM staff and ministries who hold an active account in good standing with our office. If you are unsure about a missionary's status, please call us on 604.436.4433 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before making a donation. We can also process donations for DTS participants who are enrolled in a program in Canada only.
There are currently three ways to give donations as outlined below.
PLEASE NOTE: All donations submitted through our Project Funding office are subject to a processing fee of 2.5%. As well, all donations given through the Canada Helps website are subject to an additional 3.5% processing fee. All donations given through CHIMP are subject to an additional 2.8%. Funds donated via Canada Helps or CHIMP usually take 7 to 14 days til they are processed in our office, and will be sent to the missionary on the next available processing day after they have been received.
1. Cheque/Money Order
Please make your cheque or money order payable to "Youth With A Mission" and include a separate note with the name of the ministry and location you wish to support. Mail to the address below.
If you are interested in giving on a monthly basis you can send in post-dated cheques or use our pre-authorized payment method below.
PLEASE NOTE: This method, along with the Pre-Authorized Payment option is generally the preferred method to use. While "credit card" giving is more convenient, the receiver loses money based on the percentage taken off that goes towards "service charges".
2. Pre-Authorized Payment (PAP)

3. On-Line Giving Via Credit Card - (Two Options)
An Official Donation Receipt for Income Tax Purposes (Canadian) will be issued for all credit card donations from the respective service provider and sent to the donor’s email address. Donations are sent on to YWAM from both Chimp and Canada Helps in 7 – 14 days and are sent out to missionaries and bases on the next available processing day.
A. Giving through CHIMP
CHIMP (short for Charitable Impact) is an organization based in Vancouver, Canada, that offers donors the ability to give using their credit card. CHIMP offers a processing fee option of 2.8%, in addition to the Project Funding fee of 2.5%. Their website offers Y workers the opportunity to fundraise using a ‘Giving Group’ feature. Click HERE to donate through CHIMP (or the CHIMP graphic) and then type in the name of the person, project or base you wish to donate to and hit the "donate now" button. If the name is not listed scroll down to “You can also give to YWAM directly”, click on Donate Now and put your comment in the message box. Please also note: Some missionaries may have a private Giving Group due to security issues. If that is the case, simply contact them directly to get a direct link to their Giving Group page. If you would like to give a desired amount “after fees”, please be sure to multiply your amount by 1.056 to cover the “fees amount”. (For example - $100.00 x 1.056 = $105.60, 2.8% off = $102.64, 2.5% off = ~$100.00) This will ensure that the person you are giving to will receive the actual desired amount.
B. Giving through CanadaHelpsCanadaHelps is an organization based in Toronto, Canada, that offers donors the ability to give using their credit card, PayPal or Interac. CanadaHelps offers a processing fee of 3.5%, in addition to the Project Funding fee of 2.5%.

If you would like to give a desired amount “after fees”, please be sure to multiply your amount by 1.063 to cover the “fees amount”. (For example - $100.00 x 1.063 = $106.30, 3.5% off = $102.58, 2.5% off = ~$100.00) This will ensure that the person you are giving to will receive the actual desired amount
