About CanadaHelps:

At CanadaHelps, the way you choose to donate to OCO is up to you.

You can give when you want, in the amount you wish, and in the manner that suits you best. They offer donors the option of browsing causes or areas of interest that are close to their hearts, or the search capacity to find local entities, or even that specific group you support. Donors can give monthly, as well as have the ability to purchase charitable gift cards for family and friends. They ensure a donor's privacy, and strive to meet the needs of today's donor. And they do all of this online.

Making a donation is simple: a donor chooses Ottawa Chamber Orchestra, identifies any special requests associated with that gift (memorial designations, specific project requests, frequency of gift, Gift Card, etc.), and begins the checkout (or payment) process. Once the donation has been paid for, the donor receives an immediate, secure PDF tax receipt, issued by CanadaHelps, by email. CanadaHelps then disburses the funds (less a 3% transaction fee) to OCO, along with any special requests associated with that gift, and in the manner the donor specified at checkout.

In a world where you can buy your books online, make travel arrangements online, and even buy your groceries online, making your charitable contributions online is not a far-fetched idea. The website portal has been available to donors who wish to use the online medium for giving since 2000, and each year has grown to meet the ever-increasing number of new donors and charities that find their service.

CanadaHelps recognizes that privacy and security are important issues for both donors and charities and is committed to ensuring a safe online experience. Click to review the measures that CanadaHelps takes to protect your security and privacy online.
