Membership & Donations - Frequently Asked Questions:

1. If making a contribution online, will my financial information be secure?
Yes. We use Paypal for our online memberships and donations – one of the safest and most secure systems for transferring payments and monies over the internet. Any financial information you provide will only be available to Paypal; which securely encrypts all its data.
2. Can I change my monthly contribution, or will I be locked in for a full year at the same rate? Absolutely, you will always have the option to change the amount of your monthly contribution or cancel if need be. To do so, please contact us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 905-466-2171.

3. I want to provide monthly donations but do not want to use debit or credit, is there another option?
handsleafYes. While we prefer monthly donations made through Paypal, we are also happy to accept a series of post-dated cheques made out to BurlingtonGreen Environmental Association. After you complete the on-line payment form ( and select "off-line payment" instead of "Paypal"), you can then mail your cheque(s) to:

BurlingtonGreen Environmental Association
1295 North Service Road, Suite 114
Burlington, Ontario
L7P 3A7

4. How will I know if my donation payment went through?
Once you click submit, you will receive a computer generated email to notify you that your payment has been successfully submitted. You may need to check your junk mail folder in the event you do not receive the confirmation in your inbox.  If you mail in your payment, you will receive a personal email of thanks once it is received at our end.

5. Can I receive a tax receipt for my contribution?
Sorry no, we are a registered not-for-profit corporation that operates without charitable status as doing so could limit our ability to advocate for rights and justice for the environment.
