Donate with Confidence
GRID is a registered charity in Canada (BN 837694926RR0001) and 501(c)(3) charity in the USA (EIN 47-2654791). We are also a certified member of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities, so you can be confident that we are meeting the highest standards of integrity and trust.
Your donations are only spent on programs and projects approved by GRID’s Board. Donations designated to a specific project will be used there unless GRID’s Board determines that the project’s need has been met or it cannot be completed, in which case the donation will be used where most needed.
What is eligible for a charitable donation receipt??
We issue charitable receipts for donations of $50 per year and greater. We do not issue receipts for gifts in kind except in rare circumstances. Please contact us to discuss a gift-in-kind donation.
When will I get my donation receipt??
GRID mails donation receipts each February for the year prior.
How much of my donation goes towards administration?
Our organization is run almost entirely by volunteers and plans to continue doing so. This keeps our administration expenses very low: typically 8% or less of our donations are spent on administration.
Can I designate my donation towards a specific aspect of GRID-NEA’s work?
Yes. Simply select the appropriate fund on the donation form. General fund donations are used where needed most.
I made a mistake with my donation. Can I get a refund?
Charitable law prohibits any charity from returning donations; all donations are non-returnable. You may, however, request us to direct your donation to a different GRID project. If you wish to redirect your donation to another project, please contact us within 48 hours of making your donation.
How do I know that my personal information is safe when I donate to GRID?
