How You Can Help
Donate by e-Transfer
You can use E-transfer via your online banking. You just set up a new Payee called Nanoose Community Services or NCS and the email is:
Your bank transfer system will walk you through the amount of the payment. It is set up to be automatically deposited, but if your bank asks to include a security question, please use: “what is my last name” and the answer will be the donor’s last name.
If you’d like to make an e-transfer donation to a specific NCS program, indicate in the message box during setup of the transfer:
All online donations are enabled by our giving partner: CanadaHelps.org
Both monthly and one time donations can be made conveniently by credit card or PayPal.

The Canada Revenue Agency does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities.
When you sell your shares for cash, you’re responsible for the tax due on the gain, even if you plan to donate the proceeds from the sale. But when you donate your securities to NCS through CanadaHelps, those capital gains aren’t subject to tax.

NCS cannot accept donated household goods
Thank you for thinking of NCS and neighbours in need to donate your goods to, however NCS does not have the facilities or volunteer operations to manage the receiving and distributing of household goods. Please instead consider donating to SOS Thrift Store, Salvation Army Thrift Stores, or through the Nanoose Bay Buy Nothing group on Facebook.
