Monthly donations or dana ($5/$10/$20) can be set up through e-transfer, your employer, or through Canada Helps. Small monthly donations have provided the centre with almost $4,000/month. Monthly pledges are a great support for covering the costs for maintenance, utilities, insurances and taxes in the past year. The centre has been able to hold 8 courses this year, though since the shut-down in March 2020, the occupancy of the center is running at less than 20% person capacity. Please email [email protected] with any questions about setting something up.
