Frequently Asked Questions
Our purpose is to transform youth, students and graduates into fully committed followers of Jesus Christ. Partnering with us through a financial gift is helping to invite young people into deeper relationship with Him.
How Does My Gift Make a Difference?
Today's youth are tomorrow's leaders. Our mission is to be part of what God is doing in shaping them. Our staff on university/college campuses and at Pioneer Camps are modeling Christ-likeness and mentoring this generation, during their formative years, to follow a calling to a Kingdom purpose.
What Can I Give?
At Inter-Varsity we ask you to partner with us prayerfully, giving in the way in which you are called. We encourage donors to consider monthly giving which can be set up through pre-authorized chequing or credit card withdrawals, though we appreciate any gift whether scheduled or otherwise. Other gift options, such as bequests and gifts-in-kind can be discussed with our Donor Services team, at 416.443.1170 or toll-free at 1.800.668.9766 ext 125.
Where Does My Gift Go?
You can choose to designate your gift to a specific ministry, staff person, or you can choose to give to where needed most. If you give to a specific fund and the fund is oversubscribed, gifts will be directed to the most strategic area of need.
Is my Gift Tax Deductible?
Yes! Every gift to Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship is considered tax deductible. Receipts for total annual giving are sent in February of each year.
