Making a donation to United Way

How do I make a donation? 

You can make a donation by payroll deduction or using your credit card. You can make your donation online or using a paper form. If you make the donation online, you no longer need an account to make a donation. 


To make a paper donation:

A small number of paper forms will be distributed to each school. You can also download the PDF here: English, French. Printed forms can be sent to Mellissa Applewaithe, Corporate Records, at 133 Greenbank.


To make a donation online, please follow these steps:

Step 1 - Choose amount and charity organization

Click on the applicable link to take you to the homepage: 

English 

French

 

On the home page, enter the desired donation amount for your chosen charity organization/s using the ‘Add’ button. To donate to the Education Foundation of Ottawa, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. Should you wish to donate to other charities of your choice, such as the Cathy Nevins Memorial Fund, search for the fund in the box provided at the bottom of the page. Both of these funds give directly back to the students in OCDSB schools.   


Note: Enter the total amount that you wish to donate to the charity of your choice. If you choose to pay by credit card, the amount entered will be divided by 12 equal payments. If you choose to donate by payroll, the amount entered will be divided by the number of payroll deductions. 

 

Once the amount has been entered for a single or multiple charities, click on Review & Donate (top right of the screen). 


Step 2 - Donation review

You are now on the Donation Review page. If you wish to make any changes to the amount, you can do that on this page. Click ‘Next’ once done reviewing. 


Step 3 - Personal Information & Payment Options

This page asks for your personal information (OCDSB email address, home address and OCDSB School/Dept.) and your preferred payment option - Payroll Deduction, One-Time Credit Card, Monthly Credit Card, or One PayPal Payment. Selecting Payroll Deduction allows you to choose between 26 and 20 deductions over the course of the year. 


This page also gives you the option to ‘Make it a perpetual pledge’ where United Way will automatically apply this amount as your donation every year. This is applicable for Payroll deduction and monthly credit card.


If you choose a one-time credit card or One PayPal Payment, you can choose to receive your tax receipt by email. 


If you have selected Payroll Deduction, click the Confirm button at the bottom of the page. The next page will provide you with the confirmation details and the option to print your donation information.


If you have selected any of the other payment options, click the Next button at the bottom of the page.


Step 4 - Billing Information (For payment options excluding payroll deduction)

This page asks for your billing information and credit card or PayPal information. Enter the details and click Submit at the bottom of the screen. The next page will provide you with the confirmation details and the option to print your donation information
