Project Funding Office - Canada

Our Project Funding office in Vancouver, BC processes any/all donations for ministries of YWAM Canada.


*** YWAM PROJECT FUNDING is very much operating per usual from 9 – 5pm every weekday; our office may be physically closed but our team members are all working safely from their homes and aiming to provide as close to normal service as we can, and continuing to do so with our usual standards of data security and protection at all times.

*** You can reach us at our usual phone number - 604.255.5262 - please leave a message if we miss you and we will reply as soon as possible. Or via email We will also do our best to extend our availability to help with urgent enquiries outside of those times. THANK YOU for your understanding and patience during this time!

PLEASE NOTE: We can process funds for full time YWAM staff and ministries who hold an active account in good standing with our office. If you are unsure about a missionary's status, please call us on 604.255.5262 or email before making a donation.

DTS STUDENTS: We are unable to process donations for DTS participants anywhere in the world. This includes Canada.

There are currently four ways to give donations as outlined below.

PLEASE NOTE: All donations submitted through our Project Funding office are subject to a processing fee of 5%. This is being increased to 5% as of January 2023 due to the rising cost of operations. All donations given through CanadaHelps are subject to an additional minimum 3.5% processing fee. All donations given through Charitable Impact are subject to an additional minimum 2.8% processing fee. All donations given through Mission Enablers International are subject to an additional minimum 3.5% processing fee. Funds donated via 3rd party websites take an average of 7 to 14 days to be received and processed by Project Funding, and will be sent to the designated missionary on the next available disbursement date after they have been received.

1. Cheque/Money Order

Please make your cheque or money order payable to "Youth With A Mission" and include a separate note with the name of the ministry and location you wish to support. Mail to the address below.

If you are interested in giving on a monthly basis you can send in post-dated cheques or use our pre-authorized payment method below.

PLEASE NOTE: This method, along with the Pre-Authorized Payment option is generally the preferred method to use. While "credit card" giving is more convenient, the receiver loses money based on the percentage taken off that goes towards "service charges".

2. Pre-Authorized Payment (PAP)

3. On-Line Giving Via Credit Card - (Two Options)

An Official Donation Receipt for Income Tax Purposes (Canadian) will be issued for all credit card donations from the respective service provider and sent to the donor’s email address. Donations are sent on to YWAM from both Charitable Impact and Canada Helps in 7 – 14 days and are sent out to missionaries and bases on the next available processing day.

A. Giving through Charitable Impact

Charitable Impact - Make a DONATION TODAY Charitable Impact is an organization based in Vancouver, B.C. that offers donors the ability to give using their credit card. Charitable Impact offers a processing fee option of 2.8%, in addition to the Project Funding fee of 5%. Their website offers Y workers the opportunity to fundraise using a ‘Giving Group’ feature. Click HERE to donate through Charitable Impact and then type in the name of the person, project or base you wish to donate to and hit the "donate now" button. If the name is not listed scroll down to “You can also give to YWAM directly”, click on Donate Now and put your comment in the message box. Please also note: Some missionaries may have a private Giving Group due to security issues. If that is the case, simply contact them directly to get a direct link to their Giving Group page.  If you would like to give a desired amount “after fees”, please be sure to multiply your amount by 1.0717 to cover the “fees amount”. (For example - $100.00 x 1.0828 = $108.28, 2.8% off = $105.25, 5% off = ~$100.00) This will ensure that the person you are giving to will receive the actual desired amount.
