Interested in making a monetary donation? Through our parent organization, The Mahone Bay Founders Society, we will issue charitable tax receipts for all donations over $20 by request. To request a tax receipt after you have made a donation, fill out this online form or email us at

There are multiple ways to donate!

We prefer that you consider using PayPal Giving Fund with Paypal account or a credit card here where we receive 100% of the funds and you receive a tax receipt automatically from Paypal:

The next best option is an E-transfer from your online banking  to with “donation” in the message and no password should be required. We receive 100% of the funds but we will need to pay to have a tax receipt prepared for you for donations over $20.

A cheque by mail to the Mahone Bay Founders Society at PO Box 583, Mahone Bay, NS B0J 2E0 is also acceptable and we received 100% of the funds but this method requires more administration time and for us to pay to have a tax receipt prepared for you for donations over $20.

Want your donation to go towards one of our specific projects rather than make a general donation? Click our “Gift Shop” tab (or visit where you can select a project to donate towards and use Paypal or a credit card. We lose a small percent of the donation (2.2% to Paypal fees) and will have to pay to have your tax receipt prepared for donations over $20.
