Why does my tax receipt have so many categories? Why are some of my donations under the EFT category and other donations under the Operations category? What is the difference between Architectural Renewal, Capital and Roof Project?

When we migrated the data from the old system to the new system the old categories migrated as well.  Under the new system the categories are named differently. This is the only year there will be a doubling up. The donations for 2021 are only posted to single categories.  Currently Operations are the General Donations including Operations EFT.  However, on your receipt you may see some labeled EFT (old system) and others Operations (new system). The Roof Project is also made up of Architectural Renewal and Capital.

Will I receive a tax receipt for the 3rd party donations I made (SVDP, Prolife etc)?

Yes, your tax receipt will include all the donations you made through St. Maurice in 2020.

I made a donation in January 2021 and I made a note on it that it was a 2020 donation. Will it be included on my tax receipt?

We make every effort to notice these notes and include the donation in the year they are intended. Occasionally we miss a note and the donation is posted to the year it is received. We can make a manual change if this happens to you and give you a new amended tax receipt. If you are missing a donation please contact Claire Schultz, Operations Coordinator to have it corrected.

What happened to the cheques/cash I donated earlier in the year? What happened to my donations before the pandemic?

All the donations received by St. Maurice Parish in 2020 have been processed into the management system. We used a secure data migration system to make the transfers from our old system. You will receive one tax receipt for all your 2020 donations. If you have any concerns please contact the office.
