We’ve been getting some questions about making donations, which if you’re trying to raise funds for something, those are the questions you love to field. I’m going to answer a few here. If you have any more, please leave a comment with your question and we will answer it for everyone. You can also get a little more information on our Donate page.
Q: When can I start donating?
A: Now. We have set up our bank account and are ready to accept donations.
Q: How do I donate?
A: Currently, we are only set up to accept offline donations. We know, it’s lame. We’re working on it. In the meantime, you can mail your check to:
2425 Valley Haven Drive
Raleigh, NC 27603
Checks should be made payable to Dynamic Water.
One alternative to mailing a check would be to use your bank’s bill pay service to send us your donation. You can make the bill payable to Dynamic Water and have it sent to the address above.
Q: Will I ever be able to donate online?
A: Yes. Like we said in the previous answer, we’re working on it. We are still getting it set up with the bank, but most likely we are going to get our bank account attached to a PayPal account, which will allow you to donate online.
However, one thing to note is that when you donate through PayPal, they take a cut. So, even though writing checks is old fashioned, it does allow for more of your money to go to our project.
Q: Are my donations tax deductible?
A: Yes. Dynamic Water is operating under a 501(c)(3) so all contributions are tax deductible.
Q: Money is tight, but I want to help. Can I give a little now and more later?
A: Times are tough. We’re all feeling the crunch in our wallets. You can give as much, or as little, as you want.
If you want to help, but your budget is tight, one option would be to split up your donation. Instead of giving $50 or $100 now, you could give $10 or $20 a month for a few months. We hope to step up a monthly giving program once we get our online donations set up.
Thanks a lot for considering being a part of bringing clean water to the people of Laisamis.
