Can I make cheques payable to Global Prayer House or Pursuit Internship for a tax receipt?

As interns prepare for the Pursuit Internship, many will need to fundraise in big and/or small ways. One of the biggest questions that is asked is about tax receipts. For all of our interns who are fundraising and talking to potential donors, this is an important question to know the answer to.

If an intern has a donor who wants a tax receipt, that intern will have to set up an account with a separate church and/or non-profit organization. Global Prayer House cannot issue a tax receipt for any funds that are designated for a specific individual. Global Prayer House can only process funds and issue tax receipts that are donated without any verbal or written communication in regard to the designation of the funds.

We recommend that any interns who are looking to raise funds talk with their local church about the possibility of setting up an account for this purpose. If your church is not able, the second option is to contact YWAM Vancouver and they will give you further instructions. Their contact information is as follows:

Email: admin@projectfunding.ca

Address: YWAM Vancouver Project Funding Office P.O. Box 57100 RPO East Hastings Vancouver, BC, V5K 5G6

I took the Internship, and it was the best thing I've ever done! My life is changed, my family is changed, and my relationship with The Lord is like it's never been before.
Joakim A, Sweden
I have been transformed more each day with the revelation of how deep, how high, how vast the Father's love is for me. The arrows of His grace and mercy have shattered into the core of my heart. Now, my heart is beating to the rhythm of the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and things will never be the same.
