How to Donate via Interac e-Transfer

Donating through Interac e-transfer is simple and takes about 10 minutes. Here’s what you need to get started:

  • An online banking account. First, you must be set up for online banking with your financial institution. (This means you must own and use a computer or web-enabled smartphone.) If you are not already set up for online banking, contact your financial institution for step-by-step instructions.
  • An email address. If you don’t have an email address, you can register for one from a free service, like Gmail or Outlook.
  • Our giving code. Giving codes (or fund codes) are important because they clarify how your gift will be allocated and recorded in the books. The Wellness Centre has the following giving code for Interac e-transfers: Emergency Wellness Centre (EWC). Please type this code into the subject line of your Interac e-transfer email (e.g., Subject: $50-EWC). If your gift is sent without a designation, it will be allocated to the Building Bridges/WBYL General Fund.

Step 1. Sign On

Begin by opening up your online banking app and locating the Interac e-transfer tool. Each financial institution’s banking app will have a different path to this tool. However, it is usually found with other financial transfer tools.  Sending an Interac e-transfer is the same as paying with debit.

Step 2. Register Building Bridges for the Future Saskatoon Inc. as a Payee

You will be asked to register Building Bridges as a payee in the system. Do this by entering our name and email address You may be asked to save Building Bridges in your list of payees. This makes it easier to make subsequent payments.

Both email and mobile phone numbers can be used to communicate during an Interac e-transfer process. You select your preference as part of setting up the transaction.

Step 3.  Set Up the Transaction

  • Select the account you want to transfer money from (e.g., chequing, savings, other).
  • Select the amount of money you want to transfer as a donation. (Note: some institutions have limits on the amount that can be transferred.)
  • Confirm the date and frequency of the transfer. Some institutions allow you to schedule multiple transfers. Please contact your financial institution for information on these services.

Step 4. Confirmations


Confirm the transaction details, including Building Bridges, name, email, and mobile phone number. Confirm the amount of the donation. Select your preferred method of communication: text or email.

Note: Depending on your account type, there may be a fee for transferring funds by Interac e-transfer. These fees are paid by you, as the donor.

Step 5. Message and Giving Codes


Please include fund codes with your message so that we know how to allocate your donation. Our fund codes are listed above.

Step 6. Notice of Completion

Once you confirm the transaction details, you will receive a confirmation number and receipt. You can print this receipt for your records if you wish.
