Donation FAQs

1) When I give a general donation to ERDO how is my money used?

Your donations to ERDO's general fund help support important projects and activities we're running that may need additional support. General funding donations are vital to our work. They ensure all our relief and development projects receive the funds they need to be able to meet the needs of the people we're serving who are caught in desperate circumstances.

2) When will I receive a tax receipt for my donation?

We typically issue one receipt for each gift you donate to ERDO. We send these receipts out within a week of receiving your gift so that you know your gift has been received and applied to the project you have specified. However, if you would prefer to receive just one annual receipt, please let us know and we’ll be happy to arrange that for you. Your yearly receipt will be mailed to you in February of each year in time for your tax return.

3) Does ERDO have an independent auditor?

Yes. ERDO undergoes a rigorous annual audit by RLB LLP who offer expert auditing and advisory services to a number of non profit agencies, churches and denominations. You can be assured that in giving to ERDO, you are supporting a charity that is responsible in finances and management and that is Biblically based. Visit CRA's overview of ERDO.

4) Who can I contact if I am having trouble making my online donation?

You can contact us by phone during business hours at 1-800-779-7262 or e-mail at

5) Does ERDO take donations of materials, like medical supplies?

Due to the challenges and high costs of shipping internationally we tend to purchase needed supplies in the same location as where they are needed.
