We use the Quebec-based Zeffy platform for donations, so that’s the name under which the transaction will appear on your account statement. Usually, we have to pay a credit card fee of about 3%. Thanks to Zeffy, which gives us 100% of the donations, we eliminate these fees which are very costly for an organization like ours. In exchange, Zeffy asks you to leave them a tip: you will see a percentage appear at the end of the form. You can choose the amount, no amount is mandatory.

Frequently asked questions

We use Zeffy, a 100% free donation tool funded by contributions from generous donors like you. The model is based on transparency: 100% of your donation goes to the Maison des greffés Lina Cyr, while other donation platforms take a percentage.

That’s why Zeffy asks for a voluntary contribution, or “tip,” to help pay for bank fees, support the operation of the platform, and enable Lina Cyr Transplant House and thousands of other nonprofits to increase their impact and change the world. Thank you for your support!

You have complete control over how much you contribute to Zeffy. In addition to being 100% free to the Maison des greffés Lina Cyr, here are some reasons why we love Zeffy and some reasons why you can choose to support them as well:

1. Zeffy sends instant tax receipts to donors.
2. Zeffy simplifies the administration and tracking of your donation, freeing up valuable House team time.
3. Zeffy covers the bank fees for all donations made through the platform.

You have several options:

1. Set the tip amount to $0 and proceed with the payment online.

2. Make a check payable to Maison des greffés Lina Cyr*.
