Giving Hope to the Future through Education

   Automatic Monthly Contributions
"Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do."
                                                                                           - Shaquille O'Neal

Many of our donors have made their lives much simpler by setting up automatic monthly donations to Avivara. This has two benefits: One, the donor no longer has to worry about when or whether to make a donation, it simply happens automatically, and two, it provides our programs with a more steady and stable source of income.

There are two ways to set up an automatic monthly donation to Avivara. One is through your bank's billpay system, or you may arrange for a monthly charge to your credit card through Paypal. Both methods are explained in greater detail below.

Bill Pay to Avivara
To make a recurring monthly donation using your bank's bill paying services.
Most banks now offer automatic billpaying services to their customers. We are not large enough to have this done through an electronic funds transfer, but banks will send us a physical check automatically each month if you set up a billpay account for Avivara with your bank.

Generally, all you need to do is contact your bank and provide them with our business name and address:
7202 33rd NW
Seattle, WA 98117
Note: If you do plan to set up a recurring payment through your bank, please Contact Us so that we can have the necessary information in our records to process your contribution correctly.

How will my donation be used?

We maintain a firm and ongoing commitment to our donors to ensure that their contributions are used wisely and appropriately. Therefore, we adhere to the Standards for Charitable Accountability as developed by the U.S. Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance. And, as you can see from the graph to the left, since our inception in 2008, over 91% of our expenditures have gone directly towards our programs. (Truthfully, it costs money to raise money and administer it appropriately, so we have established accounting procedures that accurately describe our fund-raising and administrative expenses. Therefore, we will never make the exaggerated claim that 100% of your donation will go to programs.)

Thank you again for your desire to create a more just world through the power and dignity of education. Your contribution does have an IMPACT!
