Pre-Authorized Debit

A Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) is the most efficient and cost-effective way for you to partner financially with an Ethnos missionary or project. To learn more, read the PAD frequently asked questions.

The benefits of automatic transfers

  • Increased safety: No cheque is in the mail and your transfer is secure.
  • More efficient: Your missionary can stay focused on ministry because your contributions are regular and reliable.
  • More effective: In the time it takes to process a few cheques, your PAD and hundreds of others can be processed, helping free missionaries for other ministries.
  • Less expensive: Your PAD contributions cost less in bank fees than contributions by cheque or credit card, so your giving goes farther.
  • More for your missionary: If you give by PAD instead of making recurring credit card gifts, more of your gift goes to your missionary. The credit card transaction fee —2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction — is paid by your missionary unless you choose to add to your gift.
