Interac e-Transfer is a simple, convenient, and secure way to send and receive money directly from one bank account to another. All you need is access to online or mobile banking through a participating financial institution, and you can send money to Southgate Baptist Church — without sharing any personal financial information. It’s a great alternative to cheques and cash. A totalled donation receipt will be issued by the Church at the end of the year if you elect this option. To give using Interac e-Transfer please use this email address to send your donation to SGBC:

How to do e-transfer


Step 1. Sign On
Begin by opening up your online banking app and locating the Interac e-transfer tool. Each financial institution’s tools will have a different path to this tool. However, it is usually located with other financial transfer tools.  Sending an Interac e-transfer is the same as paying with debit.

Step 2. Register our Church as a Payee
You will be asked to register our church as a payee (recipient) in the system. Do this by entering our church’s name (Southgate Baptist Church), email address [].  You may be asked to save our church in your list of payees. This makes it easier to make subsequent payments.

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 details of the transaction including our church’s name, email, and mobile phone number.
Select your preferred method of communication: “notify recipient by: email.”
SGBC is set up for auto-deposit so you don’t need security question or password.

Select “send now” or “Confirm the amount of the donation”.
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 description (general fund, benevolent, designated etc.) with your message so that we know how to allocate your donation.

Step 6. Notice of Completion
Once you confirm the details of the transaction, you will receive a confirmation number and receipt. You can print this receipt for your records, if you wish.

Donations made using interac will be included in the donation receipts sent out in February for tax purposes.
