Other ways to donate:

US Donors

For donors that require a US tax receipt, donations are accepted through RPEC International. Simply select Carlisle, Wes & Sue – NorthWind Capital Project on the dropdown list


How will my donation designated to the Capital Campaign be handled?

Your donation will be recorded in an externally restricted fund called the Capital Projects Fund. Your donation will first be used for the purchase of the property (formerly Eagles’ Cove) and the start-up costs. After donations have been raised to cover the purchase and start-up costs, the donations will remain in the Capital Projects Fund and be used for planned Capital Projects.

If NorthWind receives more donations than needed for this property purchase and start-up costs, will you return my donation?

Once a donation has been received, a Canadian Charity cannot return it to the donor without a court order. As noted above, your donation will be used for planned capital projects.

What are some future capital projects?

NorthWind Family Ministries has the following building projects planned:

  • Main Lodge – dining hall, chapel, and kitchen
  • Family cabins
