Q. What is BC12?
BC12 is the official name of the BCCHS recurring gift program. A recurring gift is an ongoing, specific gift amount determined by a supporter that is either deducted monthly from a checking or savings account or charged monthly to a credit card.
Q. How do I sign up for BC12?
Select a contribution amount - as little as $5 per month - and every month that amount will be deducted from your checking or savings account or charged to your credit card.
Q. What are some of the benefits of giving on a recurring basis?
EFFICIENCY. Spreading your support throughout the year makes it easy to include your donations into your personal budget. Reduced paperwork and administrative expenses mean more of your donation goes to where it is needed most.
CONVENIENCE. When you participate in the BC12 Program, your gift will appear each month on your bank statement or credit card. We will send you a calendar year-end tax receipt each January to aide in your tax preparations.
FLEXIBILITY. If for any reason you wish to increase, decrease, discontinue your gifts or change the credit card being charged, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist you.
Q. Does a smaller monthly recurring gift mean anything?

$5 per month = $60 annually
$10 per month = $120 annually
$25 per month = $300 annually
