Sponsorship form for non paypal payments here
Overseas contributions must allow for the Australian Exchange Rate and Bank Fees (which is 2.5% per deposit). Paypal is recommended for overseas sponsors, as the cost is usually much less than other methods. All contributions can as far ahead as you like… we have a couple of sponsors who are 10 years ahead!
Whichever payment method you choose, please remember to ONLY use your YOUR NAME AND SPONSOR NUMBER (not your sponsees name or anything else at all). We need your name and sponsor number in order to identify each payment.
Direct Debit and Net Banking
The name of the account is Tibetan Sponsorship Schemes and the bank is BankSa and Account No. 147865240 BSB 105-032. Contributions are sent to India twice a year, in January and July, therefore debits need to be received before 1st June and 1st December, so that I have time to process your deposit. You may either be a month or more ahead, or debit before the due date (1st June and December). You can pay $10 a month (or any amount in $10 increments) and you can be as far ahead with payments as you like. To help identify you on our bank statement, as the reference, could you please use the name you are sponsoring under, and if there is room, you can add your sponsor number which is sent with the confirming letter and also found on the annual receipt. It is helpful if you could please email me with the date and amount of the first payment, so that I can check that it did come out correctly on our receipt.
