FAQ Donation


What does my donation support?

Is my gift tax deductible?

Once you complete an online donation, you will receive an email that includes the necessary tax information, so make sure to save this correspondence for your records.Who do I contact if I have a question or problem making an online donation?

If you have questions about your donation, please send us an email at info@womanofwonder.org, or call us at 360-524-3189.

Is my online transaction secure when I donate to Woman of Wonder scholarships?

Yes. Simply said, using PayPal is safe.

Here’s the more complex answer.

PayPal uses Secure Sockets Layer 3.0 (SSL) to encrypt data. When you click the PayPal button on our site and log on to PayPal, PayPal verifies that your internet browser is running Secure Sockets Layer 3.0 (SSL) — or higher. The data processed is protected by SSL with an encryption key length of 168 bits (the highest level commercially available). PayPal servers are heavily guarded, both physically and electronically. To further shield your credit card and bank numbers, PayPal does not directly connect their firewall-protected servers to the internet.

In general, whenever you are making a payment or donation online, make sure you check the web address in your browser to insure your browser is connected to a secure server. You’ll know it’s secure when you see a locked padlock.

Why does my credit card statement say, “PayPal *WOMANWONDER?”

When you use our online donation process, it goes through the secure servers at PayPal.

Can I make a donation by mail?

Yes, you can mail your donation check to:

Woman of Wonder

Is Wilma A. Doane still living?

Yes! Wilma continues to share her wisdom and ideas in ways so subtle you'll think the great idea was yours all along. Her comforting and inspirational letters are still received by members of First Presbyterian Church Vancouver where she continues volunteer work as a Deacon, eTeam member (Exploring Faith, Embracing Hope, Extending Love), Opportunity Board operator, devotional writer, new member mentor, concert organizer, and church history researcher. 

And many other tasks she does quietly without acclaim - only to do good.
