Why does St. Michael’s Foundation conduct door-to-door and street marketing campaigns?
From time to time, St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation is out in the community, talking to people in their homes, in shopping malls and in other public spaces. It’s a great way for us to tell our story and inspire new monthly donors to join the St. Michael’s community.
Monthly donors provide a sustainable source of revenue that support the most urgent needs of the hospital.
We partner with Up Fundraising to carry out these campaigns. Each canvasser receives comprehensive training about the mission and work of St. Michael’s so that they can speak knowledgeably, in compliance with all applicable laws. These canvassers are not on commission. They receive an hourly wage for the time they spend fundraising on behalf of St. Michael’s. We expect that all of our fundraisers are professional, courteous and well-versed about St. Michael’s.
How do I know that a canvasser is legitimate?
Fundraisers for St. Michael’s will have:
• Identification badges and branded attire
• Brochures with the St. Michael’s Foundation logo, phone number and website address, along with our charitable registration number
Are St. Michael’s canvassers volunteers?
St. Michael’s canvassers receive an hourly wage and do not receive commissions. Fundraisers are paid through Up Fundraising, a separate company hired by St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation. We adhere to Imagine Canada’s Standards Program for charitable and nonprofit organizations. To learn more about Imagine Canada and its standards, please visit imaginecanada.ca.
Why can’t I make a cash donation at the door?
For safety reasons, we do not allow our canvassers to accept or carry cash donations. If you are interested in making a donation, please use our online donation form or contact the Foundation at 416.864.5000.
Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
We issue tax receipts for all donations of $20 or more. If you made your donation online, you will receive your donation receipt by e-mail as an attached PDF. If you made your donation through mail, phone or in person, and didn’t specify how you would like to receive your donation receipt, you will receive it by mail.
Monthly donors will receive their donation receipts in February for all donations made in the previous calendar year.
How long will it take to receive my donation receipt by mail?
