Once you make an online donation, you will receive an email confirmation message with an attached electronic tax receipt.
If you do not receive an email confirmation shortly after completing your donation, please check your junk / spam mail folders or contact us at 416-929-9614 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your receipt will be e-mailed to the email address you provide, or mailed to the mailing address you stipulate.
One-time donors will get a receipt by mail shortly after they make their donation. Monthly donors receive a consolidated receipt for all the gifts they have made in a year, which will be either mailed or emailed before the end of February of the following year, as mandated by Canada Revenue Agency regulations.
If you make more than one donation in a year, you have a choice of receiving a receipt after each gift or one consolidated receipt for all gifts in a given year. Please contact Donor Services at 416-929-9614 or email@example.com to change your receipt arrangement.
We strive to be accountable and efficient with our mailings. Mail is a significant source of gifts from our generous donors; without such gifts, we would be unable to continue to serve the rising numbers of neighbours in need.
If you would like to increase or change the amount of mail you receive, please contact us at 416-929-9614. Please note changes may require 8-10 weeks to take effect, and you may still receive an additional mailing or two after decreasing or halting the mailings you are to receive, due to the production timelines for our letters
