Starting in 2019, Women’s College Hospital Foundation is conducting door to door campaigns around the Greater Toronto Area to increase awareness of the programs and vital mission of Women’s College Hospital, and to gain new supporters.
In keeping with Imagine Canada’s standards, our canvassers are paid an hourly wage, and do not receive commission for the supporters they acquire or the dollars they help raise. Women’s College Hospital Foundation has partnered with Public Outreach to conduct door to door fundraising, and canvassers receive training to speak on our behalf.
How do I identify a Women’s College Hospital Foundation canvasser?
All WCHF canvassers have an ID badge and wear a vest with our logo on the front and back. They also have some Women’s College Hospital materials and carry a handheld device (either a tablet or smartphone) to securely process donations.
Do canvassers accept cash donations?
No. For your security and for the safety of our canvassers, door to door representatives are not permitted to accept cash donations.
Is it safe to share my information with canvassers?
Yes. Personal information is securely collected on a handheld device that is equipped with encrypted software. Also, Women’s College Hospital Foundation will never trade, sell, or rent your name or contact information. Your personal information is used only for donor-related or tax receipting purposes.
I made a donation. Will I get a tax receipt?
Yes! Any gift you make over $10 will be issued a charitable contribution receipt. Monthly donors will get one receipt for all their donations this year in February of next year, in order to save your time and WCHF resources.
Give us a call or send an email and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
