Useful information

  • Do not use the browser’s back and forward buttons. Instead, use the NEXT and PREVIOUS buttons within the e-Pledge site. Using the browser navigation buttons may accidentally cancel out your donation and you many need to start all over.
  • Tax receipts are mailed during tax time (Jan-Apr) and unless you approve to receive the tax receipt via email, they will be sent to your home address.
  • Before you designate your donation, if you choose to do so, please ensure you know the agency’s Canadian Registered Charitable Number. You will not be able to designate without it and the designation will be void if it is missing.
