  • Do you have any suggestions that will help me be a successful fundraiser?
    There are many ways to raise funds successfully and have fun in the process. You can share your reason for participating — you’ll be surprised by how many people will support your personal story.

    Another idea is to start a team — fundraising as a group can be exciting and motivational. It’s also a great way to achieve a significant fundraising goal.

    For more helpful tips, information and ideas, you can check out our Fundraising tools.
  • How will the money I raise be used?
    One in two youth struggle with their mental health alone. The issues young people reach out about are more complex than ever before and compounding over time. 
    By supporting Kids Help Phone, you can show young people there's a place for them to Feel Out Loud.

Tax receipts

  • How do people who support me receive tax receipts?
    People who support a participant online will receive an official tax receipt by email within 24 hours.

    For those who support your goal in person (by cash, cheque or credit card, as indicated on your paper pledge form), an official tax receipt will be issued by Kids Help Phone in the Fall according to the information provided on that form.

    To submit your pledge form, please mail it to:
    Kids Help Phone
    200-439 University Ave
    Toronto, ON M5G 1Y8

    Please note: In order for tax receipts to be issued, full names and complete addresses must be provided.
  • If I donate to myself, will I get a tax receipt?
    If you make a self-donation you will receive a tax receipt, however this may affect your incentive prize (if applicable).
    In accordance with CRA guidelines, the self-donation can not help you get to a new incentive level. If it does, Kids Help Phone has to issue the lower incentive prize based on the what is raised without the self-donation included.
    For example, Joe donated $20 to his Walk page and received a tax receipt. At the end of the event, Joe raised an overall total of $500. Because Joe donated $20 to himself and received a tax receipt, the $20 cannot count towards his incentive. He therefore would be eligible to receive a $25 incentive prize, even though it seems he qualifies for the $50 prize.
