Door-to-Door Fundraising

Door-to-Door Fundraising

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 GlobalFaces Direct to conduct door-to-door fundraising, and canvassers receive training to speak on our behalf. As part of the sign-up process with a canvasser, you can expect to receive a call from 833-955-8080 to complete your donation.

COVID-19 Update

The health and safety of our community and our canvassers is of utmost importance, and we have implemented safety measures to ensure that your interaction with our canvassers is contact-free. Canvassers wear PPE, maintain physical distance, and will securely enter your information into their tablets. We are closely monitoring developments and are adhering to public health guidelines.

Women’s College Hospital has been proud to respond nimbly to the incredible challenges of COVID-19, by opening our COVID-19 Assessment Centre, launching our LTC+ program to support our partners in long-term care, and reaching into the community with our mobile teams to test and vaccinate in hot-spot areas. We are grateful to our donors who help make our COVID-19 response possible.

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.

When signing up with a door-to-door fundraiser, your information will be captured securely on a tablet device and then confirmed via phone. To complete your donation, you will receive a call from 833-955-8080.

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.
