If you make a one-time donation via one of our forms, you will have the option to receive a charitable receipt upon completion of the transaction. In all cases, the Foundation sends a cumulative receipt of all charitable receipts at the beginning of the year following that of your donation (e.g. if you made your donation in May 2023, a charitable receipt will be given to you in January 2024).
If you make a recurring donation, you will have the option of receiving a cumulative receipt for all of your donations at the beginning of the year following the year of your donation.
If you have not selected the option to receive the receipt at the end of the donation form and would like to receive it, contact us and we will send the receipt to the email address used for the donation.

Facebook provides a payment receipt, but it is not tax deductible. Considering that Facebook does not send us the email addresses of donors, it is difficult for us to provide receipts to people who have donated via this platform.
If you donated on Facebook and would like a charitable receipt, please fill out the form on the Contact Us page indicating your postal address, the date and the amount of the donation.
Facebook (Meta) sends a payment receipt to an email address, but does not provide tax-deductible donation receipts for people who have contributed to a fundraiser on its platform.
If you or one of the contributors to your collection would like a tax receipt, please fill out the form on the Contact Us page or call our philanthropic development advisor, Coralie Massey-Cantin, at 514-272-2666, ext. 305.
