Donations

How do I make an anonymous donation?

If you would like your name to remain anonymous on the website, but for the participant you are supporting to see your name, write “Anonymous” in the “Public name to appear on participant’s page” box.

If you would like your name to remain anonymous on the website AND to the participant you are supporting, check the “I'd like my name to remain anonymous to the participant I’m supporting” box.

Can friends and family make a donation to a participant by clicking through the main website?

They sure can! On the home page of the website, friends and family can search for a participant or volunteer using the “Find a participant/team” search box at the top right-hand corner of the homepage. Alternatively, they can click on the “Donate” button and use the “Search for a Fundraiser” search box. By searching the name of the participant, they will be directed to the participant’s Personal Page, and from there they can click to support that participant.

How can I see who has donated to me?

You will automatically receive an email notifying you when a donation has been made if you chose to accept emails from us upon sign up. You can also log in to your participant dashboard, click on the "My Donations" button, and you will be able to view your donor list and the amounts that have been donated.

How do I donate online?

Donating online couldn't be easier with our secure online process. You’re just one click away with the ‘Donate’ button at the top of this page or in the menu on mobile. Select the participant you want to donate to using the search function, then choose a donation amount and follow the instructions. All donations made online will receive an automatic tax receipt via email.

How do I donate by mail?

Just mail in your cheque donation (we cannot accept cash by mail). Each donation must have a completed donation form. that has the full name of the participant or volunteer you are sponsoring.

Please make sure to mail both items to the address indicated at the upper left corner of your donation form. You can also receive a form by calling our office at 416-445-3377 or emailing info@getloudforsickkids.ca and we’ll mail or email a copy to you. You will receive a tax receipt by email if your form includes a valid email address, or by mail if not. Please note, a valid mailing address is required by CRA to be eligible to receive a tax receipt.

For pooled funds (gifts collected from a group of individuals and donated as one lump sum) tax receipts cannot be issued. Please see FAQ “I have a sum of cash that I have received from a group of donors, can I receive a tax receipt?” for further information.

How do you keep information (like my credit card number) safe?

The software we use for donations on the website uses industry-standard SSL encryption techniques so your credit card information, passwords, and personal information travel securely over the internet. An encryption engine on our database server has also been installed by our software provider, so your information is always safe with us. No credit card information is ever stored in our database or by our software providers.

What should I do if I receive a cash donation?

You can make the donation online on the donor’s behalf using your own credit card. Log into your participant dashboard and click “My Donations” then “Add Offline Donation”. Ensure you have each donor’s correct name, mailing address and email address. In order for CRA to issue a tax receipt, you must provide the donors mailing address.  

Alternatively, you can write a cheque for the donation amount and mail it in with your donation form(s). Just be sure to enter the donor’s information on the donation form(s). You can write out one cheque covering multiple donations, provided each donation amount is very clearly indicated on each donation form.

If you have received cash from multiple individuals and you are processing it as one lump sum, for example, from a Garage Sale, please be aware that if you process it online, the system generated receipt is not valid under CRA guidelines. We recommend mailing in a cheque and donation form in these cases and indicating NO RECEIPT.

Where are offline donation forms found?

The donation form can be found here. If you’re a participant, you can print them out directly from your Personal Page and hand them out to people who want to mail in their donations. If you prefer, you can call our office at 416-445-3377 or email info@getloudforsickkids.ca and we’ll mail or email you one.

I have a sum of cash that I have received from a group of donors, can I receive a tax receipt?

Tax receipts are automatically issued for online donations made through our website, but under CRA guidelines, gifts collected from a group of individuals that are donated as a lump sum ("pooled funds") are not eligible for a tax receipt. If you enter a sum of donations online that you have collected from a group, the generated receipt is illegal, and the use of this receipt for income tax purposes could have serious consequences with the CRA. If we come across a donation that is obviously pooled funds, and a receipt has been issued, we will notify you and void the receipt.

To ensure a tax receipt is not issued for a gift of pooled funds, you can send a cheque covering the amount to us by mail, along with a donation form, found here. Be sure to check the "NO RECEIPT" box on the form.

Will I or my donors receive a tax receipt?

Yes, tax receipts will be provided for offline donations of $20 or more. All donations made online for any amount will receive an automatic tax receipt via email.

If you are entering a donation on your donor’s behalf, ensure that you have their correct name and mailing address.

If you are entering a donation that represents a sum of funds you have received from a group of donors, for example proceeds from an event or bake sale, please see the FAQ "I have a sum of cash that I have received from a group of donors, can I receive a tax receipt?" to learn more about how to opt out of receiving a receipt.

How do I change the name of one of the donors on my personal page?

Simply call us at 416-445-3377 or email us at info@getloudforsickkids.ca with the revised information and we will update this information for you.

Facebook Fundraisers

Facebook may prompt you to create a Facebook Fundraiser for SickKids GetLoud.

As such, it is important to NOT USE one for your GetLoud fundraising. This includes adding a "Donate" button to your Facebook page.

As this is a Facebook feature, we cannot prevent the prompt from appearing on your Facebook page. When prompted, simply select the “X” in the top right corner to remove the prompt. If you have set up a Facebook Fundraiser, please deactivate it immediately. Fundraising on social media is still strongly encouraged and should be done so by sharing your personal page from your participant dashboard, or by simply pasting your page link into a new post. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience and are happy to answer any questions regarding Facebook Fundraising.

Be sure to select "SickKids GetLoud" as the charity event, and provide us the full name of the participant you are supporting in the notes section, so we can attribute the donation to the correct participant. It can take up to 4 weeks for funds submitted through Benevity to be received by SickKids Foundation and attributed to the correct GetLoud fundraising page.

Volunteering

Do I need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to volunteer at GetLoud?

Health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic has been our top priority. As a member of the broader SickKids Hospital community, it is imperative that we do our part to protect all those carrying out activities on SickKids related premises. 

SickKids Foundation requires all GetLoud staff, vendors, and volunteers attending the event to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (a mix of at least 2 accepted vaccines or at least 1 dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson), with the exception of those with a validly documented medical or human rights exemption which must be provided to SickKids Foundation in advance. Proof of vaccination is required even if that exceeds the minimum government and public health guidelines. Proof of vaccination along with a government issued ID will be required upon check-in. By registering to volunteer, you agree to comply with this policy.

Can I request to volunteer with friends or family?

What do I do if I contract COVID-19 close to the event day?

We hope this doesn’t happen but if it does, we ask all event participants and volunteers to not attend the event if they:

Will face masks be enforced at the event?

If at the time of the event, face masks are not required at events as per government and public health rules and regulations, then they will not be required.

What are the cleaning measures taken onsite?

All food & beverage services will fully comply with City of Toronto Public Health and Ministry of Health agencies guidance and direction on safe service practices and physical distancing measures. There will be frequent cleaning and sanitation of all high touch surfaces and areas. Hand sanitizer will be provided at entrance/exit points.

Is the registration fee refundable if the event is cancelled?
