How can I make a donation?
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, you have the following options to make a donation to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation: online, by mail (cheque or credit card), or by phone at 514-345-4710.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept in-person donations at Foundation headquarters at this time, as our offices are closed until further notice. However, our team continues to give their all while working from home.

When will I receive my tax receipt?
The first thing you need to do is fill out a tax receipt form. You will be provided with a link to the form in the on-screen confirmation you receive at the end of the donation process, as well as in your email acknowledgement.
Your receipt will be emailed to you automatically as soon as your completed form is processed. If you have opted for monthly donations, an electronic receipt for the annual total will be sent to you at the beginning of the following year.
For other types of donations, we do our best to ensure that you have your tax receipt within two weeks of your donation being received. However, you can expect the process to take longer during the busiest times of year, such as Christmas and the end of the fiscal year.
Note that the email with your tax receipt may end up in your spam/junk folder. If you cannot track yours down, please call us at 514-345-4710 (toll-free: 1-888-235-3667) or email us at email@example.com.
Are all donations eligible for tax receipts?
The Foundation’s policy is to systematically issue tax receipts for donations of $20 or more made in person, by phone or by mail. For donations under $20 that were made in person, by phone or by mail, a tax receipt can be issued upon request. For gifts received via one of our digital platforms, a receipt will be emailed to you if you have filled out the tax receipt form.
Depending on your situation, you may be eligible to claim up to 50% of your contribution as a charitable tax credit. This credit is a non-refundable tax credit.
For more information, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency website.
Can I give to a person doing door-to-door fundraising for the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation or the CHU Sainte-Justine?
Unless otherwise indicated, the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation does not allow this type of fundraising, on its behalf or on behalf of the CHU Sainte-Justine.
Can I donate toys or gifts to children who are hospitalized at Sainte-Justine?
We are always grateful for such wonderful acts of kindness. Thank you for thinking of our kids.
Note that all presents must be approved in advance by Sainte-Justine. For more information, please refer to Sainte-Justine guidelines.
How can I become a volunteer at CHU Sainte-Justine?
We’re touched by your interest in and commitment to the CHU Sainte-Justine! Volunteering for Sainte-Justine is a very rewarding experience.
You can volunteer for the Foundation or for the hospital, or both. To do volunteer work at Sainte-Justine, a process and standards must be followed. Visit the CHU Sainte-Justine Become a Volunteer page to read it.
How do I go about organizing an event or online fundraiser benefiting Sainte-Justine?
Please be aware that, given the current COVID-19 situation and government restrictions, the Foundation is not allowing events that involve any kind of gathering until further notice.
Instead, the Foundation encourages you to organize an online fundraising event through its web platform. To begin, you’ll need to fill out the registration form to be approved by the Foundation’s team.
Once your activity has been approved, a member of our team will contact you with information on how to proceed.
If you would like to submit an idea for an in-person fundraising event at a later date, the first step is to fill out the registration form. After your application has been received and approved, a member of the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation team will gladly be in touch to guide you through the process.
Who should I contact if I want to stop or change my monthly donation?
For any questions or changes related to monthly donations, please contact Isabelle Loranger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 514-345-4931, ext. 2389.
To reduce your risk of credit card fraud, please refrain from sending your credit card number by email.
