If you made the donation with PayPal Giving Fund Canada, Facebook, or GoFundMe:

All donations made to PayPal Giving Fund Canada are eligible for donation receipts (there is no minimum donation amount).

Please check your email inbox for your receipt after submitting your donation. You may also receive a separate transaction receipt via email, in addition to your official donation receipt. For tax purposes, you will need to use the official donation receipt. It will include the name and mailing address on your PayPal account as this is required by the Canada Revenue Agency. In order to make sure that this is correct on the donation receipt, please make sure your PayPal account has the correct personal information before making donations.

Did you make a donation through a Facebook fundraiser? If so, Facebook will email your donation receipt issued by PayPal Giving Fund Canada to your Facebook-registered email address. You will not receive a separate donation receipt emailed from PayPal Giving Fund Canada.

Please contact PayPal Giving Fund Canada if you have questions about the receipt.


If you made the donation with CanadaHelps:

For one-time donations, CanadaHelps automatically emails tax receipts to the donor once the donation has been successfully processed.

For monthly donations, CanadaHelps does not instantly issue tax receipts. Donors are able to go into their account and generate their tax receipt whenever they’d like. At the very latest, their tax receipt will be generated at beginning of the follow calendar year and can be found in their account.

If a monthly donor has chosen to have their tax receipts aggregated, no instant tax receipt will be issued.

Please contact CanadaHelps if you have questions about the receipt.
