For Supporters Ethical Fundraising

Ethical Fundraising

Committed to respecting donors’ privacy

At Kids Cancer Care, we are committed to ethical fundraising practices that respect donors’ rights to privacy and truthful information. We responsibly manage the funds that our donors entrust to us in support of kids and families affected by cancer, and report financial affairs accurately and completely.

Kids Cancer Care NEVER employs telemarketing companies to raise money. We are fortunate to have a generous community of supporters that give in person, through the mail, and online.

The following links provide additional information about some of your rights and benefits as a donor to charitable organizations. We hope you find them helpful.

  • The Charities Directorate on the website of Canada Revenue Agency provides information to donors on tax savings, donation receipts, the regulation of charities and how to be better informed as a donor. The website includes an online, searchable list of Canadian charities, granting access to donors to research them.
  • Service Alberta provides information to Alberta donors, charitable organizations and fundraising businesses. The site provides information on the laws protecting donors, donation receipts and tips for donating in Alberta. Albertans may also search the site to learn if a charitable organization is registered and authorized to fundraise in Alberta.
