Frequently Asked Questions

Does it cost extra to customize my card/eCard?

No, all customizations are included in the cost of the card.

What will my donation support at SickKids?

Unless you direct your donation to a specific area of purpose, your donation will be considered unrestricted, which gives us the flexibility to deploy funds in the areas of greatest need. We can’t predict where we will need funds down the road, nor can we know what research, projects, or funding will be underway when a donation is received.

I’m not comfortable ordering online. Can I order over the phone and send in cash or a cheque?

Yes, please contact our Donor Care Team toll free at 1-800-661-1083 or at 416-813-6166. Please note, your order will not be processed until payment has been received. 

Please make cheques payable to: SickKids Foundation

Will I receive a tax receipt for my donation?

Yes, you will receive a tax receipt for the donation portion of your order. For example, if you order $20.00 worth of cards, and make a $50.00 donation (total order value of $70.00), you will receive a tax receipt for $50.00. Your tax receipt and order confirmation will be sent via email shortly after placing your order.

If you have not received your tax receipt within 2 hours or have questions regarding tax receipts, please contact our Donor Care Team toll free at 1-800-661-1083, 416-813-6166 or submit an inquiry online.
