Sign In

Simply click the Sign In button located at the top right hand corner of every page of our Website.

If you also have a personal account for making your own donations or creating and managing fundraising pages (formerly called GivingPages), enter your email and password at the Sign In prompt.

Assigning categories and sub-categories, as well a scope of mission to your charity will help your charity get discovered by donors interested in your work using our search filters. This feature will be available in your charity account under the Profile tab in the coming weeks.

Thank You
Saying Thank You is important for building loyal relationships with your donors, and now it’s easier than ever! To thank your donors right from your CanadaHelps account, simply:
  1. Sign in to your CanadaHelps charity account.
  2. Go to the Donations tab.
  3. Click the envelope next to each donation, write your message in the text box, and click Send.

A faded envelope appears next to donors who have been thanked and you can always view previously sent messages by clicking the envelope. Your personalized message will be sent directly to the recipient’s email inbox.

NOTE: You can only send a Thank You to those donors who have shared their contact information with you.

Tip: This is a great time to encourage donors to follow your charity’s latest endeavours. Social media, website updates and email newsletters are a few great ways to keep donors updated. Donors love to know how they are helping to make a difference!

General fund

Many charities requested that we make it possible to tie a specific fund to a Fundraising Page (formerly called GivingPages), as well as to charity Campaign pages. With the new site, that’s now possible. To accomplish this, we needed to ensure all charities have a minimum of one fund so we introduced the General fund, a fund that cannot be removed.

Please note, we are currently working to address an issue related to funds so that only English fund names will appear when on our English site and French fund names when on our French site. In the coming weeks, you will also be able to edit and add descriptions to your funds.

Next month, we plan to introduce a new feature to allow charities to define which funds are visible to donors making a donation from your charity profile page on CanadaHelps or creating a Fundraising Page in support of your charity.
