Major Gifts

CHF asks certain donors for leadership gifts of $1,000 or more to support specific projects. Some major gift donors support the same project for many years by way of a multi-year pledge, or by joining CHF Ambassadors monthly giving club.

For more information, contact Janet Cater, Manager of Fundraising, 1 (866) 242-4243.

Benefits
  • You receive substantial tax benefits.
  • CHF will provide significant recognition to you or your company/organization.

Matching Gifts

Many companies match the donation amount contributed by their employees to charitable organizatons. Check with your human resources department to see if your employer has a matching gift policy — it could double your gift contribution. Plus, your donation to CHF will then be matched 2 to 1 by CIDA. So a $50 gift results in a total donation of $300 to CHF’s projects.

Benefits
  • You are able to leverage your donation by receiving a matching contribution from your employer.
