Can I get a Charitable Donation Receipt for my purchase?

All online fighter sponsorships and donations are processed directly through the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, and donors should receive their receipts immediately by email. Please note the following for all other purchases:

Charitable Donations – Fighters’ personal goals are funds directly collected by the foundation and supporters will receive a charitable donation receipt. We cannot use these funds for advertising, otherwise it would mean they are not donations.

Advertising Sponsorship – Sponsorship is purchased advertising. These purchases are taxable and receive business receipts, helping us execute the event, thus allowing donated funds to the PMCF to grow larger. No charitable donation receipts are issued for this, as the purchaser is receiving a product in exchange for their donated funds.

AMBASSADORS/DONATIONS

I would like to start my own FTEC Campaign. What are my options?

Our annual gala is just one part of the yearlong fundraising initiatives executed by Fight To End Cancer. Our Annual Boxing Gala continues to be the “Main Event” celebration of our fundraising efforts; however, we are expanding our Corporate Fundraising Teams and our Community Ambassador Programs. This opens the doors to allow anyone to join us in the Fight To End Cancer. We are all a part of the fight… Defeat Is NOT An Option
