SPONSORING A PARTICIPANT

How do I make a donation that will go towards a specific player's goal?

Search for the person you would like to support on the "Support a Participant" page. Enter their first or last name and click 'Search' button. Click on the name of the person in your Search results. You will be directed to their personal fundraising page. Click the 'Donate Now' button and fill in the donation form.

Will I get a tax receipt?

St. Michael's Foundation issues tax receipts for donations of $20 or more. If you don't receive your tax receipt via email within 24 hours of making your donation, check your junk mail folder in case the message is delivered there by mistake. If you don't find your tax receipt in your spam folder, please contact the Foundation and they'll get back to you soon.

ATTENDING THE EVENT

How do I buy a ticket?

A donation of $10 is one ticket, $20 is two tickets, etc.


Search for the person you would like to support on the "Support a Participant" page. Enter their first or last name and click 'Search' button. Click the name of the person in your Search results. You'll be directed to their personal fundraising page. Click the 'Donate Now' button and fill in the donation form.

Once you have found the friend you want to support, pay your admission fee on their personal fundraising page so the price of your admission will go towards their fundraising goal!

Do I need a physical ticket?

We'll have a list of all donors at the door, so no need for a physical ticket if you're a donor.

If you plan to bring guests, please email your friends' names to Brittany Freeman at FreemanBr@smh.ca to add them to the guest list. For example, if you donate $100, you may come to the event and bring nine friends, provided you add them to the guest list in advance.

Can I pay at the door?

Absolutely! If you'd like to come to watch and haven't bought a ticket in advance, no problem. Price of admission is $10, but if you'd like to make a gift of at least $20, you will get a charitable tax receipt.

MY FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

How can I keep track of how much I've raised?

It's easy to keep track of who you've asked for money on your personal fundraising page. Simply login to the site (you can request your username and password if you forget it), and you can upload your contacts, send either the email we've drafted for you or write one yourself, and then wait to see how many of your contacts donate! The Contact Records section keeps track of everything for you: when you sent the email to each contact; whether or not they've given; if / when you send a follow up email; and if they gave, whether or not you've sent a thank you. It's all pretty much done for you!
 

Where does the money I raise go?

This year the Young Leaders will be supporting St. Michael's top priorities to improve patient care throughout the hospital. 

Where can I get help with my fundraising page?

Try the 'Help' link in your Dodger Participant Centre for detailed instructions on doing just about everything you can do with a fundraising page.

There's also a general FAQ page about fundraising online for St. Michael's you may want to check out.
