Uncollected Pledges

If someone has pledged to support you and you've not yet received their donation, please contact them soon. Remind them of their pledge, and ask for it as soon as possible, keeping in mind that the deadline for submitting the money is October 31, 2016.

Entering Pledges Online

Before sending us a cheque in the mail or paying a donation online with your own credit card, you must enter the pledge into your online fundraising system. Here's how:

  • Log in to your personal page
  • On the left, click "Fundraising"
  • Then, on the left, click "Enter $$ or Cheques"

On this page, enter your cash or cheque donors one by one - be sure to enter all mailing address information and email address where applicable. We must have the donor's full address in order to issue a tax receipt.

To pay a pledge with your own credit card, scroll to the bottom of the "Enter $$ or Cheques" page and click "Pay" next to the pledge you'd like to pay in. You can then use your credit card to pay the pledge, and your donor will receive their tax receipt immediately.
