For the last few years, QFHSA has been offering an opportunity to donate to QFHSA under our CanadaHelps account as designated fund. This enables Home and School members to make online donations to support our Literacy activities, Youth Exploring Science and our Fall Conference Program. The advantage to members is that CanadaHelps issues the charitable tax receipt immediately, minus a 3.9% administration fee.
How it works: A member decides to make a donation to QFHSA and goes to the www.qfhsa.org site and clicks on the Donate now button. Once on the site, they select the fund to which they wish to make a contribution and enter an amount. (The minimum donation that can be made through CanadaHelps is $3.90) Once complete, they will receive an acknowledgement from CanadaHelps and the charitable tax receipt, electronically. A message of thanks will be sent from QFHSA.
This is an excellent option for members who wish to support the provincial association and all the work that we do.
