FAQs

Offline Donations

What do I do with cash and cheque donations that I have received?

If you have registered online, we encourage you to download the pre-populated donation forms with your personal information from your Fundraising Centre.

If you’ve registered offline, you can download blank donation forms from your Run site page.

Cash and cheque donations must be deposited at CIBC banking centres and you must have your donation form stamped. DO NOT leave your form(s) at the CIBC banking centre, and please make copies of your forms for your records.

Bring your bank stamped form(s) to t-shirt pick-up, Run day, or mail them to:

Canadian Cancer Society
Attn: Gift Processing Department
5826 South St.
Halifax, NS
B3H 1S6

If you did not take your cash or cheque donations to the bank, please bring the donations and forms with you to the registration area on Run day.

What do I do with my credit card donations?

You can process your credit card donations online. Or, record the credit card information (i.e. valid credit card number and expiry date), donation amount(s) and complete donor information on a donation form. Forms can be submitted at t-shirt pick-up, on Run day, or by mail to:

Canadian Cancer Society
Attn: Gift Processing Department
5826 South St.
Halifax, NS
B3H 1S6

Can I take my credit card donations to CIBC for processing?

No, CIBC does not process credit card donations. Please submit the credit card donation(s) on Run day or mail it to:

Canadian Cancer Society

How do I submit in-person/offline donations?

In-person/offline donations (donations not paid online) will be officially counted as part of your fundraising when they are received by the Canadian Cancer Society.

You can submit your in-person donations 2 ways:

  1. Bring them to any CIBC branch. The money will be deposited into the account listed on your donation form and CIBC will stamp and return your form(s). You can submit your bank stamped forms on Run day for data entry, tax receipting, and Fundraising Rewards redemption purposes.
  2. Mail your donations - (cheques and credit card numbers are fine, but do not send cash in the mail). The mailing address is:

    Canadian Cancer Society
    Attn: Gift Processing Department
    5826 South St.
    Halifax, NS
    B3H 1S6

How long will it take before my donations are posted to my account?

Online donations will be reflected automatically once a donation is made and completed.
Offline donations will be entered weekly starting the first week of October. Offline donations made through CIBC branch locations are processed once the bank stamped donation forms are received by the Canadian Cancer Society. Therefore, you must retain your forms from CIBC and submit it on Run or, mail it to Society:

Canadian Cancer Society
Attn: Gift Processing Department
5826 South St.
Halifax, NS
B3H 1S6

Due to the number of participants partaking in the CIBC Run for the Cure across the country, this process could take until the end of January 2019 to process, depending on when your forms were submitted

Can I make a donation if I’m not participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure?

Absolutely. Donate online or at CIBC banking centres across Canada. To make a donation at CIBC, download a donation form from the website and record your name, address, and donation amount on a donation form. CIBC will accept your donation and a teller will stamp the form and return it to you. To get a tax receipt, mail the stamped donation form to:

Canadian Cancer Society
Attn: Gift Processing Department

Halifax, NS
