Safety During the Holidays: charitable donations

December 3, 2018

Making donations to canvassers
for charities.
• Ask for legitimate identification – only donate to registered charities.
• Contact the Canada Revenue Agency to see if the charity is registered at
http://www.cra‐arc.gc.ca/charities/
• If you are approached by someone suspicious, call police
• Do not feel pressure to donate right away – ask for information on how you
can donate at a later time
