E-cards are sent directly to a recipients inbox, on the designated send date, and will remain active as long as the recipient does not delete the email.
Will I receive a tax receipt?
If the charity you've chosen is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), you will be issued a tax receipt for your donation by email within 24 hours of your purchase.
Why is giving my email address mandatory?
Providing your email address allows us to reduce our administrative costs, eliminates tax-receipting errors and ensures that you get your electronic tax receipt within 24 hours.

What are the fees for charities using this site?
Charities are charged a small annual fee and transaction fee. This is a small fraction of what it would cost a charity to set up their own online gift catalogue. Our goal is to make it possible for charities of all sizes to be able to fundraise more effectively.
How do I know that the charity will get my donation?
All donations are automatically transferred directly into your chosen charity's bank account through our secure credit card processing system.
How can I be sure that the charity will use my donation to purchase the gift I have chosen?
CharityGiftBag.org strongly recommends that charities on this site be fully accountable to their donors and use all donations as intended. It is up to each charity to ensure that the funds are used for the purpose designated. CharityGiftBag.org has expert advisors available to charities on accounting for designated gifts.
