Fundraising Programs by Telephone and at your Door

Mackenzie Health Foundation reaches out to the community in a variety of ways to secure funds.

Currently, Mackenzie Health Foundation IS NOT knocking on people’s doors or calling people on the telephone to ask for charitable support.  Right now, we do send solicitations by mail, email and we also have fundraising campaigns advertised on social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

All of our fundraising programs are vital components of the Foundation's efforts to enhance patient care at Mackenzie Richmond Hill and Cortellucci Vaughan Hospitals. Through these programs, we ask you and your neighbours to join us in our mission to enhance care in our community. With your financial support, we can purchase lifesaving equipment and advanced technology — items that are 100 per cent community funded — to help bring world-class care to Vaughan, Richmond Hill and King.

If you have any questions about these programs, please feel free to contact us.



Mackenzie Health Foundation partners with a professional fundraising agency. Their canvassers receive comprehensive training about the mission and work of Mackenzie Health so they can speak to you on our behalf. These canvassers are not on commission. They receive a daily rate from an allocated fundraising budget when canvassing on behalf of Mackenzie Health Foundation.

Fundraisers for Mackenzie Health Foundation will have identification badges and branded attire.

Door-to-door fundraising is one of the most effective and personal ways we can reach out to donors.

Mackenzie Health Foundation canvassers are compensated with an hourly wage and do not receive commissions. Fundraisers are paid through a professional fundraising agency. We both adhere to Imagine Canada's Standards Program for charitable and non-profit organizations. To learn more about Imagine Canada and its standards, please visit
