Door to Door Fundraising

Door-to-door fundraising is a vital component of the Foundation’s efforts to support Mackenzie Health and Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital this year.

Through this program, beginning in April, we’re asking you and your neighbours to join Mackenzie Health Foundation’s Partners in Care Monthly Giving Program.

As a caring partner, your gift supports the areas of greatest need at Mackenzie Health, helping to bring exceptional care close to home for you, your family, friends and community.


Mackenzie Health Foundation has partnered with Appco Group to find new Partners. Appco Group 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 a pre-allocated fundraising budget when canvassing on behalf of Mackenzie Health Foundation.
How do I know a fundraiser is legitimate?

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

Why fundraise door-to-door?

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

Are Mackenzie Health Foundation fundraisers volunteers?

Mackenzie Health Foundation canvassers are compensated with an hourly wage and do not receive commissions. Fundraisers are paid through Appco Group. Mackenzie Health Foundation and Appco Group adhere to Imagine Canada’s Standards Program for charitable and non-profit organizations.
