As always, we are available during normal operating hours to assist with any questions or concerns you might have, but due to the circumstances, we may not be able to answer your call or email immediately, and requests for printed tax receipts will take longer than usual. Please know that we are grateful for your ongoing support through this difficult time.

Monthly giving provides an easy, convenient and cost-effective way to help those living with mental illness. Change Agents provide consistent and reliable funds toward the most urgent needs of the hospital–helping improve the quality of care provided at CAMH, and to develop the next generation of treatments. But being a Change Agent is more than just a monthly gift. It’s a commitment to stopping mental illness from destroying lives. It is speaking up for those who can’t and shattering the stigma around mental illness. It’s a message of hope to everyone affected that they will always have the support they need to transform their lives for the better. Become a Change Agent today!
CAMH Foundation representatives are looking for people to join our Change Agents community of monthly donors. All canvassers are equipped with tablets, and will be wearing CAMH lanyards and ID badges. Please note for security reasons, they cannot accept cash donations.

You will receive an accumulative tax receipt for the year in February of the following year i.e. all gifts made in 2017 will be included in the receipt sent in February 2018. Your receipt will be emailed if you have provided an address. If not, you will receive your tax receipt by regular mail.
CAMH Foundation may try to reprocess your monthly gift after your scheduled processing date. To update your payment information please contact CAMH Foundation at 1 800 414-0471 during business hours (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), or by email at ChangeAgents@camh.ca.
Under the provisions of Payments Canada’s Rule H1, if a PAD is returned due to insufficient funds, CAMH Foundation may re-attempt to process the payment once, and this must be done within 30 days of the original transaction date for the same amount as the original transaction. CAMH Foundation cannot charge service fees.
Payments Canada’s mandate does not extend to service fees that may be charged by financial institutions, so this is not addressed in Rule H1. You will need to discuss the matter with your financial institution. In accordance with CRA regulations, under no circumstance can CAMH reimburse you for NSF fees charged by your financial institution.
To change your monthly gift amount or payment information, please contact CAMH Foundation at 1 800 414-0471 during business hours (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), or by email at ChangeAgents@camh.ca 15 days before the next processing date. To change the bank account for your monthly gift, you can also provide a blank cheque to confirm the new account details. Be sure to write “VOID” on the front of it, and do not sign it. Submit the void cheque to the Foundation 15 days before the processing date. The address for CAMH Foundation is: 100 Stokes Street, 5th Floor, Bell Gateway Building, Toronto, ON, M6J 1H4.
We do mail supporters who have missed a payment or whose payment information is expiring. If you have any concerns about a piece of mail that you receive from CAMH Foundation, please contact us at 1 800 414-0471 during business hours or by email at ChangeAgents@camh.ca.
There is no automatic end date to a monthly gift.
