Calgary Health Trust in your neighbourhood

These monthly donors provide critical, unrestricted funding to create impact where it’s most needed now and where it’s needed next. Whether it is funding cutting-edge equipment for Calgary’s acute care hospitals or improving quality of life for patients, this is the best way for individuals to donate dependable funds to help purchase vital equipment and plan for long-term projects.

Calgary Health Trust is partnered with Global Faces Direct, Canada’s premiere leader in door to door fundraising. Our canvassers are compensated through an hourly wage with no commission. They receive comprehensive training, which allows them to speak on behalf of Calgary Health Trust about our mission and fundraising program.

Door-to-Door Fundraising Measures:
This donor campaign is one of many fundraising campaigns held by the Calgary Health Trust and the roll-out plans are in alignment with the province’s phase two relaunch requirements.

Canvassers will be dressed in Calgary Health Trust branded clothing and will wear an ID badge identifying themselves. In compliance with provincial requirements, canvassers have taken necessary precautions to ensure the safety of themselves and the public. This includes the use of personal protective equipment, appropriate social distancing measures and no physical marketing materials will be used.

Donors will not be asked to sign anything and donations will be confirmed over the phone. If at any point donors are uncomfortable providing financial information during the call, they can make a gift through the organization’s website or call the Calgary Health Trust office directly to confirm their commitment.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why does Calgary Health Trust go door-to-door?

Door-to-door is a cost-effective way for the Calgary Health Trust to reach a new demographic of donors that we would not reach otherwise. By coming face to face with our prospective donors, our fundraisers are able to engage in rich dialogue about the impact philanthropy has in transforming health care for Calgarians. Our hope is that more Calgarians become aware of how they can help us grow and sustain our mission to save lives and make world class health care possible.

How can I be sure this fundraiser is legitimate?

Calgary Health Trust fundraisers should have a prominently displayed identification tag and have a good knowledge about the main priorities funded by the Calgary Health Trust.  Our fundraisers also carry a tablet to securely capture donor data. They do not ask for nor accept cash donations.

Are your fundraisers paid or volunteers?

Calgary Health Trust fundraisers are compensated hourly for their efforts. Calgary Health Trust adheres to the guidelines set out by Imagine Canada. To learn more about Imagine Canada please visit: http://www.imaginecanada.ca 

Why does my donation have to be verified by phone?

Why can I not make a cash or one time gift to the fundraiser?

For safety reasons we do not allow our fundraisers to accept or carry cash donations.  If you want to make a one-time gift you can do so by visiting our online donation page here.

Is my banking and credit card information safe?

Yes. All data that is captured is encrypted in real time and processed in a compliant environment according to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.  No data is stored on the tablet nor is it shared with anyone. This is a safe and accurate way to acquire credit card payment and reduce administrative costs, human error and eliminate data loss.
