The easiest way to do this is to make an online donation to your own fundraising page using your credit card. The total amount will then show up on your page.

If you would rather pay in your offline donations by cheque or bank deposit, then please download and print the offline donation form, fill out all the required fields, and mail it back to us us along with any receipts. We will then update your fundraising page with all your offline donations.
