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

These campaigns are part of our wider fundraising efforts, and donations can be made safely and securely with the canvasser. Of course, donations can still be made through our website or by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Why does Calgary Health Foundation go door-to-door?
Door-to-door is a cost-effective way for the Calgary Health Foundation 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 our community. 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.
