The mission of Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is to help children and youth involved with the child welfare system access the resources and opportunities they need to thrive. Donating to the Foundation supports our programs that include mental health support, financial literacy training, education support and scholarships, employment training and community building programs for kids.

Donations can be accepted by credit card, PayPal or by sending a cheque to our office. And now, thanks to our trusted partner, the Foundation accepts Cryptocurrency (Bitcoin or Ether)!


What is cryptocurrency?

By definition, Cryptocurrency is a digital currency in which transactions are verified and records are maintained by a decentralized system using cryptography, rather than by a centralized authority. Currently, CanadaHelps is accepting Bitcoin and Ether as Crypto donations for Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada.

What is CanadaHelps?

CanadaHelps connects people to charities and provides online donation and fundraising tools that makes giving to charities simple. They maintain the industry’s lowest payment processing fees so your donation dollars work harder. CanadaHelps is a secure platform that is utilized and trusted by thousands of Canadian charities, including Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada.

Why donate with Cryptocurrency?

Donating with Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ether is becoming increasingly popular, especially with younger Canadian donors who are looking to support non-profits like Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether are attractive to donors because they are secure transactions. In addition, donors will receive a tax-receipt for a crypto donation.

Will I receive a tax-receipt for my crypto donation?

Yes, donors will receive a tax receipt by email through CanadaHelps once the Cryptocurrency donation is processed and the transaction has been finalized. The donation receipt reflects the exchange rate of the Cryptocurrency at the time it was sold. The amount disbursed to Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada reflects the actual price at the time of sale, less the non-commercial CanadaHelps fee.

What are the fees for donating Cryptocurrency through CanadaHelps?

A Crypto donation fee can range between 2.0% and 3.0%. Learn more about CanadaHelps’ breakdown of fees on their website.

What is the conversion value of Canadian dollars to Cryptocurrencies?

Like all currencies, the value of Canadian dollars to both Bitcoin and Ether can change on a daily basis. Through our CanadaHelps Crypto donation page, the conversion rate is displayed based on approximation only due to the fluctuating nature of the cryptocurrency market.

What is CanadaHelps Cryptocurrency policy?

CanadaHelps only accepts Bitcoin or Ether Cryptocurrency. Only pledges meeting the minimum donation amount of $100 will be accepted. Read CanadaHelps’ full Cryptocurrency policy on their website.
