About our fundraising partners
Since 2002, MSF has engaged fundraising canvassers and telemarketers who are committed to MSF’s work overseas to campaign on our behalf across Canada. These campaigns are a cost-effective way for MSF to reach Canadians across the country - to explain how they can help MSF deliver lifesaving medical relief as well as the benefits of monthly giving.
MSF works with Public Outreach, ONG Conseil, and Globalfaces Direct on our public fundraising campaigns, and with Fundraising Direct and Keys 360 Marketing for telefundraising. All are well-regarded agencies dedicated to building a sustainable charitable sector through ethically and socially responsible methods, and have gone through a rigorous evaluation to partner with, and represent, MSF.
In keeping with Imagine Canada’s Standards Program and best practices for fundraising, our canvassers receive an hourly wage and receive no commission for the supporters they sign up or the dollars they help raise.
For security reasons our canvassers are unable to accept cash donations.
How to identify MSF fundraisers
You can easily identify MSF fundraisers by their photo ID badge and MSF vest or shirt. They will often have a laminated brochure, or a binder with MSF’s logo and information.
Some MSF canvassers will be working with handheld devices (smartphones, or tablets) which allows them to securely process credit card transactions and capture bank information on the spot, reducing administrative costs and our use of paper forms.
Our fundraisers are involved in street and door-to-door canvassing. Sometimes you may meet our teams at a mall or airport as well.
Currently, we are canvassing in: Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, Vancouver and Edmonton.
