Electronic tax receipts for online donations

The Lung Association is pleased to issue electronic tax receipts for online donations. These e-receipts are approved by Canada Revenue Agency.

How will I get my e-receipt, and what do I do with it?

  •     The e-receipt will be sent to your e-mail address within 24 hours of your donation.
  •     The receipt will be in unalterable PDF format, as per Canada Revenue Agency regulations. You’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader™ to view and print your receipt. Most people already have this program on their computer. If you don’t, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free from the Adobe™ website.
  •     Just print the receipt and use it as you would use your regular paper tax receipts.

What if I don’t get my e-receipt, I can’t read it, or I lose it?

If you have trouble receiving, viewing or printing your receipt, or if you lose it, please e-mail us at donations@lung.ca.  When you write, please include your complete address for identification purposes. You can also call our office at (613) 569-6411.

What are the advantages of e-receipts over paper receipts sent through postal mail?

  •     You get your receipt faster- it arrives via e-mail within 24 hours of the time you made the donation.
  •     We spend less time and money processing receipts, so there’s more time and money for programs and services.
