PLEASE NOTE: As of September 18, 2018, extra-life.org is able to accept donations in both US dollars (USD) and Canadian dollars (CAD). Yay! Thank you for your patience and understanding in unlocking this level up!
Any online donations from a credit card with a Canadian billing address will be processed in Canadian dollars (CAD). All other payment options (including PayPal and ApplePay) are charged in USD. Extra Life donations will appear on your credit card statement as CHILDRENS MIRACLE NETWORK.
Each participant chooses the hospital they wish to support with their donations when they register for Extra Life. Hospital choice is displayed on the right-hand side of each participant’s donor page. To find a donor’s page, navigate to extra-life.org and type their name in the upper right-hand box where it says “search for a player”.
In Canada, our member hospitals issue tax receipts for donations. All hospitals are required to send receipts by the end of February. Most hospitals send receipts by mail, however, a few will email the receipts.
In the United States, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals will email you a tax receipt immediately after your donation has been submitted online. Please be sure to keep this for your records. ;
Each of our Canadian hospitals has a minimum donation threshold for issuing automatic receipts. In most cases, donations of $20 and up are issued a receipt. Donation amounts less than $20 can be issued receipts upon request. Donors seeking receipts for these types of donations should contact their local hospital to request donation receipts.
If the participant you supported chose a US hospital, the confirmation you received via email when you made your donation, is the receipt.
Unfortunately, in most cases receipts from donations that supported a US hospital are not accepted by the Canada Revenue Agency, however there are certain circumstances where this may be possible. Please reference page 8 of the Gifts and Income Tax 2016 document here to determine your eligibility.
It should take approximately 2-3 weeks for offline donations to hit your fundraising page as verified donations. To submit offline donations, please enter the donations on your donation page by selecting the ADD OFFLINE DONATION option from the drop-down menu. Once this is completed, please send the offline donations with a completed offline donation form to:
