Backyard Burger SHOWdown FAQ
Is there a minimum donation amount?
The minimum amount that a donor can make to a GoFundMe fundraiser is $10. This minimum donation amount is due to industry-standard transaction fees applied to each donation.
Do all donations receive an income tax receipt?
Yes, donations of $10.00 or more will be issued a tax receipt automatically from the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation. All donations to the Backyard Burger SHOWdown fundraiser are collected and distributed to the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation
The Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation is a charitable business registered with Canada Revenue Agency, Charitable Business Number 11910 7175 RR 0001
All donations of $10 or more will be issued an income tax receipt to the full extent permissible by law.
What do I do if someone makes a donation outside of GoFundMe (i.e. cash/cheque)?
