Frequently Asked Questions
Find out how SkipTheDepot works for charities and fundraisers
Absolutely! Some customers prefer to donate their containers to a worthy cause! SkipTheDepot helps facilitate this by allowing customers to donate to local charities on pick up or redemption. Tax receipts are then issued to customers by the charity.
The charities are responsible for issuing their own tax receipts. We provide charities with only the user information required to issue a tax receipt (name, address, phone, postal, and donation amount). The system rolls up the donations by user (multiple donations will be summed) when a redemption is initiated.
No problem. Customers will be informed before they donate that they will not be receiving a tax receipt.
Charities use SkipTheDepot for free, but are encouraged to help spread the word (it's in your best interests!). We will provide a registration link for your community. Any new users registering with your link will be shown your community information and will be setup to automatically donate to your charity.
100% of the customer's returns will be donated. However, we offer slightly lower deposit rates than a depot. Eventually, we hope to remove this and offer full deposit rates as more people sign up for SkipTheDepot!
You can register here! We need the following information from the charity: Full Charity Name, Full Charity Mission Statement, PNG / Logo of Charity, CRN (Charity Registration Number), Email Address to send Transfers. There is also an approval process which involves us verifying who you say you are, the email address, and your charitable status through the government. After that, you're good to go!
Charity administrators can find a registration link on their dashboard which can be used to default users who register using the link into donating to your charity. Use this link to promote donations to your cause!
Charity administrators can log into the system and initiate an Interac e-Transfer. Alternatively, charity partners may request a cheque.
Just some good publicity. Spread the word! Tell others, give us a shout out on social media. Remember, the more customers you sign up using your registration link, the more your community benefits!
