EcoEquitable is a registered charity and can offer tax receipts.

For donations with less than $1,000 value, please bring a letter or send an email to with the estimated value of your donation and your mailing address.

For donations of over $1,000, the CRA requires the donation to come with an independent appraisal of the donation value (ie. receipts).  Please contact us at the time of donation to ensure that we get everything in order.

We are a small organization and are not able to pick up materials. If you are in need of a pick-up, the Canadian Diabetes Association has several options.
