Can I make a donation in someone else’s name?

The donor and tax receipt information entered when making a donation needs to match the details of the credit card used to process the donation. If the donor name and credit card doesn’t match, the transaction may be waived as fraud.

You can certainly make a donation in honour or in memory of a loved one by using the “Give in honour or send an ecard” section, or leave a message to the charity indicating who is sending the donation. However, the donation itself should not be made in another individual’s name.
