FAQs

Q Did you recently receive a knock at your door?
A

You may have recently received a friendly visit from a Heart & Stroke Canvasser inviting you to join our Breakthrough Fund by making a monthly gift. If you have any immediate concerns and would like to verify that the canvasser that you spoke with represents Heart & Stroke, please do not hesitate to contact us: By phone at 1-877-882-2582 or by email at monthly@heartandstroke.ca


Please note that all official Heart & Stroke Monthly Giving Ambassadors carry:

• Heart & Stroke bookmarks to provide you with more information.
• Heart & Stroke branded bag.
• Weather permitting, Heart & Stroke jacket, Heart & Stroke summer golf shirt.
• Contact information for Heart & Stroke’s National office.

Q Why are you coming to my door for a donation?
A

We need to keep research on course towards the major breakthroughs in Heart and Stroke research.

Your gifts are an investment into the best medical minds in the world who are working tirelessly to reverse heart damage and save the moments we cherish from being taken away too soon. 

Your monthly gifts are absolutely vital to provide a steady stream of funding for complex and time-consuming research. Without consistent support from people like you, funding can dry up, and staff may move on to other projects. This leaves the research on hold, and can even set back any progress made.
