Preserving the trust it has forged with its donors and respecting their privacy is crucial for the Mental Illness Foundation. The Foundation is committed to limiting the number of annual mail solicitations to two, in the spring and fall, and to not in any way disclose its donor list to anyone.
The Mental Illness Foundation will arrange for you to receive your tax receipt one month after receipt of your donation. However, it may take more time during very busy periods, such as at Christmas and Easter.
Also, if you donated before December 31, you will receive a receipt corresponding to the fiscal year of your gift. For your monthly donations by pre-authorized bank withdrawal or credit card or by check, you will receive one tax receipt for your total annual donations. This receipt will be sent before January 31, next year.
The Mental Illness Foundation issues a tax receipt for donations of $20 or more. However, upon request receipts may be issued for donations under $20.
The Mental Illness Foundation does not solicit door-to-door and does not authorize anyone to engage in this type of solicitation.
The Mental Illness Foundation’s registration number is 10183 6641 RR 0001.
