preparing and submitting donations

hero account

To make delivering campaign funds easier this year, we have set up a campaign account where you can directly deposit your team’s raised funds at any Scotiabank branch across Canada. Please provide the information below to the bank teller, and ensure you request a Credit Memo is added to your deposit indicating your company name. It is important that you request a Credit Memo so that we can credit the funds deposited to your campaign’s fundraising totals.​
