Methods to Donate
The Federated Health Charities campaign provides four methods to donate:
- Payroll pledges
- One-time donations
- Special events
- Lottery tickets
You must be a member of the OPS to make a payroll donation.
If you have a WIN number, and access to the system, you can make payroll deductions via your WIN self-service Portal. Just sign into MYOPS to access WIN using your WIN ID, and choose the “My Charity” tab from the main menu to make your donation. In this case, you don’t need to fill out a donor form.
- do NOT have a WIN ID;
- are unable to access WIN;
please fill in the donor form and give the form to one of the canvassers in your ministry or agency.
Regardless of how you donate (WIN/Donor form), payroll deductions will start with the first pay in July, and end with the last pay in June the following year (if you choose the maximum 26 pays).
Are you a member of the OPS?
You can make a one-time donation by filling out the same donation form that is used for payroll pledges. Simply enter in the amount you would like to donate and the method by which you would like to do so (cash, cheque, or credit card). A receipt for income tax credit will be mailed to you.
Not in the OPS but would like to donate?
Anyone can donate to any or all of the 17 Federated Health charities by cash, cheque or credit card. It is not necessary to be an employee or retiree of the Ontario Public Service. Simply complete the following donation form. A receipt for income tax credit will be mailed to you.
Are you an OPS retiree?
