If members of my family want to participate, do we have to register individually or form a team?

It all depends on what you want to do.

- If you want to raise funds with family, friends or colleagues, it will be necessary in this case to form a team. This can be done on the corproate page (click here).

To do this, appoint a captain who will, when registering with Chefs Academy, create his team. The other members will then join this team.

The captain also has the role of accepting participant requests to join his team on the team page.

- If you want to do it as an individual, then just register as a participant.

 

We are a group of employees belonging to the same company. How can we participate?

You can participate individually (solo) or as a team on the corporate page.

- If you want to form a group, you will have to decide who will be the captain of the team. He will then have to create the team when registering with Chefs Academy. Then the other members will be able to join the team during their registration. The captain also has the role of accepting participant requests to join his team on the team page.

 

Once I'm registered, what happens?

You will receive a confirmation email.

Your personal page will be automatically created and you can personalize it by adding photos and videos. You will also be able to modify the presentation text and add your motivations.

You will be able to solicit your entourage to encourage you via our website.

 

Can I register multiple members with my email address?

No, each participant must have his own email address and therefore his own participant's form.

                                                    

 

Donations / Fundraising

What can I do to motivate donors and raise funds?

Use the following ideas to raise money

Culinary themes:

Thematic meal - Organize a thematic meal with music. Collect funds by selling tickets for this and inviting your guests to donate the same evening! Why not demonstrate your culinary skills?

Organize a Barbecue - Gather your friends, family and neighbors and serve them hamburgers. Collect funds by asking them to pay for their cutlery or each item they choose.

Recipe Contest - Organize your own Culinary Challenge with your friends and neighbors. Ask for an event fee and encourage participants to bring their favorite recipe. Offer each of your guests a booklet including these recipes.

"Have fun with your friends":

Movie Night - Pick a movie and invite family and friends to watch. Sell ​​tickets to participate in the event and accept donations for the dinner that will take place before. If you do not want to plan a meal, have them eat fabulous appetizers.

Party for TV premiere - Invite multiple friends to watch the TV premiere of a television series or season. In exchange for food and a comfortable seat, they will donate by show or for the evening.

Social media:

Spread your message to all of your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram friends by adding the #Chefsacademy to all your Culinary Challenge communications!

 


What projects are being supported by this initiative?

The Foundation's goal is to raise $ 100,000 with Chefs Academy. These funds will support research and innovation right here in Quebec, by funding one of the research programs of Dr. Mark Basik, a surgeon-oncologist at the Jewish General Hospital.

Live Tumor Program: This approach aims to grow the cancer cells that come directly from the patient, in the laboratory, and then treat them with different drugs to observe their response to treatments. The ultimate goal is to be able to find an effective treatment right away without having to impose on patients unsuccessful treatments with significant side effects.

This program fits directly into the era of precision medicine, that is to say, to establish screening strategies, prevention and treatments that are best adapted to each patient according to their individual characteristics, including their lifestyles and their social environment.

Are donors entitled to tax receipts?

Yes, anyone donating $ 25 or more will receive a tax receipt

How do I keep track of cash and check donations?

To keep track of the cash and check donations you receive, use this form and include all the information so that a tax receipt can be sent to your donors.

 

What is the best way to send my cash and check donations to the Foundation?

Sending money by mail is not always safe. To ensure that donations are well received by the Foundation, we advise you to deposit all cash donations and checks you receive into your personal bank account. Then send us a check on behalf of the Foundation with the total amount of donations collected.

* Do not forget to include the donation form so that your donors can receive their tax receipts.

 

When can donors expect to receive their tax receipts?

For online donations, receipts are usually sent within a week.

For cash and checks, please allow 6-8 weeks from the date we receive them from the Foundation. (Please note that since October is breast cancer awareness month, issuing receipts may take longer)
