Frequently Asked Questions

Why is CanadaHelps partnering with Mylo to offer Round Up to Give?

CanadaHelps has always been committed to connecting Canadians to the charities they care about and this partnership provides a new, impactful way to support the charities they care about. In particular, it’s a great way to help Canadians new to giving or on a tight budget, to discover and support any registered Canadian charity.

As always, you can give with confidence, knowing you will receive an official tax receipt and that the funds will be promptly sent to the designated charity.

What do I need to know if I use both Mylo and CanadaHelps?

When you donate through CanadaHelps, you can access your official tax receipts for the prior year using our tax receipt generator tool or you can access all your receipts anytime in your CanadaHelps account.

When you donate through Mylo’s Round Up to Give, your receipts are available in your Mylo app at the end of each month.

Is there a fee for using Round Up to Give?

Mylo charges a $1 per month flat fee to use their platform. Each donation is subject to a processing fee of 2% of your total donation. The fees cover CanadaHelps’ platform and banking fees for processing your donations, and support the work that CanadaHelps does to provide charities with affordable access to online fundraising and educational tools. You always receive a tax receipt for 100% of the value of your donation. The charity receives the amount of your donation less our processing fee.

How much can I really raise for my charity with roundups?

The average Mylo user generates around $10 in roundups per week, but you might generate more or less depending on how frequently you use your debit and credit cards. There are also three ways that you can reach your donation goal faster: give your savings a boost by depositing a lump sum donation to your selected charity, multiply your roundups, or earn $5 towards your goal for every friend you successfully refer to Mylo.

What do I need to get started?

You can sign up for Mylo online or through the Mylo app. In order to manage your charitable giving as part of Round Up to Give, you must download the Mylo iOS app or the Mylo Android app. You will need an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 9.3.5 or higher or an Android device running 4.4 or higher. You must also link a minimum of one bank account to the app to get you started on funding your goals.

What if I change my mind?

You can withdraw money from your donation goal anytime, at no cost, but be sure to do this before the last Friday of the month. That’s when Mylo submits your donation to CanadaHelps for processing and disbursement to the charity you selected. Like all charitable donations, donations made through the Mylo app are non-refundable.
