Frequently Ask Questions (FAQ)

Can I donate with my credit card?

Yes! Donations can be made securely through your special event page.

Can I donate by cheque?

Yes! Please make sure all cheques are written out to the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research or FPWR Canada and make sure the date is written correctly. Sadly, we cannot deposit stale or post-dated cheques.

Mail cheques to:

FPWR Canada

I mailed in a cheque, how can I make sure a cheque was added to my personal fundraising page?

When cheques are received at FPWR Canada, we make our best effort to ensure they are added to the correct personal page. Please include a completed donation form along with your cheque to ensure we know the name of your page and the event you are participating in.

To cheque if a donation has been received and added to the correct page, log in to your account and view your donations. When a cheque donation has been received, it will be noted on your list of donations. If you do not see the donation on the page, please email

There isn't an event near me, how can I participate?

That is a GREAT question! There are many ways you can participate. If you cannot attend one of the events, you can participate by fundraising virtually!

No event near you but you REALLY want to attend an event? How about hosting an event in your community? Hosting an event can be as simple as planning a picnic. We will help guide you through the process.
