How much has the Shuffle raised?

Last year the Concordia community came together for Shuffle 27 and raised over $84,000 for student scholarships and bursaries, bringing our combined 27 year total to almost $1.4 million! Let's keep that momentum going!

 

What are Shuffle 28 teams?

Teams help build spirit and boost overall funds raised — helping even more of our students.

 

To create a team, you must first register as an individual Shuffler. Then, once you're logged into your Shuffle account, click "Create a team" from the top menu and follow the instructions. (Teams may only be created online.)

 

Once you create a team and select a team name, you become captain and can invite any number of colleagues, family members and friends to join. Sponsors can donate to you individually or to the team. When a sponsor donates to you individually, your team’s fundraising thermometer also rises.

 

How can I join a Shuffle 28 team?

First register as an individual Shuffler. Then click “Join a team” from the top menu. Select a team and the team captain will be notified of your request.

How do I register?

*This year, we're continuing our efforts to go green — and reducing the volume of printed Shuffle materials. We encourage you to raise funds online on our Shuffle website.

Online:

  • Click “Register” at the top left-hand corner of your screen and follow the instructions.
  • Raise funds by asking colleagues, family and friends to sponsor you. You can share your public profile page by email or social media.
  • Once you raise $40 (or $25, if you’re a student), you’re eligible for a free Shuffle kit and a chance to win prizes! (See below for details under "How do I get a Shuffle kit?")

In person, using a printed pledge form (available in late August):

  • Pick up a Shuffle 28 pledge form on the Sir George Williams Campus, Advancement and Alumni Relations Office, Faubourg Building (FB),   Suite 520 or on the Loyola Campus (L-AD 532-4).
  • Raise funds by asking colleagues, family and friends in person to sponsor you.
  • Submit your completed pledge form with cash, cheques and credit card details at one of two Shuffle kit pickup locations (see FAQs below for pickup locations). 
  • Once you raise $40 (or $25, if you’re a student), you’re eligible for a free Shuffle kit and a chance to win prizes!

 

How do I sponsor a Shuffler who's registered online?

Click "Give now" then "Sponsor a Shuffler" and enter the Shuffler's first or last name.

 

How do I sponsor a team that’s registered online?

Click "Give now" then "Sponsor a team" and select the team. (Team sponsorship is only available online.)

 

How can I let potential sponsors know I've registered online, so they can sponsor me (or my team) online?

When registering online, you'll have the option to share your personal Shuffle page on social media. You can also email the link to your profile so you can inform colleagues, family and friends that you'll be Shuffling. You may also choose to let them know by phone or in person that you'll be taking part in a fundraising event to benefit deserving students.

 

How do I get a Shuffle kit?

  1. Once you raise $40 (or $25, if you’re a student), you’re eligible for a free Shuffle kit available at our Shuffle pickup locations. Remember you can also sponsor yourself.
  2. Visit one of three Shuffle kit pickup locations:
    1. If you registered online, our staff will have a record of your online fundraising. 
    2. If you're registering in person, bring your pledge form and donations — cash, cheques and credit card information. We’ll complete your registration on the spot.

How many pledges do I have to collect?

There is no minimum to participate. The more money you collect, the more scholarships and bursaries we can award to students.

To receive a Shuffle kit, to receive lunch at the President's picnic and be eligible for the prize draws, you must raise the minimum amount of $40 (or $25 if you are a student).

Please note that challenge gifts are NOT included when calculating eligibility to receive a Shuffle kit or be entered in our prize draw. 

 

Do I have to collect payment for all my pledges before Shuffle day?

No, but you can save time by collecting payment when asking for pledges. Ask your sponsors to write a cheque to Concordia University on the spot or, if they prefer to use their credit card, ask them to complete the credit card section of the pledge form. Your sponsors can also give cash. It's even easier for them to give online!

 

Why do my sponsors have to provide their full name and address?

Revenue Canada requires that a sponsor's name and address appear on the tax receipt. If your sponsor wishes to receive a receipt, it's important they provide all required information.

 

Will I get a tax receipt?

Tax receipts will be issued for all online donations and donations made through paper pledge forms — but only if the sponsor's full name and address are provided.

 

How will I know when someone sponsors me or my team online?

After a sponsor completes the online transaction, you'll receive an email indicating who sponsored you and for what amount. Your personal Shuffle page will also be updated automatically. If you are a team captain, you’ll receive an email indicating who sponsored your team and for what amount and your team page will be updated automatically.

What if I registered online but a sponsor gives me cash or a cheque?

  1. Complete a Shuffle 28 pledge form.
  2. Bring the form with the cash, cheque or credit card details to a Shuffle kit pickup location (see above for locations).

 

I'm having trouble registering online. What should I do?

Contact us at shuffle@concordia.ca or 514-848-2424, ext. 3884.

Can I rollerblade or bike?

Yes, you can skate, cycle, run or walk. Some participants even push their kids in strollers!

Can I bring a friend?

Yes! While it's not required, encourage your friends to collect their own pledges so that they can receive a Shuffle kit, enjoy a delicious lunch and be eligible to win great prizes.

 

Can I bring my pet with me?

While your pet is welcome to join the Shuffle, it must be on a leash while on university grounds and is not permitted in buildings.

 

Will extra shuttle buses be running on Shuffle day?

Yes, there will be extra buses to help Shufflers get downtown in time for the kick-off and to return downtown after the President’s Picnic.

 

My children are Shuffling with me. Can they take shuttle bus, too?

Yes, children will be allowed on the shuttle bus on Shuffle day only.

 

Will free parking be available at Loyola on Shuffle day?

Yes, Shufflers can park at the Terrebonne, Jesuit Residence and Athletics Complex parking lots at no charge.
