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.
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.
*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.
In person, using a printed pledge form (available in late August):
Click "Give now" then "Sponsor a Shuffler" and enter the Shuffler's first or last name.
Click "Give now" then "Sponsor a team" and select the team. (Team sponsorship is only available 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.
Return your pledge forms (with credit card details, cheques and cash donations) to complete in-person registration at one of three Shuffle kit pickup locations:

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
