Issues in Halachah and Canadian/Ontario law when raising tzedakah: May one call someone who has asked not to be called again? What about calling an emotionally vulnerable person? May a contractor donate billable time to the organization and claim a tax receipt or count it as maaser? May an organization re-route funds that were given in response to a campaign that had identified a specific need?
