Short answer

No! Under no circumstances should your registration number be loaned to another organization.

Long answer

A charity is responsible for all tax receipts issued under its name and number and must account for the corresponding donations on its annual information return.

Lending the registration number to another organization could lead to the revocation of your charity’s registered status.
