About Us

When people are at their best—physically, mentally and emotionally—something powerful happens.

They no longer live in survival mode, figuring out how to get through the day, week or month. Their lives aren’t confined to the limited opportunities surrounding them, they’re searching for new ones. They’re in a better position to make more positive choices, to offer support to those around them and make their neighbourhoods richer and more rewarding places to live. When that happens—when that goodness spreads—entire communities can benefit: in health, happiness, and success. Strong communities go on to create strong cities; the opportunities become boundless. And everyone wins.

But the issues facing our community are complex and they have an impact on people every day. And when people aren’t at their best, they can’t contribute in the same way.

PHILANTHROPY is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

I

To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

II

To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

III

To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.

IV

To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

V

To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

VI

To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

VII

To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.

VIII

To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.

IX

To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

X

To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
