YOU the Fundraiser: Where does the money I raise go?

In Uncategorized on August 30, 2011 at 4:58 pm

Holding a fundraiser is a great way to get involved and raise money for a charity that is important to YOU. After the planning is done and the money is raised, YOU the planner and all the donors who supported your fundraiser need to know where the money goes.

Now more than ever it’s so important for non profit organizations to communicate how funds are raised and how they are used. The Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia understands and respects donors rights.

The Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia receives no government funding. Our Programs, Services and Research contributions all come from donations made by the generous citizens of Nova Scotia, who join us in the commitment to one day have an answer to the cause of dementia, the treatment of dementia and one day, a cure.

The Alzheimer Society follows the Canadian Revenue Agency’s Guidelines and ratio’s for registered charitable organizations. Our organization continuously falls into their accepted percentages of how donor dollars are spent. For more information on how the Society responds to the ever growing number of Nova Scotian families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, please visit www.alzheimer.ns.ca For more information on the Canadian Revenue Agency’s guidelines, please visit www.cra-arc.gc.ca

Before YOU choose a charity to support, do your research. Make sure the charity YOU wish to support has a charitable registration number and follows the Canadian Revenue Agency’s Guidelines. If you still have questions contact them directly to ensure the time, effort and funds raised by YOU are going towards programs, services and research for those who are affected, whatever the cause may be.
