How is your donation used?

The first $20 from each donation goes towards the Provincial funding requirements of ABC.  This is used to provide resources and support to the local chapters as well as cover the minimal basic overhead costs of operating as a registered charity in Canada. ABC Ontario is currently completely volunteer operated and has no paid staff.

A small admin fee is retained by Canada Helps, a recognized charity themselves, who provides this invaluable service to many of Canada's most respected charities large and small.

The balance of your donation will go to the nearest active chapter or into a fund to start-up and re-vitalize local chapter activity. For this reason many supporters choose to donate $40 or more, but this is completely up to you. Every donation, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated.

You can designate how you would like your donation to be used or to which chapter you wish it be directed which may differ from your mailing address. If requested, 100% of your donation, other than the Canada Helps admin fee, can be directed to a local chapter in certain circumstances. Please indicate this when completing the forms on Canada Helps and contact us if you have any questions about donating to ABC Ontario.
