YOUR MEMBERSHIP FEES AND DONATIONS ARE MUCH APPRECIATED - PLEASE CONTRIBUTE
ABC is an entirely volunteer operated organization, and welcomes members and donations to help us accomplish our goal of supporting the education and development of bright and gifted children.
ABC believes, and the Ontario Education Act states, that “the purpose of education is to provide [all] students with the opportunity to realize their potential“ (R.S.O. 1990, c. E.2, s. 0.1 (2))
Since 1975, ABC has worked with families, educators, school boards, the Ministry of Education, and other policy makers to support bright and gifted children and to strive for educational excellence.

ABC Ontario, incorporated as The Association for Bright Children of Ontario, is a registered charity - #118777275RR0001
How is your donation used?
The first $20 from each donation is applied to the provincial funding requirements of ABC, to cover the minimal basic overhead costs of operating as a registered charity, and to provide provincial support and resources to local chapters and parents across the province. ABC Ontario is currently completely volunteer operated and has no paid staff.
ABC’s current membership fee is $40. The balance of your contribution will go to your specified local chapter or into a provincial fund, which among other things, helps to support local and provincial activities. For this reason many supporters choose to contribute more than $40, but every donation, regardless of size, is greatly appreciated.
A small administrative fee, calculated as a percentage of the amount contributed, is retained by CanadaHelps for providing this contribution processing service. CanadaHelps is also a registered charity, and provides this service to many of Canada's most respected large and small charities.
