Tourette Canada relies on donations and sponsorships from individuals and businesses to deliver the important supports and services we provide.  Often, the donations from individuals make a greater impact than the moneys received from businesses, because donors give out of compassion and conviction, combined donor donations can result in a significant amount that isn’t directed to a specific project, allowing us to pay for things that business sponsors or grants sometimes don’t cover.

And there are lots of ways that individuals of all ages or entire families or groups of friends can help to fundraise for Tourette Canada throughout the year.  Here are just a few of the options:

Our programs and services are offered to families and professionals either at no charge, or on a cost-recovery basis. Tourette Canada receives no permanent government, corporate or foundation funding. The majority of our revenue is derived from special events, including the Trek for Tourette, held in locations across the country the last week of March each year – a time when the weather is as unpredictable as the disorder. Memberships, product sales, donations and grants make up the balance of our funding.

Our needs …Are modest but critical – please read more HERE.

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 ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the non-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 donation 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.
