Charity Submission Update

As you know from the previous post, we submitted our application for charitable status in July.  Recently, we received an email back from them requesting addition information about the following:

  • How we select recipients
  • How we will ensure the funds are being used for charitable purposes
  • What risk assessment regarding the potential abuse of funds we have done
  • What financial controls we have in place
  • Why I might be employed by the charity
None of the questions we a huge surprise to us as they are all similar to questions raised by many of you (except for the one about my employment) in our previous discussions.  Hasha, Gary and I have created responses that we are now sending back to the charity and will wait to hear from them again.  

We'll keep you up-to-date as things move along.
