We’ve been building towards becoming a non-profit. Now it’s official! This is super exciting for us. But here’s a bit more information about what it is, why it’s important and what it means going forward.
We are now a federally incorporated non-proft in Canada. It became official Friday evening and we’re really jazzed. Our corporation number is 1214098-5. We felt it was important to take the step of incorporating as an NPO (non-profit organization) to let people know that we’re serious.
What this means
Now that we are a non-profit, we can focus on building a strong team and increasing our impact.
We’ve been hosting our support meetings, building this website, and growing our social media community. To be done well, however, there are some costs associated with these activities. Now that we’re a recognized non-profit, it will allow us to get more efficient and focus on doing some awareness campaigns and fundraisers.
We hope to do some bigger things over next following weeks, months and years. Let us know what you think. Do you have questions? We’d love to hear your thoughts and get your feedback.
