Why Become a Donor or Friend of the Centre for Inquiry?Charlie Hebdo

CFI Canada is entirely supported by donations from supporters like you.  We do not receive government funding. Your donations are put to use in many ways:

  • They support our educational events attended by thousands of Canadians.
  • They help support our staff as we take on the issues that matter  most to you.
  • They help support our lending library hosting one of the largest  collections of freethought literature in the country.

All of these things would not be possible without your commitment as a donor or member.

When you become a Friend of the Centre for Inquiry Canada or a donor, you aren’t just joining a community, you are making a statement. You are making a commitment to critical thinking, scientific literacy, secular humanism, and freedom of thought in Canada and across the world. By getting involved, you are adding your voice to the thousands of others who are ready to make a stand for science and reason.

Recently CFI Canada has worked on these critical initiatives:

  • Fighting against the Ugandan anti-gay legislation
  • Forcing the Catholic school system to allow Gay-Straight  Alliances in Ontario
  • Fighting Blasphemy Laws in Canada and around the world
  • Combatting the insurgence of pseudo-science and religion into healthcare.
  • Speaking our for freethinkers, secularists, atheists, agnostics, secular humanists and non-believers.

Gifts in Kind: Did you know that gifts of products and services may qualify for a charitable tax receipt?  Canada Revenue Agency has rules and guidelines which apply, but gifts such as these may be an effective way to get involved with CFIC.  Scrap car to get rid of?  Maybe you have a time-share property you no longer use?  Click here for other gifts in kind ideas.

Employee Giving: Don’t forget the local United Way campaign or your company’s employee giving programme.  All you need to do is advise of CFIC’s charitable number 83364 2614 RR0001 and your payroll gift can be forwarded to CFIC. More information here.

S.H.A.R.E.:  In response to the outpouring of concern expressed by members and volunteers of CFI Canada over the earthquake in Nepal (May 2015), we have launched the Skeptics and Humanists Aid and Relief Effort (SHARE).   The SHARE fund was initially developed by CFI (US) as a service for their donors who wished to give to disaster relief in a way that is consistent with their ethics and standards; in Canada, the SHARE model is a service to CFIC members and donors who wish to give to disaster recovery initiatives through secular charities.  CFIC will provide a tax receipt to donors and pass 100% of donations to a secular disaster recovery charity partner.  Donor names and details will not be shared with other organizations (unless explicitly requested by the donor).  Giving to assist during disasters should respect your ethics and reach the vulnerable.  We can help.
