The Keri Chase Foundation
For Animal Welfare
Care and Help of Animal Safety Everyday
(A registered Canadian Charity)
Foundation Postpones Donations for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Years
In 2011, the Foundation was audited by the Charities Directorate of Canada Revenue Agency resulting in some surprising recommendations and requirements. The Trustees of the Foundation had a lengthy meeting to discuss contributions to local animal welfare charities in light of this audit. It was decided that a considerable higher degree of due diligence was required on the Foundationís part before any funds can be disbursed. The period of time left in 2011 was not sufficient in order to perform this extended due diligence. The Trustees of the Foundation decided to curtail support for 2012 and 2013. This gave the Foundation sufficient time to make contacts with eligible recipients and assess their due diligence process.
For local support to registered charities, the Foundation has entered into an agreement with the Thunder Bay Community Foundation. Please click here for further information.
