The 100% Model

A BOLD IDEA: Always use 100% of public donations to fund our programs.

When we started the FCSS-FESC, we made a bold promise to the general public — 100% of their donations would go directly to Ontario students through our programs. We'd find another way to cover our operating expenses.

We depend on private donors, foundations and sponsors to cover everything from basic office systems, supplies, and legal and regulatory fees. These donors are some of our most dedicated: their investment fuels our long-term mission, our ability to scale as an organization and our mission to continue using 100% of public donations to help fuel youth passions across the province.

Bonuses & Salaries:

As a not-for-profit organization, we are committed to the 100 per cent model. Every dollar you donate will be spent on programs, services, infrastructure, and outreach that benefits Ontario secondary students. We do not pay our executives or other staff any bonuses, salaries or stipends. This is only possible through the dedicated work of our volunteers, and we thank them for their support.

Tax Receipts:

We are pleased to issue tax receipts for all donations made to the FCSS-FESC, regardless of the amount. Our Business Number with the Canada Revenue Agency is 818506784RR0001.
