How does the AEBC raise money?

The AEBC relies on donations to fund most of its services and operations.  These donations are attained in a number of ways.  If you are approached to make a donation or contribution to the AEBC, and are unsure of its legitimacy, please refer to this page for more information on the campaigns that we currently have underway.

The AEBC does not currently have any telephone solicitation campaigns under way.  In particular, fundraising initiatives involving the sponsorship of various children's publications produced by Public Sector Publications were not renewed and continued in 2012.

Direct Mail Solicitations

The AEBC occasionally sends a letter to previous donors outlining our recent activities, and soliciting contributions toward specific future initiatives (such as our annual scholarship program).  Included with the letter will be a "donation slip" that you are to return to the office with your donation.  Such letters are never sent in bulk to random addresses, or to people who have never donated to the AEBC in the past.  If you are moving or have moved, please keep us abreast of your new address.

See the section on Advertising in the Canadian Blind Monitor below for more information.

Door-to-Door Canvassing

The AEBC does have a small door-to-door canvassing operation in select areas of the country.  For more information on our door-to-door activities, and how you can protect yourself from fraud, see our page on Door-to-Door Fundraising.
