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.

Current activities:

If you have any further questions, please call us at 1-800-561-4774 to discuss your concerns!

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.

Fundscrip Gift Card Program

Help us raise money and join our gift card fundraiser!

FundScrip is an innovative program that lets you earn cash rebates for the Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) based on things you buy everyday like groceries, gas and other household items.

Every month you spend hundreds of dollars for things like food, gas, clothing, pharmacy, restaurants, electronics, home renovations, department stores, and so on. All you have to do is pay for some or all of your purchases using GIFT CARDS bought at face value from FundScrip participating retailers and a percentage of every gift card purchased is contributed to AEBC's fundraising efforts. So instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through our group. It costs you nothing extra, but you just earned money for our organization.
