Our Charity Work – Where the Money Goes

Before you become involved in our organization, we want you to know our commitment to our cause…

Most of our work is organized by committees made up of volunteers. We don’t use any paid fundraisers and we don’t telemarket. Being true to our mission, arrive alive DRIVE SOBER® shares materials and resources with more than 350 groups, schools, public health units, businesses, and police services every year. We note that Ontario has the safest roads in Canada and North America and we are proud to have played a role in this achievement. Recent data show a constant reduction in impaired driving fatalities.

Our numbers:

In 2010, we raised a total of $273,673 and spent $215,178 of that on our charitable work – representing 78.5% of our gross revenue of about $273,000. During the same year we issued approximately $18,000 in charitable receipts; this requires us by Revenue Canada to spend about $14,400 on our charitable work. We very much surpassed the requirement and we proudly, typically do.
