HOW WE SAFEGUARD THE MONEY

• We take your $100 and the ~$10,000 we plan to raise very seriously

• Our founding members, Andrew Bourne, previously worked as a forensic accountant. During his experience as a fraud investigator, he learned various techniques to assist in making the processing of cash and payments efficient and safe. Andrew has helped us put in place procedures that keep the flexible unique mechanism of the 100 gens but also reduce the risk of any irregularity. That process is:

  • Rolling volunteers at each event - the same volunteers will not be counting charitable receipts each time.

  • A manual receipt process will be in place to ensure that all receipts provided to Members are accounted for in the counting of the donation receipts.

  • Cheques and cash will be accepted and kept by Andrew Bourne (CPA, CMA, DIFA) until delivery at the charity

  • Charity names transcribed by a rotating volunteer group of five people

  • Reporting on the exact total amount to the group in the next week after

  • Official Tax receipts from the charity for the exact $100 given to donating members as the official confirmation that the funds went to the intended location

  • All incidental costs are funded 100% by the founding members personally so that 100% of the donations go to the earmarked charities

  • There will be a bank account administered by Andrew Bourne for any cash and credit card donations. This bank account will merely be a flow through of funds from donation receipts to the overall contributions made to the charities. Andrew will be providing a detailed accounting of the bank account to the remainder of the Organizing Committee, and to any other Member, upon request.
