Frequently Asked Questions
There are two general funds:
For example, an outdoor excursion by bus to Sibbald Point for swimming and picnicking would cost $60 per person.
This was the best summer I’ve had in 35 years. ..We had a fantastic time..so much stuff to load onto the bus. Rocky shoreline, nice sandy beach, cedar trees, fishing, swimming or just sitting by the lake…felt really good. by Scott Benness, Tenant.
Administration costs are kept within the charity standards of less than 22%.
With regular reviews of administrative responsibilities, volunteers and Staff can identify ways to improve efficiencies and decrease costs. Cost savings realized last fiscal year were in areas of IT Support; Group Insurance Benefits; and Telephone Services. This freed up $41,958 for more programs to help the tenants.
On an annual basis, AIS posts Audited Financial Statements on the website www.AIStoronto.ca click Here. This will identify funding and expenses for major cost centers. Additionally, donors will receive a bi-annual Newsletter which will highlight new initiatives; tenant stories; and feature one of the unique programs you help provide for the tenants. Also, once per year, AIS conducts a Tenant Satisfaction Survey. The highlights of this report will be found on the AIS.
