CNIB is a registered charity (national charity #119219459RR0003). As such, we rely on the generosity of people like you to help us ensure Canadians who are blind or partially sighted have the confidence, skills and opportunities to fully participate in life.
At CNIB, we recognize that peace of mind is important when individuals are concerned about how non-profit organizations use their contributions. That's why we make a commitment to financial accountability in managing the funds that you entrust to us.
CNIB is committed to being fully transparent in our accounting practices. Ultimate responsibility for governance and financial oversight rests with the CNIB Board of Directors, assisted in this capacity by the Finance and Risk Management Committee. Our full financial statements are audited annually by KPMG LLP Chartered Accountants.
Many people are surprised to learn that the government only provides 29% of the funds CNIB needs to run our vital programs and services. The generous support we receive from the public is essential to our mission. In fact, the majority of our revenue comes from individual Canadians through such sources as direct mail fundraising, events, lotteries and gaming, and bequests.
