Hands and Feet International Society (HFI) is a registered corporation in the province of Alberta under the Societies Act and is also a registered Canadian charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. Canadian Charity Registration Number: BN 84838 4525 RR0001. All donations made to HFI in support of sanctioned volunteer opportunity Postings or Project are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law for Canadian tax payers.
Contributions are solicited with the understanding that HFI has complete discretion and control over the use of all donated funds. The charity will attempt to honor gifts designated to support particular Service Opportunity Postings or Projects, but the final decision on the use of all funds rests with the charity.
HFI does not assess any overheads or administration fees on any posting or project donations. Thanks to the generous support of those who believe in our vision and give to our General Fund from time to time, we are able to allocate 100% of the monies donors give directly to the posting or project they designate!
Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need with one of our qualified and approved partner delivery organizations.
No persons who provide leadership, governance or otherwise support the operations of HFI receive a salary or any other remuneration other than defrayal of legitimate business expenses; their services are provided on a 100% volunteer basis.
Donors who make use of our PayPal Gateway for Credit Card donations should note that PayPal (not HFI) will deduct a credit card processing fee of 1.6% of the total amount donated + $0.30.
