Funding Guidelines & Preferences:

Generally, we prefer funding early-stage, catalyst opportunities and not large capital or ongoing operating expenses.  As such, we should not be counted on for sustaining funding.

 that is not subject to a suspension of tax-receipting privileges;

 that is not subject to a security certificate under the Charities Registration (Security Information) Act;

 that has no unpaid liabilities under the Income Tax Act or Excise Tax Act;

 that has filed all of its information returns; and

 that has more than half of its directors/trustees at arm’s length with each of the directors of the S. M. Blair Family Foundation.
