Terms and Conditions
Unlike most Canadian media, The Rebel is an independent media start-up that receives no government funds whatsoever. It relies on a crowdfunding model, where thousands of ordinary people support it through small contributions. No single donor has given more than 2% of the Rebel’s funds.
Crowdfunded contributions to The Rebel are considered gratuitous gifts and do not result in any equity or other ownership or rights to contributors.
Surplus Funds for Specific Initiatives
Surplus funds raised for specific initiatives will be used for other costs associated with that particular project, such as website development, website hosting, mail, and other such expenses. Additional funds will be used towards other similar initiatives in the future.
Please note that contributions to The Rebel are not tax deductible. We are unable to offer receipts for donations sent by mail. If you would like a receipt for a donation you made, you can contact us at [email protected]. Please include your name, email address, the date and amount of your donation, and phone number so we can accurately deal with your request.
