Unlike most Canadian media, Rebel News is an independent media start-up that receives no government funds whatsoever.
Rebel News relies on a crowdfunding model, where thousands of ordinary people support it through small contributions. We call this "social commerce"; others call it "pay it forward". It's how we pay our bills.
Crowdfunded contributions to Rebel News are considered gratuitous gifts and do not result in any equity or other ownership or rights to contributors. All transactions are final and non-refundable.
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 including to pay our journalists' salaries. Additional funds will be used towards other similar initiatives in the future.
Please note that contributions to Rebel News are not tax-deductible. We are unable to offer receipts for donations sent by mail. If you would like a confirmation of 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.
From time to time, Rebel News facilitates donations to registered charitable organizations. Rebel News does not hold any of those funds. Donations made expressly to charitable organizations on Rebel News webpages go directly to the charity and are not handled by Rebel News. Charitable organizations determine the allocation of donations at their own discretion.
