In our ever busy and demanding world, the need to seek funding through membership fees, internal fundraising projects, and through corporate or private financial donations is a necessity in order to develop and deliver our FNE Explorer program.
We take comfort in the fact that within our movement all funds raised directly benefit our youth and their all-volunteer leadership team. We have no paid staff, and no corporate overhead. There are no middlemen paid a management fee, nor are there any service charges deducted before the funds reach our FNE youth.
We invite interested parties who like what they see here within our Website regarding our group and movement, to consider the potential opportunity to make a private or corporate financial donation to support our program goals and objectives.
As a soon to be registered charity, we will acknowledge any and all donations formally with income tax receipts promptly issued for donations greater than $10.00 upon request.
In August of 1999 we launched a traditional and dynamic youth program for boys in Timber Wolves (age 8.5-11), Explorers (age 12-17) and Wayfarer Explorers (age 17 plus)
Currently, better than 150 youth and leaders (with extensive leadership experience) are enrolled in our vibrant and dynamic youth program. Numbers are expected to increase substantially in subsequent years, as additional resources become available. In August of 2011 we celebrated our 12th year of operation.
We are proud members of a movement known as the Union International des Guides et Scouts d'Europe-FSE, who are active in some 19 different countries including Canada. Our focus is the delivery of traditional program values, as designed by the founder of the Scouting organization, Lord Baden-Powell of Gilwell.
Key Program Objectives
Through regular weekly meetings, outings and all season camping, our objectives are to foster:
We strive to ensure that the youth and their parents understand that they must share in the responsibility to contribute to the funds required to support both the short and long-term delivery of the program. On the other hand, to spend the majority of our time fundraising by selling door-to-door products such as chocolate bars measurably reduces available time for critical program delivery activities. Thus, some sort of a balance must be struck.
To support long-term programs we are seeking potential donations to support:
The Federation of North-American Explorers is formally registered as a not-for-profit organization registered within the Province of Ontario. We are further authorized to issue income tax receipts for donations by Revenue Canada (effective end of April 2012)
