DONATE TO SHEILA TYNAN'S ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE

Regarding the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was an unplanned, one-time event that went viral.  This unexpected win fall has taken us all by surprise, with great thanks.  The ALS Society of BC Finance Committee   is working diligently to develop a recommendation to the Board and when ratified will be shared with our constituents, donors and the public.

The ALS Society of BC has enlisted the expertise of an audit manager to review how we (ALS BC) will manage the funds directed to our organization as a result of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

ALS BC is proud of our track record of fiscal management and that we operate with less than 15% administration costs. We do not have a wait list for any of our services. 

Once a plan is in place, it is our intention to ensure full transparency with the disbursement of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge funds, as is the case with all funds we manage.

If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
