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. We call this "social commerce"; others call it "pay it forward". It's how we pay our bills.
Crowdfunded contributions to The Rebel are considered gratuitous gifts and do not result in any equity or other ownership or rights to contributors.
Because we often spend donations as they come in, we are unable to refund donations of anything past 30 days from when a contribution was given.
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 The Rebel 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, email address, the date and amount of your donation, and phone number so we can accurately deal with your request.
