It’s official! Kids Up Front Foundation Ottawa is now a Canadian registered charity!
We don’t want to bore you with all the details, but as of August 14th, 2017, Kids Up Front Foundation Ottawa, or ‘KUFFO’ as you’ll more commonly see us, has met the requirements for charitable registration under the Income Tax Act. We’re quite excited as this will enable us to take the next step to continue to fulfill our mission to help bring amazing entertainment experiences for Ottawa’s deserving children and youth.
Only five short months after distributing our first event ticket to Ariana, KUFFO is now able to accept all donated event tickets, and may issue a charitable tax receipt for all financial and ticket donations. We’re looking forward to building on the great partnerships we’ve established in the city with cool groups such as the Ottawa Fury, the Great Canadian Theatre Company, the Ottawa Champions, and the Ottawa Senators!
We have to acknowledge the legal support from Ms. Tanya Carlton, J.D., for her guidance through the charitable registration process. Thank you again, Tanya!
As we continue to grow our community profile – and become Ottawa’s option to donate unused event tickets – we hope our new charitable status will empower KUFFO’s commitment to delivering quality programs for children and families in Ottawa!
As they say, we’re open for business! Here are the best ways to contact us if you have any questions or tickets to donate:
