Breakfast Club of Canada, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, is proud and grateful to have earned Imagine Canada accreditation. This designation attests to our commitment to directing all of our funds where they need to go, to nurturing potential, growing healthy students and giving an equal chance of success to all kids.
The Imagine Canada Standards Program applies to charitable and non-profit organizations in Canada. Of over 170,000 non-profits across the country, only 200+ have received this accreditation to date. We are honoured to join the ranks of these organizations recognized for their excellence, leadership and credibility. The Club is one of the first organizations to focus on school nutrition and only the second with nation-wide reach. To be approved, we had to meet 75 requirements in five key areas:
- Board governance
- Financial accountability and transparency
- Staff management
- Volunteer involvement.
This accreditation will allow us to build further on our already strong reputation in order to extend our network of partners and donors. This kind of recognition is often taken into account when key decisions are made. It is proof of our commitment, professionalism and transparency in everything we do.
Now that we are Imagine Canada accredited, we hope to be able to support even more schools and make an even greater difference in the lives of young Canadians, one breakfast at a time.
