Our Financials

USC Canada is committed to transparency in and accountability for the financial management of funds entrusted to us. We are members of and adhere to the ethical standards of both the Canadian Council for International Cooperation and Imagine Canada, and meet all of the requirements and expectations of the Charities Directorate of the Canada Revenue Agency.

Our major international program, Seeds of Survival, is funded in part by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), a department of the Government of Canada. GAC contributes approximately 72.5 per cent of the total costs of the program. The remaining 27.5 per cent must be fundraised by USC Canada from Canadian sources.

Other programs of USC Canada, including The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security, Sow and Save, Seedmap.org and smaller international projects are funded in part through charitable contributions of Canadians and other partner organizations and foundations.

In 2015-2016, approximately 43 per cent of USC Canada revenues came from GAC.

USC Canada also benefits from the legacy gifts of countless Canadians who have been inspired by our work, and by our founder, Lotta Hitschmanova. Bequests and legacy gifts left to USC Canada (or our former name, the Unitarian Service Committee of Canada) have been consolidated in the USC Foundation, which contributes income annually to USC Canada.

More information about our finances can be found in the charts below, and in the numerous links on this page.
