How we use your donations

TEA's work is made possible by the generous support of both foundations and unrestricted donations from the public. As a registered non-profit, we rely on these sources of support to pursue our core mandate of building A Greener City for All. Using our funds effectively is vital to achieving this mandate.


In the 2014/2015 fiscal year, TEA spent 78% of our total funding on programming, 10.5% on fundraising and 11.5% on general administrative costs. In order to be effective with our campaigns, TEA works hard to maximize the amount we spend on programming. Thanks to countless volunteer hours, a dedicated outreach team, and our amazing monthly donors, TEA is able to maximize it’s program spending.
