SOURCES OF FUNDING
The Infertility Network does not accept referral or advertising fees, and receives no financial support from government; medical or other professional associations; pharmaceutical manufacturers of fertility drugs; other corporations & organizations; IVF clinics; or the United Way.
From 1994-present, most of the money that enables our small charity to operate has come from a charitable bingo we run at the Kennedy Road Bingo Hall (Toronto), 1:00-3:30pm on Thursdays. Other revenue comes from the sale of books & videos; registration fees for seminars & workshops; and personal or professional donations & memberships.
