Survivors Fighting for Change Foundation (SFC) is a registered non-profit organization in Canada that is run entirely by donations and volunteers.
What We Do & Why
Survivors Fighting for Change Foundation (SFC) is an Alberta based Non Profit Organization that is dedicated to advocating for victims of child sexual abuse (CSA) and lobbying the government for changes to our Criminal Code in order to better protect society and restore faith in the judicial system. We are the first of our kind and we are growing fast. This is beyond unacceptable and continues to worsen rather than improve, meaning more needs to be done to prevent it, both by the government through policy, and by society through awareness and education. This is why our focus remains on community awareness and education, as well as legislative changes through our organization’s petitions.
How We Help Victims Directly
Survivors Fighting for Change Foundation (SFC) offers support to victims whose cases are still in the court process. We do our best to provide information and answer questions as well as confirm information directly through the courts. Depending on the specifics of the case and the accused offender’s history, some cases are good candidates for a community petition that we submit directly to the courts. If you are a victim or are associated with a victim who could use some support and possibly information, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team today by emailing email@example.com
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
As an Alberta Not-for-Profit organization, Survivors Fighting for Change Foundation (SFC) is run by a Board of Directors that meets monthly with an Annual General Meeting that takes place in the 3rd week of January.
As we are a not-for-profit, we rely on donations from our supporters to help us cover our costs to aid in supporting victims and our awareness/Child ID kit events. Our budget is spent on court documents (for verifying charges), printing fees, accountant fees, and Child ID kits. Our organization is not able to provide charitable receipts for tax purposes, this is because our organization lobbies the government & courts for change through our federal and community petitions. Our team recognizes that there are several much-needed changes within our current system, so we have agreed that lobbying for these necessary changes was more important than receiving government funding and the ability to issue tax receipts. This means that we need help from our supporters to cover our operating costs. This includes everything from insurance, to supplies for our awareness events and child ID kits.

Canvassers are very important in helping us get our petitions into as many hands across Canada as possible. The more Canadians who are aware of the changes we are seeking, the more support we can get, which increases the likelihood of our petitions making real changes to better protect children across Canada. Canvassers collect signatures for our petitions at their own discretion. SFC provides instructions and petitions, and canvassers are free to collect signatures from friends, family, coworkers, neighbours, etc. Canvassers then mail the original copies back to SFC to be submitted to be certified.
