PCCF approved as a Charity: PCCF President

The Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF) has clarified that the organization is a non-profit organization registered with the Ontario provincial Ministry of Consumer Relations.

The clarification was issued by Romy Rafael, President of PCCF, in view of an article, entitled, “Is PCCF a registered charity or not?”, written by one Romeo P. Marq...uez and disseminated through multiple email recipients.

Rafael said the non-profit corporation was approved by the Ontario provincial government as a charity with Ontario Corporation Number 1824607.

Rafael also cited numbers 1 and 2 of the Articles of Incorporation of the PCCF as follows:

1. To relieve poverty in developing nations by providing food and other basic supplies to persons in need.

2. To provide necessities of life to victims of disasters.

Rafael said the writer of the story mixed up the registration of a non-profit corporation under the provincial government and registration of a charity organization with the CRA for tax purposes.
