    I stumbled upon this charitable status page for Canada and thought that I would look for the Watchtower Society of Canada.

    As they say the report is incomplete because it lacks the normal auditors process details. But donations received $64.4 Canadian Dollars! forwarded on as is usual. That is a huge amount of money.

    I read the report. Even though they received $64 million in donations, they were in the red by $23 million and they have $21 million in bank loans!

    Administrative costs as % of revenues was only 2.7%. So where's the money being spent?

    Donations are clearly down.

    2015 & 2016 -- Almost $80 million each year

    2017 Less than $65 million

    That's a 20% decrease!

    If donations are declining the same way in the US and Europe, then they are definitely feeling a financial pinch.

    And what "Charitable activities" did they spend it all on??
    Did any JW receive financial aid, or food, or clothing, or shelter from the Society?

    Or is it just a "one-way street" of donations?

    Charitable my ass...

    I am of good conscience knowing not on red cent of those donations came from me or mrs hoser.

    It must be all the Bible’s that are printing to give away that’s costing so much. Cause that’s what they do, right?
