2018 Financial Report
Our source of funds comes from donations made at Gatherings, Karma Classes and the sale of some items like Sheep Creek bracelets and t-shirts. All teachers that teach for us, the studio space we use, our website and social media, the tents we set up at the Gatherings, the murals in our yoga temple (the barn at Wolf Willow) is all given to us so graciously. What this means is we have almost zero expenses, only three, TD Bank service fees, Square Account fees and Eventbrite fees.
We only ask for some cost recovery in the $20 we request to cover food at our Gatherings. Some of this money goes back to the individual who purchased the food, the rest of the food is donated. We are asked all the time (and the answer is Yes): how can we possibly provide the incredibly nutritious meals at our Gatherings for an entire weekend for $20 per person? Our cooks are amazing!

Donations To Charity by Sheep Creek – History
In 2017 we gave $1,500 to Share One Pair and YYCHH from the funds raised in 2016.

In 2019 we will be giving $13,500 again to Grow Calgary, Leftovers and Cornerstone from funds raised in 2018.
Sheep Creek is not a registered charity; therefore, we cannot issue tax receipts. We are a 100% grassroots organization. We do not have our accounts audited (it would cost too much), and we have a better way: to be a totally open book. Everyone is welcome to look at our TD account at anytime to see where the money comes from and how and when it is distributed to the charities we support.
