In March 2013, the Canada Revenue Agency agreed to delay revoking the charitable staus of May or Joe Fontana’s Trinity Global Support Foundation until the charity had its day in Court. That day occurred on April 18 at the Federal Court of Appeal, and on April 23rd, the Court dismissed the charity’s appeal. The revocation may be due to Trinity’s link to Global Learning Giffine Initative, a program that has been termed by the CRA as “an illegitimate tax shelter”. Trinity may appeal the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal.
