We are thrilled to have been selected by Charity Intelligence Canada as one of 10 High Impact Charities.

If you donate $100 to a charity and they create $200 worth of social value, that is good, but if the charity can create $500 worth of value, that is even better. Charity Intelligence’s new Canadian Charity Impact Fund highlights 10 charities that, as a group, are likely to produce $900 in value or more from a $100 gift.

Charity Intelligence believes that the key question donors should ask of a charity is how much impact it is having per donation dollar. Rather than asking “For every dollar I give, what percent is going to the cause?” we should ask, “for every dollar I give, how many dollars’ worth of social value are being created?”, or simply, “how much good is my donation doing?”
