(July 12, 2020) The impact of the global pandemic and ongoing protests to address systemic racism have made apparent the fissures of inequity in Canadian society and in societies the world over.
The charity sector is not exempt from this hierarchy of wealth. Even among statements of generosity and intentions of altruism, questions arise about the amount of wealth being amassed in corners of the charitable sector, the tax policies that allow that wealth to accumulate, and the needs that go unmet because of the “hoarding” of wealth.
Subscribe now to find out where wealth is amassed in the charity sector in Canada with The Charity Report’s recently published study Where Wealth Resides: The funding of philanthropy in Canada
In addition to receiving Where Wealth Resides, subscribers to The Charity Report receive additional monthly intelligence reports on issues facing the charity sector.
The study includes the information on the top 500 private, community foundations, and donor advised funds (DAFS) in Canada:
- How many foundations are spending the regulated 3.5% disbursement quota (DQ)
- How much money could be generated by increasing the DQ to 10% for 5 years
- How many of the country’s largest private foundations have no public face
- The nature of the demographic make-up of the board and staff of Canada’s top foundations
- How much of the money foundations spend actually goes to qualified grantees
- The amount of tax credits issued by private and community foundations
- What we don’t know about DAFs
