Charity Focus

we made it easier for Canadians to access and understand basic information about Canada’s 86,000+ charities

The Charity Focus website grew in popularity in 2013 and is fast becoming Canada’s go-to bilingual source of information about charities. In addition to showing several years’ worth of financial details, the site makes it possible for charities to upload information about their programs and results.

why this matters

  • We make accessing this information easy through the Charity Focus website because we understand that public accountability, transparency and good governance are — and should be - important to Canadians.
  • People want to be able to easily research and understand basic information about the charities they support — or plan to support.
“We pride ourselves on being transparent. Charity Focus gives donors more options, and allows them to see and appreciate where their important dollars are going.” — Erin Boudreau, Covenant House Toronto
