CharityFocus is a one-stop source for information about Canada’s 85,000 plus registered charities. This is an innovative tool to improve transparency and accountability, while allowing charities to describe in a more meaningful way the important work they do and to tell the story of their organization’s impact. It includes information that charities already provide through their Public Information Returns (T3010B data) and provides charities with the ability to upload additional information that will allow them to contextualize the data. For charities a key feature of CharityFocus is the “T3010 Quick Prep,” an interactive self-assessment tool to help charities ensure the accuracy of data provided to CRA.
