Sector pulse & giving trends, with Duke Chang

In this episode, we are looking at the current state of the charitable sector, including demand, staffing, revenue, donation trends and how these will affect charities in the future. Charities have been strained for several years now, due to the pandemic and the rising cost of living which created unprecedented needs in our communities. Demand for services continues to rise and many organizations are struggling to keep up - 40% of charities have experienced a lasting increase in demand since the pandemic and 57% cannot meet current levels of demand, according to a survey commissioned by CanadaHelps for their annual Giving Report. To discuss the important findings from this year’s Giving Report, we’re grateful to discuss with Duke Chang, recently appointed CEO of CanadaHelps.
