CCFC scores high on MoneySense's list of top charities
Charity 100 ranks international child-centred charity with an A-
TORONTO — Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) has received an early Christmas gift with news that it has received an A- on Toronto-based MoneySense magazine’s 2017 list of the most fiscally responsible charities.
The list is based on four main categories — program-spending efficiency, fundraising costs, governance and reserve fund size. “Think of the ‘Charity 100’ as an aid to your giving decisions; we do part of the work, but you have to decide where your donations are going to have the greatest impact,” reads the “MoneySense Charity 100” report, based on a survey filled out by a representative from each organization.
This year, CCFC is celebrating positive program results in its six countries of operation; the distribution of more than $100,000 to countries in need of emergency assistance, such as Ethiopia and Haiti; and successful partnerships with the Canadian government and other non-governmental agencies to launch million-dollar projects.
“As an independent Canadian charity, we are proud to have made it on the ‘MoneySense Charity 100’ list once again, on behalf of our donors and the children and communities we serve,” says Jeff Hogan, V.P. of Finance & Corporate Services at CCFC. “We are committed to empowering communities to create a safe place for children to grow, laugh, learn and play so they can achieve their full potential.”
