It is only through deeper understanding that real change can begin.
For the first time in Canada, a comprehensive analysis is underway to gather insight into the state of the relationship between funders and not-for-profits.
In the first phase we surveyed over 600 Canadian charities. The findings reveal exactly what the pressing issues are for these essential social responders and are intended to open up the conversation. It is only by strengthening the relationship between grantees and not-for-profit organizations that shared goals can be accomplished successfully – whether it’s the eradication of poverty, gender equity, reconciliation with Indigenous people, or reversing climate change. Through this examination of current funding practices and real-life experiences lived by charities receiving grants from various sources, we are taking a first step toward helping you strengthen the Canadian social sector.
It is time to be honest with each other if we want the sector to thrive. The relationship between funders and charities needs to be healthy, efficient, and collaborative. It starts with hearing the answers to some tough questions as a starting point to a bigger conversation.
