Where Do Our Dollars Go?
Over the weeks leading up to the holidays, the Toronto Star published a series of reports on Toronto charities. Many people were shocked to see that a very large proportion of the money contributed to some organizations is directed towards administrative and fundraising costs rather than towards the clients and causes they serve. Some of our donors have asked where we fit in this picture, and we’re glad to answer, since we’re proud of our record. Using the same formula as The Star, with information from the T3010 tax return, we can show that only 9% of the money we raise goes into administration, while a full 89% goes directly into our services. (The remaining 2% is directed towards fundraising.) In fact, says Assistant Executive Director Bill Sinclair, "We rank with such organizations as United Way of Greater Toronto, as the most efficient in directing funds."
