Stephen Lewis Foundation,

The Financial Post (FP) recently published their second annual Charities of the Year report card. Once again the Stephen Lewis Foundation was pleased to be included as one of the top 25 Canadian charities to support during this giving season. In the words of the authors of the report card: "We identified 25 large, national charities, that in addition to doing virtuous work, also met our highest standards for accountability, financial transparency and the efficient use of donations." All charities making the FP's top 25 list spent less than 35% of all donated dollars on fundraising, spent more than 65% of their annual budgets on programmes and have their full audited financial statement available online. They also could demonstrate the charitable work they do and talk about the impact they are making "using plain language and quantifiable performance metrics."
