Top 10 Impact Charities of 2017

Source: Charityintelligence.ca | December 2017

Charity Intelligence believes that the key question donors should ask of a charity is how much impact it is having per dollar of donation. Rather than asking “For every dollar I give, what percent is going to the cause?” we should ask, “for every dollar I give, how many dollars’ worth of social value are being created?”, or simply, “how much good is my donation doing?”

This impact can be measured directly using what is known as Social Return on Investment (SROI), which is a ratio that measures the amount of value created per dollar donated. Some charities create high impact per dollar and others do not.

Charity Intelligence has chosen the following Top 10 Impact Charities of 2017 based on impact per dollar donated:

Aunt Leah’s Place

Calgary Urban Project Society

Doctors Without Border

Eva’s Initiatives

Food for Life

Fort York Food Bank

Fresh Start Recovery Centre
