2019 Top 100 Rated Charities - Charity Intelligence's Highest Rated Charities

Every year, Chaity Intelligence rates charities across Canada and we are proud to again make their list of the top 100 charities in Canada. The ratings are based on accountability, impact, financial transparancy, cost efficiency, and the need for funding.

You can read more about the results of their ratings here

MacLean's has been helping Canadians make informed choices about their donations and we're proud to make their top 100 Charity list for the second year in a row (the list was formerly known as the Moneysense top 100 list.) Thanks to all our donors, funders, community partners, volunteers and staff for helping us improve the lives of the city's most vulnerable people!

Rankings for the list are based on:

Finacial efficiency: 

  1. how much of a charity’s total revenue is eaten up by administrative costs;
  2. how much it costs a charity to raise a dollar, calculating the percentage of donations and special events revenue eaten up by fundraising costs;
  3. effective financial reserves; and
  4. top-paid employee salary

Financial transparency:

  1. how well charities communicate their missions and impact to the public; and
  2. the presence of audited financial statements.

Financial efficiency data is sourced from Charity Intelligence, a research organization that analyzes Canadian charities based on financial statements, the most accurate way to measure financial information.
