About Yellowknife Community Foundation:

Notice to Donors: Charity Intelligence initially reported on community foundations given the large size of donations these foundations receive. In subsequent research and discussions with community foundations, their operating model does not fit with Charity Intelligence's analysis. Community foundations have significantly different cost structures, invested funds, and results that are not comparable with other charities. Donors looking to establish funds within community foundations should assess: 1. prior investment return track records, 2. restrictions on how much is paid out of funds each year to charities (the payout ratio maximum and minimum), 3. the quality of research provided in helping donors grant to charities, and 4. annual fees. Community foundations can provide services making giving easy, as do other financial service providers. Donors should talk with their financial advisor.
