About Manning Foundation:
Founded in 2007, the Manning Foundation (MF) strives to fund the education of people about the tools, principles, ethics and values of participatory democracy.
The Foundation funds the development of training courses that aim to strengthen the knowledge, skills, ethical foundations, communication and leadership capacities of front-line participants in the democratic process. These courses may be customized by third parties for delivery to political volunteers, campaign teams, political staff, interest groups, and candidates for public office. MF also funds research projects that will help inform policy debate, bridge knowledge gaps, and develop core curriculum for political education and training programs. This research is undertaken by third parties, under contract, or by Fellows of the Foundation.
MF funds an annual national public opinion survey on Canadian public attitudes toward major policy issues, including the extent to which Canadians share conservative and other political values. The latest edition of this survey was released in January 2015.
Administrative costs are 3% of revenues and fundraising costs represent 5% of donations.
The Foundation has negative funding reserves due to a $1.4m term loan, which is expected to mature in June 2017.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by MF. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
