About Canadian Charity Impact Fund:

The Canadian Charity Impact Fund (CCIF) is a pool of 10 diverse high-impact charities helping Canadians in need. The fund was put together by Charity Intelligence (Ci) using social return on investment analysis to measure the amount of social value created by charities per dollar donated. Charity Intelligence is carrying out this analysis with its proven program evaluation partner, Success Markets, Inc (SMI).

The charities in the CCIF provide the highest overall value for Canadians in need from a group of excellent charities that Ci and SMI have analyzed in detail. For every $1 donated to the CCIF, the 10 charities are expected to produce at least $9 in social value with the potential of $15 or more, compared to an estimated $2 for an average charity.

The charities in the CCIF include: Boundless School, Calgary Food Bank, Eva's Initiatives, East York Learning Experience, Fresh Start Recovery, Fort York Food Bank, Inn from the Cold Society, Second Harvest, Youth Fusion, and Youth Without Shelter.
