Charity Intelligence is fiercely independent. To give donors the best facts and our honest opinion, Charity Intelligence is funded entirely by donors and our work is for donors. Please note, unlike other charity accreditations, Charity Intelligence does not receive any money from the charities we rate.
I think Charity Intelligence does Canadians a great service in vetting charities.... I appreciate that Charity Intelligence is independent, even financially from the charities it rates ... believe me, this goes a long way." comments from a charity executive, 3-star charity

Ci's mission: to provide Canadian donors with information that helps them make informed and intelligent giving decisions to have the greatest impact.
Information on charities crosses our desks in three ways: Donor requests for information on charities, charity self-submission, and Ci's active search for excellence in addressing key bottlenecks in Canada. For each charity, we analyze its audited financial statements, annual reports, websites, and T3010 CRA filing. This information is posted for all Canadians to read and be informed donors.
Ci is transparent with our methods of analyzing a charity. Ci is willing to share and provide you with the tools necessary to give intelligently. We encourage donors to become informed and will assist you in any way possible as part of Donor Services.
For Charity Representatives
1. Charity name and charitable registration number;
2. Two most recent audited financial statements in full, with notes;
3. Annual reports, brochures, newspaper articles (any information you have easily at hand that may be useful for us in understanding your organization and its work); and
4. If you have any evaluation of your service and programs, these would be most useful.
