We are adding some exciting new functionality with CharityData.ca First, it is easy to see what gifts a Canadian registered charity gives to another Canadian registered charity on the CRA website. But what if you want to know which charities gave funds to a particular charity? Now you can do this on CharityData.ca by looking under the "Fundraising" tab. Second, we are going to be updating the data used on the site to include all 2016 data and some 2017 data. Third, we have added a number of new ways to search or sort all charities on the "Advanced Charity Search Page" Page. There are now about 30 ways to filter or search. Here is some more information on Charitydata.ca:
The charity sector in Canada is vitally important. Charitydata.cabeta provides some information on registered charities as disclosed by those charities in their T3010 annual return. The information provided on this website is provided “as is”, subject to our disclaimer, and may not be accurate and/or complete. We hope that you find charitydata.ca helpful.
Here is a CRA document we recently received through the ATIP system Posting New Content on the CRA's Charities and Giving webpages. If you are wondering how difficult it is for the Charities Directorate to even post the simplest information this chart will help. The short answer - it is difficult. While bloggers can put up information in minutes the CRA system can takes months, years and even decades to get a document published online. I am still waiting for CRA to release their guidance on religion, the first consultation draft was done about 9 years ago! Also CRA has been using the religion guidance internally for many year - but except for here it is not yet published by them.
