The BC SPCA has earned an “A” rating for overall efficiency, donor stewardship and transparency in a recent survey of 100 Canadian charities by MoneySense magazine.
The magazine created Canada’s first charity rating system to find out which charities scored highest in areas such as fundraising efficiency, governance and transparency, compensation and overall charity efficiency. With 76.1 per cent of all donations going towards its programs and services, the BC SPCA earned the highest rating of the Canadian animal charities surveyed. In addition to receiving an A grade in overall charity efficiency, the society received an A for fundraising efficiency (with a cost of $17.21 to raise $100), an A in governance and transparency and an A- in reserve fund size (with six months of reserve funds on hand).
“The BC SPCA is very conscious of our responsibility to use donor dollars wisely to help the greatest number of abused, injured and homeless animals,” said Craig Daniell, CEO of the BC SPCA. “Our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers work extremely hard to ensure we steward our resources carefully and it is rewarding to see this reflected in the MoneySense survey.”
Each year, the BC SPCA provides care and protection to more than 34,000 animals. Your gift can help give a homeless, injured or abused animal a second chance. Please donate today.
