BC SPCA one of six Canadian charities to earn A+ rating in MoneySense magazine’s charity survey
June 27, 2012
The BC SPCA is one of only six Canadian charities to earn an A+ - the highest overall rating - in MoneySense magazine’s 2012 survey that rates 100 Canadian charities for overall efficiency, transparency and donor stewardship.
The magazine created Canada’s first charity rating system to determine which charities score highest in categories 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 and a cost of only $16.47 to raise $100, the BC SPCA earned the highest rating possible in the category of fundraising efficiency as well as A+ or A ratings in every other category.
“We are honoured to be among the handful of Canadian charities to earn this top rating,” said Craig Daniell, CEO of the BC SPCA. “Everyone in our organization – from our volunteers to our shelter and program staff to our volunteer Board of Directors – puts their heart and soul into our services for B.C.’s most vulnerable animals. As an organization that is reliant on community support to fund all of our programs and services, we take the stewardship of our donor contributions very seriously and it is extremely rewarding to see these efforts recognized in the MoneySense survey.”
