Description:  The Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, Canadian Environmental Grantmakers’ Network and the Charity Law Information Program present a webinar: Successfully funding First Nations communities in Canada in compliance with CRA guidance.
Moderated by: Ruth Richardson, Founder Small Change Fund
Featuring: Mark Blumberg, Charity lawyer and Editor, http://www.canadiancharitylaw.ca.
In 2009, a survey of Philanthropic Foundations of Canada members and Circle members identified that of the $3.5 million in grants currently made for work in First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, about two thirds of that amount was awarded to the non-aboriginal organizations working within these communities, and only one-third to the communities themselves. How can we increase philanthropy in First Nations Inuit and Métis communities? Join Mark Blumberg in a conversation about:
? Effectively funding qualified donees
? Important differences between funding qualified and non-qualified donees
? CRA’s new guidance “Using an Intermediary to Carry out a Charity’s Activities within Canada” with practical examples of permissible structured relationships
? Ideas for doing good that do not involve charities
? Opportunity for questions and answers.
