Don’t Laugh - here is a press release for the launch of GlobalPhilanthropy.ca!
I will be in Vancouver talking about “Planned Giving in a Global World” in April 2008 at the CAGP annual conference.
Here are some handy resources and links for Canadian Charities conducting activities outside of Canada.
I have included some interesting quotes on philanthropy from Seymour Shulich, a prominent Toronto businessperson and philanthropist, who recently gave $20 million to the Technion in Israel, including “I learned from a prominent Torontonian that money is like fertilizer: If you pile it up, it stinks, and if you spread it around, you can grow some beautiful things.”
Thank you Jon and Gabriela for setting up this website in two days.
The Globe & Mail recently wrote about Canada Revenue Agency audits of Canadian charities involved in disaster relief including the tsunami. The large number of charities that were non-compliant amongst the CRA sample will not improve the public’s confidence in the international development sector.
Do you require legal advice with respect to Canadian or Ontario non-profits or charities?
