Fundamentals of Running a Private or Public Foundation in Canada

June 28, 2019 | By: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) Mark Blumberg

Private and Public Foundations are an important part of the Canadian charity sector.  The Blumbergs' Fundamentals of Running a Private or Public Foundation in Canada on Tuesday September 17, 2019 will focus on compliance issues with an emphasis on those specifically relevant to running a private or public foundation that is a registered charity in Canada.  While some foundations give out a small amount each year – others are giving hundreds of millions.  Large gifts might have been $10-20 million a few years ago but are now $100 million and over.  

There are over 10,000 foundations (5800 private and 5000 public) and CRA is increasingly auditing them as CRA prioritizes higher risk registered charities with higher assets and expenditures for audits.  It is vital that directors and staff of foundation understand their legal obligations to avoid problems such as compliance agreements, penalties, revocation, and directors and officers becoming ineligible individuals.
