A few days ago, Socon or Bust reported about how Chalice obtained the highest rating among Canadian International Aid Organizations.
The Catholic Register has also written an article about this.
The Charity 100, a study released online through MoneySense in June, was designed to provide Canadians with an accurate picture of the top 100 charities in the country. Grouping organizations by category, such as health services, hospital foundations or environment, the study ranked each charity under a variety of criteria.
Chalice, an international child sponsorship charity, finished atop its category with an overall grade of “A,” largely due to its efficiency and transparency. With 93 per cent of its total spending dedicated to its aid programs, and using on average only four dollars to raise every $100, Chalice scored consistently high in efficiency rankings among the 15 charities in the international aid category.
MoneySense also placed Chalice in the top three for its governance and transparency. Among the 100, Chalice stood with a group of charities tied for fifth. (Source)
The last point on governance and transparency is very important. Donors need to know where their money is going and how it’s being administered. Transparency is something that is extremely deficient at Development and Peace.
Once again, our congratulations to Chalice!
