Have you ever wondered which fundraising methods are typical for your type of charity or non-profit vs some other type? The purpose of the dashboard below is to allow you to explore the answer to this question using Canada’s T3010 Charity Tax Return data from the 2017 tax year.
In this dashboard, charity type is defined in one of two levels of granularity. The first is a set of very broad types: “Benefits to Community”, “Education”, “Health”, “Religion”, “Welfare”, and “Other”.
The second is much more specific, including descriptions such as “Institutions of Learning”, “Hospitals”, “Military Units”, “Protection of Animals” and so forth. There are 56 descriptions overall!
To get started, select either ‘Charity Type’ or ‘Charity Description’ from the top blue bar, select options from the white text box underneath, and soon you’ll see graphs and a table showing you which fundraising methods are typical (or rare) for your type of charity or non-profit vs some other type. The key measurement in the graphs and table is the percent of charities using that fundraising method.
