The Veritas Foundation aims to be Canada's authoritative source for participating in the country's charitable sector and evaluating its effectiveness and impact.
Our vision is to foster a thriving Canadian charitable sector where the most impactful philanthropic pursuits are celebrated and supported by donor capital.
The Veritas Foundation is committed to making sustainable improvements to the Charitable sector through its innovative research, management and granting programs. In addition to offering the Veritas Foundation Giving Fund, a Donor Advised Fund, the foundation offers grants and awards linked to independent advice, information, thought leadership, and comprehensive reviews of Canadian registered charities, all within a unique VScore program framework.
Finding a Great Charity is like finding a needle in a haystack
There are 86,592 registered charities listed on the directorate with CRA, and another 84,408 not-for-profit organizations in Canada. How do you choose? We help!
Interpreting how a charity is performing is complicated
In the absence of a universally adopted methodology to evaluate how a Charity is actually performing, how do you decide what charity to support? We provide the information you need to make your decisions.
Holding charities accountable feels wrong
In the charitable sector – we rely on the “good will” economy, trust, and public policy to “regulate” the behaviours of organizations. Helping you create your own Legacy of Giving is today's newest way to participate!
