17 comments on Canada s top-rated charities

I have to wonder at this rating? How can a food bank possibly afford to pay a top salary of $1.46 Million? To cover just this ONE SALARY with the listed efficiency rating of .56/$100 they have to be raising MANY billions of dollars. Or are my calculations wrong? I tried to go to the linked web address for this charity but access is Forbidden. Do salaries not figure in costs? Possibly an outside person or group underwrites the salaries?

Lisa, the top salary is $146,057 and is one of the lowest on the list of 100 charities. The Calgary Food Bank website host was hit with a virus/security issue and the site is temporarily down, we should have a temporary site back up with a new host today.

Clearly, there is no question. One solhud put their money into government-registered accounts despite such things as the. for one. Before you reach the limit, you solhud take advantage of all it has to offer (tax savings, government guarantee). Sadly only 3% of Canadians actually meet this limit.

This was just the article I was lnooikg for!I actually WANT to pay dividend tax as I am in a low tax bracket ( 37K; my wife is not, however) so i have all of our non-registered money in my name.I hope to make substantially more in one or two years but because I m in such a low bracket to me it makes sense to accumulate RRSP room and have these money making dividends where I ll pay close to no taxes on them due to my low income level. I think that considering my low tax bracket and the favourable dividend tax rate that it is almost as good as a TFSA.Thank you for the help.

I m not at all surprised to see Chalice Canada in the Top Charities list. For years, I gave to World Vision, but was annoyed by the amount they spent on fundraising. I found Chalice Canada is doing the same work more efficiently. I have to be careful with my money, and I expect the charities I give to will do the same.
My favourite charity that deserves recognition is Canadian Food for Children ( not to be confused with Canadian Feed the Children). They are a lean operation, with, as far as I know, no paid staff. Unfortunately, I believe Money Sense s methodology would exclude them. Unlike most charities, they don t raise money primarily, but gifts in kind. They solve two problems. By accepting donations of food, clothing, household goods, furniture, building material, etc. they divert a lot of what we would discard as waste. They fill ship containers with donated goods destined for a different part of the world each day, At the same time, they are helping the poor of the world with needed goods, which might not be available to them if they were only sent the funds. My guess is that a fair amount of the monetary donations go to food staples and shipping costs. Worthy charity in my book.

Delighted to see Red Cross has been on this list consistently. As part of the world s largest humanitarian organization and founded in 1859 in Switzerland, it is impressive that the Red Cross can assist every resident in Canada if they are affected by local or a personal disaster, and that they are also able to assist people around the world on a moment s notice. Very impressive.
It also helps so many people through First Aid, CPR, Swimming, Anti-Violence and Anti-Bullying courses. Thank you Red Cross!

Best and Worst Charities for Your Donations – Consumer Reports #global #giving

#best charity


Best and Worst Charities for Your Donations

‘Tis the season for charitable giving. But before you write a check, make sure you do a charity check-up. The sad truth is that not all nonprofits put their money where their mission is.

Earlier this year, the Federal Trade Commission and law enforcement partners from every state and the District of Columbia charged four cancer charities with defrauding consumers of more than $187 million. Instead of helping cancer patients, the heads of the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, Children’s Cancer Fund of America, and the Breast Cancer Society allegedly funneled donations into luxury cruises, college tuition for family members and friends, gym memberships, sporting event and concert tickets, and even dating website memberships.

And the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe led H. Art Taylor, president of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, to warn consumers about spurious solicitations for humanitarian help. (Use our advice to find out whether a charity is a scam .)

Then there’s the fact that even without being fraudulent, some charities routinely spend a larger amount of their donors’ dollars on administrative and fundraising costs than on programs that benefit people in need.

Save time and money this holiday season

Let us help you make the smartest decisions on gifts and more.

Similar-sounding names can further confuse consumers. For example, while the Leukemia Lymphoma Society allocates $19 to raise $100 and funnels 73 percent of its budget to programs, the Childhood Leukemia Foundation spends $65 for every $100 it raises and targets just 27 percent of its budget to programs.

So before you donate, check out organizations you’re considering with charity watchdogs, which make it easier to see where your dollars have the greatest impact. The three major ones are: the BBB Wise Giving Alliance. Charity Navigator. and CharityWatch. They evaluate charities by looking at a number of factors, including how much of your donation actually reaches the causes you want to support.

To get the approval of the Wise Giving Alliance, for example, organizations must spend at least 65 percent of their donations on charitable program activities, and fundraising costs can’t exceed 35 percent.

CharityWatch gives its top rating to about a third of the more than 600 charities it evaluates. Charity Navigator, which looks at more than 8,000 organizations, many of them small and regional, lets you see which charities rate high by metro area. It also provides provides easy-to-follow lists, such as “10 top-notch charities” and, conversely, “10 consistently low-rated charities.”

Below are examples of high- and low-rated charities in various categories. As part of of this report on the best and worst charities, we looked for agreement—on positive and negative traits—among the three major watchdogs. Because not every group is evaluated by all three watchdogs, we relied in some cases on agreement by just two. We also left out highly rated charities that CharityWatch says obtain a considerable amount of income from the government (such as Save the Children).

In short, to ensure that your dollars will make the most difference, do your homework before you donate.

I Donated My Eggs For The Money – And I Don – #39; t

#how much do you get paid to donate eggs


I Donated My Eggs For The Money — And I Don’t Regret It

Throughout life, we use our bodies up, testing its capabilities and limits. Nights spent drinking too much or eating too much are followed by days nursing our bodies back to health with cleanses, massages and hours rolling around in bed. What you do with your body represents who you are and what you stand for. The tattoo of a flower on my right hip bone is really the mark of an eighteen-year-old’s defiance, and even as it fades and distorts with age, I look fondly down at it as a tiny memory drawn on my skin.

A small puncture two or three inches to the left of my navel is the latest sign of a rebellious twenty something. It’s a reminder of how I pushed the boundaries of what I would do for a little cash in a faltering economy, and tested the limits of what my body can handle.

Earlier this summer I decided to sell my eggs. After an extensive background check, therapy sessions, self-administered hormone shots, daily ultra sounds and an egg retrieval surgery, I received a check and released my eggs to a family I’ve never met, and hoped they would take good care of the person my eggs helped to produce.

Like so many of my peers, I possess a Liberal Arts Degree. Also like so many of my peers, I have found myself (on several occasions) broke, screaming at my parents on the phone after leaving another interview, begging for money to pay rent and eat. So what do you do until your dreams are realized? How do you pay rent and how do you eat?

For me the answer was to sell my eggs for $8,000. During college my school newspaper was constantly running ads titled, “Donate Your Eggs. $8,000-$15,000 – All ethnicities and all majors welcome.” At the time I couldn’t imagine doing it. I never truly thought donating my eggs would be an option I would need to pursue. Fast forward three years, and suddenly I started to take those ads a little more seriously.

A friend who had done it a few months before pointed me to an ad she had responded to. The ad redirected me to a short questionnaire.

Name, age, do you have a college degree, have you ever tested positive for an STD, how many partners have you had, how did you grandfather die? And so on and so on.

I muddled through the questionnaire trying to answer the questions as accurately as possible but often filling in the blanks with guesses. As soon as I finished, I printed off a copy of my passport and mailed the details of my life in a 14-page document to a clinic somewhere in Midtown Manhattan. Around 10 or 11 days later I received a call from a woman asking me to come in and meet her.

In the weeks leading up to the procedure, my mind began filling up with reasons why I didn’t want to do it: “This is surgery, I could die” and, “There’s going to be a kid out there that looks like me. weird!” But in the end the $8,000 outweighed all my fears.

I also couldn’t help thinking that as I get older, the idea of having children of my own seems less and less appealing. For women it’s sometimes feels like once we get to a certain age, we are destined to hand over control of our bodies to another being, along with whatever hopes and dreams we had for ourselves. I didn’t want that for myself, but that made me feel selfish. Perhaps selling my eggs would relieve some of that guilt?

The first time I visited the clinic, I sat in the waiting room listening to music and reading a book, not noticing the stares I was receiving from the other people there. After a few minutes I received three taps on my shoulder. “Jasmine?” A small woman wearing large glasses quickly scurried me out of the waiting room and whispered into my ear, “I hate it when they seat my donors out here; everyone stares at you like little chickens.” I looked back at the wide-eyed, hopeful women behind me and proceeded down the narrow white hallway, feeling like a little chicken.

The first day started off like any other routine visit to the doctor’s office. We sat and looked over paper work, blood was drawn, and then I was given an ultrasound to make sure everything looked OK. After I met with a therapist to make sure I wasn’t crazy, the doctor warned me that I might become overwhelmed with emotion during the process and not to be afraid to call her.

That’s what happened about four days later as my hands began to shake, when I had to stick the first needle into my abdomen. All of my fears over what I was doing had manifested itself into one tiny needle, but I had gone too far to go back now. “No drinking, no sex and no exercise until the end of the process” the nurse told me. She showed me how to administer the hormone shots myself, and off I went.

I returned to the clinic every few days to check my vitals and get another ultrasound. As the days and weeks passed I had very few noticeable symptoms other than boredom since the process had pretty much replaced my social life. I occupied my time researching the drugs that I was on, which led me to infertility websites and group forums where I read the stories of women who had been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for years. I liked the idea of helping a family who was reproductively challenged and was willing to do everything in their power to have a child. Their struggle made me feel like they would love any future kids my eggs helped make that much more.

Each day that I went back to the clinic, I had three or four more follicle pouches filled with eggs popping up in my uterus. Everyday something new was happening in my body. Two days before I was scheduled for my retrieval, I had more than 20 follicles in my uterus, and each morning the nurse waved the cold metal rod up, down and around searching for more follicle pouches. The more follicles that appeared, the more uncomfortable I became, and the more anxiety I began to feel. I didn’t know much about what was happening to my body, and although the nurses and doctors did their best to answer my questions, I wasn’t always sure what questions to ask.

Finally the big day arrived, and luckily it was a pretty painless and quick procedure. I was completely sedated, and the whole thing only took 30 minutes. The next day I took the antibiotics that were prescribed, and that is is when things started to take a turn for the worst. The following four days are kind of a blur, but I know they involved a lot of puking and a lot of trips back to the clinic. I was extremely dehydrated, and they needed to administer an IV to get liquids into my body. My body was rejecting everything I tried to put into it. It was clearly screaming at me, fed up and shutting down until further notice.

Around day three the pain became excruciating. Apparently I had developed something called ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome and I needed to have a procedure to drain all of the excess fluid from my abdominal cavity. After they drained everything from my body and inserted what felt like a suction cup into my vagina and literally sucked the liquid out, I immediately felt better. I slept for another five or six hours at the clinic. When I opened my eyes, for the first time in days I didn’t feel like a zombie. I was going to survive!

My body and I learned a lot about each other during those two months, and I gained a new appreciation for what it is capable of doing not only for me but for others others. One egg donation is all my body could survive, and I would never do it again, but I don’t regret it. I needed the money, and I found a legal way to deal with my financial situation without another call to my parents. That felt good emotionally, even if it was painful physically.

And long after the cash is gone, I will still be able to look down at my navel where the bruise has faded and think about the tiny body I may have helped create.

Receipt Template – Microsoft Word Templates #charities #list

#donation receipt template


Receipt Template

Floria Alex Nov 14th, 2013 Comments Off on Receipt Template

Businesses big and small need several tools and formats available to conduct their business efficiently. These may include stationary, formats for submitting estimates, quotes and invoices, and even standard letters to thank customers for their business. Another tool necessary in the business owner’s toolbox is templates for different kinds of receipts he or she may have to submit to the customers. Whether you are running a for-profit or a non-profit organization, and even if your business is still operating from your garage while you grow enough for formal office space, you will need receipts available for each situation. Below, you will find some of the most common receipts issued by businesses and the use for each of them.

Sales receipt-

Perhaps the most basic kind of receipts, it outlines the services rendered. The most important information reflected on it is the date of the sale, a description of the purchase, the unit price, the total price for the transaction, the payment amount and form of payment. This is true even if you sell a service and not tangible merchandise. Often, the sales receipt may be combined with a copy of the credit card charge slip if your client decides to pay with a credit card. Otherwise, it may be a document that is generated in duplicates or triplicates so the customer can keep one for his records and the business owner can keep one for accounting purposes. The sales receipt can often be used as proof of purchase if later on the customer seeks a refund, replacement or repair.

Donation Receipt-

This is specific to non-profit organization that are legally allowed issue a donation receipt. In this kind of receipt, the organization acknowledges having gotten a gift from a person, whether that is monetary or gift-in-kind such as clothes or toys. The donation receipt should include the donation date and amount as well as form of payment. The donation date and amount are especially important if the donor expects to obtain a tax deduction due to his generosity. The charity should also keep a copy for accounting purposes.

Petty Cash Receipt-

This kind of receipt is almost exclusively for internal use. For those businesses that keep petty cash at hand, they want to make sure a receipt is issued each time someone needs to withdraw from petty cash funds. This receipt should not only contain the amount and the reason or the need, but most importantly the name of the person who received the petty cash. Ultimately, the person signing for the cash is responsible for bringing back a service or sales receipt justifying the initial withdrawal.

Service receipt-

Very similar to the sales receipt, the service receipt is more specific about the service that was provided and limitations of any warranty or specifics surrounding it. This kind of receipt needs to include the date of service, specifics of the service provided, cost and form/terms of payment.

For those looking to simplify their lives and line up all the necessary formats for their business, considering a downloadable receipt template is a wise decision. Designed to be easily manipulated and customized, these receipts can hold all the necessary information while still reflecting your corporate identity. Having all these forms at hand and at your fingertips will allow the business owner to worry about the business itself and not the ancillary and support functions that can be time-consuming. Here we are providing some professionally designed receipt templates and we hope these templates will help you a lot in designing your own receipt templates.

Cord blood is the blood that remains in the placenta and umbilical cord after a baby is born. It is rich in stem cells, which can help to cure many life threatening diseases.

The stem cells found in cord blood restore the function of the patient s immune and blood producing systems. It is an alternative to using bone marrow, with the advantage of being immediately available when required.

Following the birth of a baby, the placenta and umbilical cord are usually thrown away along with these life saving stem cells.
