Charities have a political problem, says Cardus president
B.C. Catholic covers the Cardus event, "Charity has a Political Problem" at the Rideau Club:
Charitable organizations in Canada have a political problem, which has resulted in less contributions and volunteers, says the president of a Christian think tank devoted to the renewal of civil society.
â€œA declining number of people are giving lessâ€”less time, less money, less of themselvesâ€”to their neighbours, their communities, and their country,â€ said Cardus president Michael Van Pelt, June 13, at a reception drawing politicians, lobbyists, and charitable organizations. â€œAnd nothing, at the moment anyway, seems to be on the horizon to change that.â€
