REPORT August 10th

"As the demand for their programs and services is skyrocketing, Canada’s charities and non-profit organizations are facing a bleak future."

Cardus has "called on the federal government to match all donations made to Canadian charities on a one-to-one basis for four months, capping the federal amount at $1.25 billion. When married with the donations made directly to charities, it would mean up to a $2.5-billion injection of cash to the charity sector."
