Think tank wants governments to lauch donation-matching programs for charities
REPORT April 15th

Cardus is calling on the government to help charities during the COVID-19 pandemic, reports the Toronto Sun. 

“The draw on charities is the highest when the economic situation is at its lowest,” says Brian Dijkema, Cardus Vice President of External Affairs. “The challenge in this particular case, though, is that charities are also finding it the toughest to draw and raise funds that they need to provide those services. So we think there’s an opportunity for the government and society to play a role.”
