"I was first exposed to CharityCAN as a co-op student at the Richard Ivey School of Business in London, Ontario while I was completing my Masters degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Western Ontario. On the first day of my new job as a prospect researcher at Mackenzie Health Foundation in Vaughan, Ontario, I immediately signed up for a CharityCAN subscription."
Cristina Naccarato, Prospect Researcher, Mackenzie Health Foundation
"CharityCAN has proven to be an invaluable resource for The Royal Conservatory’s development department. It offers an unparalleled breadth and depth of up-to-date information about Canadian charitable giving, providing access to key databases such as NOZA, the CRA’s T3010 data, the corporate director search, and the Canadian Who’s Who. Its integrated search feature is also an incredible time-saver. CharityCAN is now the starting point for every prospect research project I undertake."
Danielle Taylor, Development Researcher, The Royal Conservatory
"Through our account at CharityCAN, with the click of a mouse, we can research a cause, a person or an organization and drill down to find comprehensive, factual information on any or all Canadian registered charities. This scan and drill approach has been very useful to me and my colleagues at the Donner Canadian Foundation.
It saves us a great deal of time."
Helen McLean, Executive Director, Donner Canadian Foundation
"CharityCAN provides access to all Canadian registered charities (large or small) and all
foundation officer affiliations (past or present) as well as individual donation
history through Noza Canada. Not only can I research donor prospects, but I can
provide analytical reports on non-profit competitors. Being in a sole prospect research shop,
I find CharityCAN to be extremely efficient in pulling information that I can transfer to
an Excel sheet to view or print. CharityCAN is easy to search and navigate, and search results
are easy to read and in a good-to-go report format. No hassle one stop shopping!"
Ana P. D'Avila, Advancement Researcher, Canadian Institute for Advanced Research
"CharityCAN is an essential resource for Canadian prospect researchers, and provides a suite of resources useful to
research shops both big and small. At the University of Toronto, we make regular use of the
Noza Canada, Elections Canada and Corporate Director databases, and are looking forward to
CharityCAN’s continued growth towards becoming a 'one stop shop' for Canadian fundraising research."
John Hermans, Director, Advancement Research, University of Toronto
Finally, a one-stop-shop to find information on individuals, foundations, and corporations
(and very reasonably priced). This resource (CharityCAN) has been invaluable to me over the past
year, and will be even more so over the coming year as my organization enters into a capital
Christine Thompson, CFRE, Manager, Major Gifts, Eva Initiatives, Toronto
CharityCAN is often the first resource I go to. While I typically start with an Integrated
Search, I also love the links within each search that allow me to quickly cross-check for
additional information on the person, foundation, corporation or charitable organization I am
interested in. Another plus is the prompt and excellent assistance CharityCAN’s staff provides.
Janet Speers, Prospect Researcher, RESOLVE Campaign, Calgary
CharityCAN integrates several very key prospecting tools, helping to keep our prospecting
assignments on track. CharityCAN's integration and historical content add to both the
efficiency and effectiveness of the work. A very useful and strategic resource!

CharityCAN has helped my research team save valuable time and energy when prospecting for constituents within this resource. How fortunate to have so many different key databases wrapped up in one hub called CharityCAN. I highly recommend it as a prospect research tool.
