Testimonials


Cynthia Foo
Director, Foundation Relations
University of Toronto

"CharityCAN’s most recent improvement—to have an ability to see who gave to any particular charity (not just grants made by charities)—is, in my opinion, an unparalleled feature. The fact that results are able to be ordered by year and amounts, and detail on the type of gifts are included wherever possible (e.g. Annual Gift, etc), makes this new feature incredibly powerful. These additions make the prospecting process so much quicker and easier. Thank you so much for incorporating what I’m sure is a wish list item on not just my list, but on every fundraiser’s list everywhere."

Maura Doyle
Former Director, Resource Development
United Way of KFL&A

"Working in the not-for-profit sector means that we do more with less. Both discretionary funds and time are at a premium and our results are crucial to allow us to provide the programs and services we offer our clients. CharityCAN is a tremendous tool to use as a fundraiser, allowing me speedy access to fulsome information that aids in refining focus, leading to better and more meaningful donor interactions, with improved results."

Amber De'Niese
Manager, Fund Development Capacity Building
YMCA Canada

"CharityCAN was a great resource for finding individuals and corporations that could support our organization. CharityCAN offers multiple search options based on the specific information you are seeking, and provided us with detailed profiles for each prospect."

Catherine Desrochers
Donor Relations
McGill University

"It was great working with Anderson from Third Sector Publishing as a sponsor for the 2nd Annual Canadian Regional workshop for the Association of Donor Relations Professionals. Throughout the day, several attendees approached me, very excited about [CharityCAN's] research and data capabilities (which my organization already benefits from!)."

Sheila Marie Larin
Senior Associate, Prospect Management & Research
Trillium Health Partners Foundation

"CharityCAN is working out well for our organization. We find the Integrated Search feature especially helpful because it makes researching so much more efficient having access to multiple sources in one location."

Preeti Gill
Research Manager
Vancouver Foundation

"I began using CharityCAN more than a year ago upon recommendation from a highly-regarded industry colleague. The breadth of local and national data makes it a go-to resource that has proved invaluable in re-energizing the prospect research program at my organization. I also revel in the satisfaction of supporting a homegrown company that provides dedicated client service and asks for feedback throughout the year, not just at renewal time. CharityCAN is worth the investment!"

Joel Heitin
Former Research Analyst
National Health Organization

"I wanted to extend my thanks to you for being a great business partner the last few years. I couldn’t have done my job or produce a lot of the work I was asked to do without CharityCAN."

Cristina Naccarato
Development Coordinator, Prospect Research & Strategy
Art Gallery of Ontario

"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 the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, Ontario, I immediately signed up for a CharityCAN subscription."

John Hermans
Director, Advancement Research
University of Toronto

"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 several databases (including NOZA Canada, Elections Canada, Corporate Directors Canada, Public Salary Disclosure and Canadian Who's Who), and are looking forward to CharityCAN's continued growth towards becoming a 'one stop shop' for Canadian fundraising research."

Jennifer Zhang
Manager, Prospect Management & Research
Sunnybrook Foundation

"CharityCAN is an essential resource that we use at Sunnybrook Foundation every day. We particularly like its data on nonprofit board affiliations. The database is also very helpful in our efforts of mapping out relationships and connections as it provides historical data of nonprofit board members. Highly recommended!"

Deb Comuzzi
Vice-President External Relations
Lakehead University

"The Lakehead University Philanthropy Department values the information and easy-to-use format offered by CharityCAN and will continue to renew our subscription based on this fact alone."

Danielle Taylor
Development Researcher
The Royal Conservatory of Music

"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."

David K. Bell
Associate Director, Development
Anne Lessard
Development Researcher
Sunnybrook Foundation

"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!"

Joanne Souaid
Manager of Research
University of Ottawa

"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."

Helen McLean
Executive Director
Donner Canadian Foundation

"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."

Ana P. D'Avila
Advancement Researcher
Canadian Institute for Advanced Research

"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!"

Christine Thompson
CFRE, Manager, Major Gifts
Eva's Initiatives, 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 campaign."

Janet Speers
Prospect Researcher
RESOLVE Campaign, Calgary

"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."

Lisa Grogan
President and Chief Relationship Officer
Overlap Associates

(formerly) Communications Director
National Media Museum Bradford, England

"CharityCAN is second to none for researchers in the non-profit sector. It cuts down on the time spent sifting through data, and the integrated search function makes it so easy to organize results in the way that best works for you. CharityCAN is every fundraiser’s dream!"

Malcolm Burrows
Head, Philanthropic Advisory Services
Scotia Wealth Management, Toronto

"CharityCAN is a great tool that should be more widely used and understood."
