• The Canadian Foodgrains Bank has been named one of Canada’s Top 10 “impact charities” by Charity Intelligence for the second year in a row. Charity Intelligence is an independent, third-party research organization that examines the impact a Canadian charity makes per dollar spent. Canadian charities provide an average of $2 in social benefits for every dollar donated. Charity Intelligence notes that charities in the Top 10 list, like the Foodgrains Bank, provide an average of $7 in social return for every dollar donated. “This is a reassuring endorsement of the impact of our work together with our members,” says Foodgrains Bank executive director Jim Cornelius. “We’ve always known these efforts are making a difference and this independent validation reaffirms this.”
• Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Canada is proud to announce it has been named by Charity Intelligence as one of 2019’s Top 10 international impact charities. “We’re honoured to receive this recognition from Charity Intelligence and share with the world what we’ve known for nearly 100 years,” says Mark Epp, director of international programs for MCC Canada. “That our focus on working with local partners through the lens of peacebuilding and restoration creates real impact and positive change for those we’re coming alongside.” Working with more than 450 local partners in 53 countries, MCC continues to support relief, development and peace as it enters its 100th year in 2020.
