The BC SPCA is one of only 12 Canadian charities to earn an A+, the highest overall rating, in MoneySense magazine’s 2015 survey that rates 100 Canadian charities for overall efficiency, transparency and donor stewardship.
The magazine created Canada’s first charity rating system to determine which charities score highest in categories such as overall charity efficiency, governance, fundraising efficiency and reserves. The BC SPCA received an A rating in fundraising efficiency, with 76.1 per cent of all donations going towards its programs and services and a cost of only $15.56 to raise $100. The society also received A+ or A ratings in every other category.
“We are honoured to be among the handful of Canadian charities to earn this top rating,” said Craig Daniell, CEO of the BC SPCA. “Everyone in our organization – from our volunteers to our shelter and program staff to our volunteer Board of Directors – puts their heart and soul into our services for B.C.’s most vulnerable animals. As an organization that is reliant on community support to fund all of our programs and services, we take the stewardship of our donor contributions very seriously and it is extremely rewarding to see these efforts recognized in the MoneySense survey.”
The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a not-for-profit organization reliant on public donations. Our mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in B.C.
