The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has received four stars – the highest rating possible – in Charity Intelligence Canada’s annual list of top charities. This is the fifth year in a row the BC SPCA has been cited in the Charity Intelligence Canada report, which assesses hundreds of non-profit organizations across the country.
The BC SPCA earned an “A” rating for 2019 in the survey, which analyses a non-profit organization’s achievements in the areas of accountability to donors, cost efficiency of programming and financial transparency. The purpose of the report is to help donors make informed choices about the charities they support and to make their contributions with confidence, knowing their donations will be well stewarded.
Craig Daniell, chief executive officer for the BC SPCA, says the society’s board of directors, staff and volunteers are committed to upholding the highest standards in its policies and programs. “The BC SPCA is able to carry out its work on behalf of abused, injured and homeless animals through the generosity of individuals, businesses, foundations and others in the community who support us. It is extremely important to us to be able to demonstrate that these donations are being stewarded as effectively as possible.”
