    Largest Gifts from Canadian Charities
    to other Qualified Donees in 2012

    By Mark Blumberg (January 3, 2014)

    Canadian charities, depending on their objects can carry out charitable activities in three different ways. Some do all three.
    1) A registered charity can conduct charitable activities using staff and volunteers.
    2) A registered charity can work with an intermediary who is not a qualified donee as long as it has “direction and control” over
    its funds as set out in CRA’s two Guidances on the subject (at http://bit.ly/ybUGAB)
    3) A registered charity can make a gift to a qualified donee. For a list of qualified donees see: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrtsgvng/qlfd-dns/qd-lstngs/menu-eng.html
