For the fifth year running, Canadian Foodgrains Bank has been named to Charity Intelligence’s 2022 list of Canada’s Top 10 Impact Charities. The annual list by Charity Intelligence examines impact per dollar donated to an organization.
Foodgrains Bank executive director Andy Harrington says being acknowledged five years in a row is an important recognition.
“We’re humbled and appreciative at being included on this list,” he says. “As we enter our 40th year of operation, this award recognizes how we continue to work with integrity to help end world hunger.”
Foodgrains Bank has a twofold approach in its work: delivering emergency food assistance for people in times of crises and disasters, as well as long-term support for families including agricultural training and improved nutrition.
“As the world is facing an exploding hunger crisis, we hope this acknowledgement encourages more Canadians to join us in providing access to food. I believe that despite our differences we can all agree this is something every human being should have,” adds Harrington.
“We know that being designated as a Top 10 Impact Charity adds a level of trust for our supporters when they choose to donate towards the work of ending world hunger.”
Charity Intelligence is a third-party independent organization that examines different Canadian charities annually and assigns ratings based on donor reporting, financial transparency, funding need, cents to the cause, and demonstrated impact. The annual Top 10 Impact Charity list is a subset of a larger Top 100 Rated Charities list. It measures return on investment and impact on ground, examining only one thing: for every dollar donated, what is the impact?
