A panel of unbiased experts recruited from across North America review eligible funding proposals to ensure that donor dollars will have maximum impact. Initiatives that are well-planned, highly relevant and have the potential to make a meaningful difference are recommended for funding.
 

Our Cost of Fundraising

Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is dedicated to finding the optimal balance between dollars invested in grants and other cause-related work, and dollars spent on fundraising and other necessary expenditures. Our goal is to maximize our cause-related spending.
 
The Foundation's cost of fundraising is 37.2%. Our fundraising costs are on par with most other charities of the similar size, scope and fundraising focus.
 

What is a T3010?

It is the Registered Charity Information Return set out by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).Federally registered charities are regulated by the CRA because they are exempt from income tax and are able to provide tax receipts to donors so that they may obtain tax relief. To demonstrate compliance with federal tax laws, registered charities must file a Registered Charity Information Return (T3010) with the CRA each year. The T3010 and the Audited Financial Statement serve two different purposes so figures may differ between statements. The Foundation follows CRA procedures to complete the T3010.
