Better Together: A Guide for Charity/Non-Charity Partnerships

K. Main
Description / Summary

In Canada, charitable organizations provide services that benefit the public and improve quality of life through activities related to education, religion, social issues, arts, and sports (Canada Revenue Agency, 2006). The defining characteristics of a charity are that its purpose is beneficial to the community and it is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). This handbook seeks to explain relevant guidelines, provide insights from community experience and promote examples of good practice. It strives to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the practice in compliance with CRA regulations so that charity and non-charity partnerships can be used to maximize community benefit.
