We are pleased to announce that we have recently updated our CharityData.ca website to include nearly all T3010 2017 data and some of the 2018 data.
Blumbergs has created the largest Canadian registered charity information portal at CharityData.ca with up to 14 years information on every Canadian registered charity.
CharityData.ca provides a easy to use interface that is far easier to use than the CRA's Charities Listing to analyse T3010 Registered Charity Information Return data on a particular charity. It also allows the user to sort charities under "Advanced Charity Search" by over 30 criteria.
The Director Search function of CharityData.ca also allows users to search over 600,000 directors by their first and last names and it is the only publicly available and up-to-date tool for searching them.
The portal is free and the its aim is to increase transparency in the Canadian charity sector.
You can use CharityData.ca to search or sort by Name of Charity, BN, Program, Charity Type, Revenue, Province and City. You can also sort by over 25 different parametres.
For the most up-to-date information on a particular charity, including whether a charity is still registered you should use the CRA Charities Listing at https://apps.cra-arc.gc.ca/ebci/haip/srch/advancedsearch-eng.action. However, for analyzing the past data of charities CharityData.ca is much easier to use.
CharityData.ca is part of the Sean Blumberg Transparency Project which is in memory of my youngest brother Sean Blumberg. Sean was a sweet, kind person, a great brother who helped me on a number of occasions with many tasks including the time consuming and arduous task of reviewing T3010 databases and making them into something useful. As part of the Sean Blumberg Transparency Project, Blumbergs has been releasing information on the Canadian charity sector to provide a better understanding of the size, scope, complexity and challenges of the sector.
