Donations & Wycliffe: Is it spent wisely?

November 6, 2010

I am so glad you asked! It’s an important question to think about.

Wycliffe’s grade / rating according to the Charity 100 List is included in the guest post below by Jessica Dempster.  

Charity 100 – which Canadian charities deserve your money

by ajourneywithjess

Which Charities deserve your money?  This is a question MoneySense magazine asked earlier this year – in lieu of scandals, frivolous spending and an increased desire of Canadians to be responsible with their finances.

I had a conversation yesterday with a friend about the importance of knowing where and how our donated money goes. I’ve had a number of conversations over the past week where it has been evident that this generation of young adults is responsibly concerned with where our money is going and how it is being used.  Our generation isn’t willing to donate only for the heck of it or for a tax receipt at the end of the year, but  truly want the organizations that we donate to to be responsible –  fiscally, environmentally and socially – with the money we’ve entrusted to them.  Just check out Toronto’s The Funding Network‘s event this month to get this picture!

Since this has come up in my conversations the past week, I wanted to post about how Wycliffe Canada has received an “A” in charity grading, along with actually quite few other charities.  It’s actually quite interesting to read the article, methodology and the number of charities analyzed.  Click here for the article: The Charity 100 List.  I am thrilled to be connected to an organization that is recognized for managing money responsibly. As our VP for public engagement commented earlier this year, this is a “nationally recognized rating for… exemplary integrity in stewardship of our funds — funds so many of your partners have generously and sacrificially given to Wycliffe Canada.” 

 Thank you to all the donors reading this for supporting Wycliffe and know that you’ve invested into a ministry that is wisely spending your contribution!  I hope this is encouragement! Let’s give and give responsibly!
