The Canadian Council of Christian Charities has launched a brand new website dedicated to helping Christian ministries acquire new donors. It is located at www.giveconfidently.ca.

Finding good charities to give to

David Johnson, Director of Certification at CCCC, says “Certified charities work hard to obtain (and keep) the Seal of Accountability by complying with high standards. The new website is a wonderful way to showcase charities that have demonstrated a commitment to integrity.” We wanted to find a way to celebrate and promote these worthy charities and help them secure additional support. The new website helps in  several ways:

  1. Donors can find out different ways of giving (including RRIFs and RRSPs, bequests and securities)
  2. Donors can learn how to evaluate a charity and find out why giving to a CCCC-Certified charity can help them give confidently and generously
  3. CCCC Certified members can create profiles, including information about the ministry and links to video, annual reports, volunteer opportunities, and contact info. Donors can also ask a question which will go directly to the charity.
  4. Donors can find charities to support in several ways:
    1. They can search by charity name
    2. They can search by country (or province in Canada)
    3. They can search by ministry focus, such as evangelism
    4. They can combine these searches

Charity Standards

Here are the nine standards that Certified members adhere to in order to be worthy of receiving the Seal of Accountability from CCCC:

  1. They are a Christian ministry.
  2. They have an independent, active governing board.
  3. They have audited financial statements.
  4. They publicly disclose their financial statements.
  5. They have a board committee that provides oversight to the financial audit.
  6. They pursue the highest standards of integrity.
  7. They commit to an ethical fundraising policy.
  8. They evaluate their programs for effectiveness and efficiency.
  9. They follow a code of accountability.

If you’d like your Christian ministry to be Certified, here’s where you can find more information.

      Hi James,

      Somehow I missed your comment, so sorry for the delay in responding. CCCC is not a granting organization. We do not financially support other ministries. We do provide a Seal of Accountability to help other ministries raise money, and that is what the giveconfidently.ca website is about – highlighting those Certified ministries.

      Blessings on you and your church.

      No, I’m sorry, we don’t. We are not a mission agency, but a ministry that helps other ministries. Your best opportunity I believe is to be sent by a church or ministry in India that wants to work in Canada.

    God has given me a burden and a vision to start a Praise and Worship Center in Nepal. I have been praying for more than nine years and still praying for it. It’s my first time ever written to someone for support. I am praying and searching a donor who can support this center. This center mainly focuses to teach on the importance of Biblical Praise and Worship and the role of Music in the Church. Is there any ministries or donors who can support?
    Hope to hear soon. With kind regards

      Hi Deepak. Your best option is to Google “Canadian church planting ministry” and look through the results. The first four pages or so (I haven’t looked further than that) show a number of ministries here in Canada that plant churches in Canada and overseas. You can check with them to see their interest in supporting a missionary in Nepal. Blessings, John

    REV John,
    It is wonderful contribution for ministries and churches in Canada. Kindly pray the body of Christ in India , Nepal and Bhutan could initiate something like this within ourself and extend help to each other interns transparency, integrity, management and accountability. Many individual and donors are afraid to donate their genuine help due to mistrust lacking all above things. Please please pray that our people learn to trust God, walk in His Principle where outcome will be prosperity in spirit, soul and body.
    We also need mentors of fatherly heart who will correct the people and lead in godly ways. May God bless you abundantly.
