Executive Pastor Amitabh Singh shares how CCCC can support the administration function in ministries and equip ministry teams with trusted resources and guidance.
Our 3300+ members are doing incredible work in local communities and around the world! As they faithfully serve in their ministry, we are grateful to walk alongside them as a guide in this complex world. Here are some of their stories about how they work with CCCC.
Once again, I'd like to thank the CCCC for the assistance that was provided. I recently emailed a financial question and received a reply within hours. This was a huge help and I was able to furnish our accountant with information which will assist them to understand how charitable organizations are run. You offer many other services, I know, but I've been helped countless times by you to do a better job.
As a first-time executive director, who started in January 2020, I cannot say enough how CCCC has been a lifeline professionally and ministry wise. I have called the CCCC office so many times to ask for help. I have been amazed each time by the thoroughness and wealth of knowledge that the team has. Thank you for the incredible work you do to support ministries such as Mully Children's Family Canada (MCF)!
The CCCC’s legal and technical advice is always beneficial for us; it's a service we could never afford on our own. They’re like our CFO in a box. It’s critical for Haven to have the oversight we need to be appropriately governed. The articles and advice from CCCC bring to light areas we can improve, and the charity handbook is invaluable.
I appreciate that CCCC is very accessible as a touchstone to confirm my understanding of the law. They have high credibility and I know I can trust their opinion.
I appreciate the ability to just call and get to the right person, I never feel rushed by them, and the follow up always exceeds what they say they would do.
“The ‘future’ comes quicker than we expect, but it need not take us off guard. With future planning support from a Christian perspective, and sound market counsel our employees can make decisions and choices in which they can have confidence. The benefit that comes with working with an organization such as CCCC is that they have done the research and work to ensure that the pension plans are competitive, have integrity and help build a secure financial future.”
We value that we don’t have to do the work of research when CRA makes certain decisions – we can rely on the guidance from CCCC. As certain needs arise, we know that we have a friend and connection in areas like policy development, charity law, and trends of what’s happening in the Christian charity sector. CCCC is an incredibly valuable resource.
I am learning so much about leadership and governance by serving with the CCCC Board. The example of integrity is a model for me personally and Youth for Christ Canada where I serve as National Director.
A short note to let you know how much we, at International Needs Canada, appreciate and value our partnership with CCCC. We especially love having the opportunity of giving our employees access to the CCCC pension plan. Being part of a larger group of organizations is especially beneficial to our employees. They are able to participate in a plan that provides lower administrative fees, which will benefit them on retirement. The employees can easily access their plan online and make their own decisions regarding the investments that work best for them. We are happy to be able to provide the CCCC pension plan to our employees knowing that we are partnering with a trusted organization.
It’s been a pleasure to work with the CCCC. They have helped us every step of the way. They are smart and ready to serve. We now have a series of tools that we are using to better manage and value our staff. I recommend them highly.
