Giving to Charities the Smart Way (Click)

I heard on CBC News Radio today about a Canadian non-profit organization that collects data on charity organizations: how much money they get from donations and how effectively the money is used.  They look at many different aspects of managing resources, and they have a report for the most effective charities in Canada in 2010.  This report can be downloaded in PDF format from their website.

Over the past few years, I've been looking for a Canadian organization that does this sort of research before I make donations to charities.  I had never come across CIC before, and I'm glad I have now.
