It gives me great pleasure to let you know that I have joined The Veritas Foundation as its Executive Director. I look forward to working with the team at Veritas to launch its new Donor Advised Fund, and to develop the organization’s research and analysis into Canada’s charitable sector.
The Veritas Foundation, a Canadian registered charity, is committed to making sustainable improvements to the Charitable sector through its innovative research, management and granting programs. In addition to offering grants and awards, the foundation provides information, independent advice, thought leadership, and comprehensive reviews of Canadian registered charities, all within an innovative VScore© program framework. The Veritas Foundation is part of the Veritas Group of companies, which includes Veritas Investment Research Corp, Canada’s most recognized independent equity research firm.
If you would like to begin your Legacy of Giving by creating your own charitable account, you can do so in just a few minutes and four easy steps: open an account; give a name to your account (eg. the Jane Doe Giving Fund, or the Smith Family Charity); deposit funds into your account while receiving an instant charitable receipt; then choosing what charities and areas of interest you want to support now and in the future. After that, there is so much more you can do: make tax-receipted deposits at any time; have your friends and family donate to your account at any time and receive a tax receipt; hold events or personal campaigns to build your account over time; and much more. It really is that simple.
