Donors, funders and boards are all looking for more transparency and good governance. Now, Ontario charities can give them that and more by entering their Annual Report in the Voluntary Sector Reporting Awards (VSRA). The VSRAs, created by the CA-Queen's Centre for Governance in partnership with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario and sponsored by PwC, annually recognize the Ontario’s best non-profit Annual Reports.
- National or international NPO headquartered in Ontario: World Vision Canada
- Total revenues over $10 million (tie): Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario & United Way Toronto
- Total revenues over $1 million but below $10 million: Kingston Literacy & Skills
- Total Revenues of under $1 million: Sarnia Lambton “Rebound” - A Program for Youth
The winners in each category will receive $5,000. Charities that are organizations whose principal activities are run by or for municipalities, universities, hospitals or school boards are not eligible.
Now, charities everywhere can learn how to turn their Annual Report into a powerful engagement tool for free. The Voluntary Sector Reporting Awards have published a new guide to annual reporting called Best Practices in Charity Annual Reporting. The report is free at the VSRA website -- http://www.annualreportaward.ca/.
