How do you choose which charity to support?

November 1, 2021

Having the assurance that what one donates will be making a difference is what drives many to donate to charity. But how would you know which charity organization to choose? Charity Intelligence provides Canadian donors with information that helps them make informed and intelligent giving decisions to have the greatest impact.   

Charity Intelligence analyzes charities to find exceptional charities for donors. They help donors determine a giving portfolio that best reflects their interests and the change they hope to achieve. They dig deep to arrive at top ranking charities that are best in their field and there is no application process. Each year, Charity Intelligence provides a Top 100 report based on their findings.

Discovery House is pleased to be rated as the top women’s charity in the country in 2021 by Charity Intelligence. We received a 5-star rating and A grade in reporting.  

Discovery House provides shelter and support to women and their children who leave abusive relationships, thanks to generous donors and funders. We provide a range of care for women and their children fleeing domestic violence from transitional housing and critical trauma-informed services to enable women and children recover from their trauma, rebuild their lives and be equipped to live independently, free from domestic violence.  This work prevents the cycle of domestic violence from repeating with the next generation.

You can feel confident knowing that the gifts you give to Discovery House do a great deal of good.
