An overview of charitable giving in 2017 authored by Charities Aid Foundation. This report looks at trends in charitable giving in Canada. It explores how people of different ages and social groups give, the way they give, the rise of online or text giving, the importance of sponsorship and the different causes people support.

While both governments and philanthropic organizations are committed to community investment, the two sectors do no often partner on projects.  This paper is intended to help philanthropic funders understand more about the context for working with government, as well as the opportunities and challenges they may encounter if they intend to work with government at any level. 

This report prepared by the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government examines the magnitude, vitality, and impact of global institutional philanthropy.
