Examination of Foundations and Disbursement Quota in Canada

The purpose of this project is to provide a study of charitable spending by members of Philanthropic Foundations Canada, document the historical impacts brought about by changes to Canada’s disbursement quota (DQ) policy, and recommend changes to the T3010 form. The intern will lead knowledge generation in the form of member engagement, issue briefs, and attending conferences. Throughout this process, the intern will encourage Canadian charitable foundations to embrace DQ-related policy positions that promote sustainability and the success of the charitable sector as well as supporting the application of best-practices. This research will provide a foundation for further study.
