  • Need help with your earned income activities? The Canada Business Network might have what you’re looking for. | Imagine Canada
    information is targeted to for profit entities and fails to consider the unique operating context facing charities In response to this challenge the Canada Business Network a collaborative program among governments regional development agencies and nonprofits that promotes entrepreneurship and innovation recently launched a dedicated page on its website highlighting both government and government vetted resources that support social enterprises and charities earned income activities The new page contains a wealth of information that is tailored to charities and nonprofits including information on business plan development regulations and taxation and funding and financing The Canada Business Network s recognition that charities can benefit from the same support as other types of businesses is a welcome gesture It is also a great first step by government to improve access to federal business development resources and programs to charities and social enterprises more broadly something that Imagine Canada has been advocating for over the last several years The new Canada Business Network webpage along with Imagine Canada s Earned Income Framework and research report contributes to a growing body of practical information available to charities and nonprofits on the topic of earned income and social enterprise Imagine Canada along with representatives from Enterprising Nonprofits and the Social Enterprise Council of Canada helped to ensure that the quality and relevance of the content would be useful to the sector However work to identify relevant resources is still ongoing and we would encourage you to provide your own feedback by using the mechanism at the bottom of the Canada Business Network page About the Author Brittany Fritsch is the Manager of Public Policy and Community Engagement in Imagine Canada s Ottawa office She is a co founding board member of JustChange a microgranting organization whose mission it is to accelerate social and environmental innovation

  • What I’ve Learned, and the Road Ahead | Imagine Canada
    because they are interested in and dedicated to what they are doing and want to make a difference in the world More fundamentally I ve learned that charities and nonprofits along with government exist for somewhat similar reasons I believe that the private sector and the marketplace do not provide Canadians with all the things we value defense for example in the case of government and the pursuit of objectives like social justice in the case of both sectors This leaves public servants and people working in the charitable sector struggling with many of the same issues Given that we are pursuing values that are fundamentally important to the Canada we want to live in how do we demonstrate to a results oriented society that we are actually achieving something of value as opposed to simply setting desirable goals The road ahead This leads to another big practical difference between the sector and government the government has a LOT more resources than the sector to devote to meeting these challenges The charitable sector has to make do with what it has and this means the Chief Economist has to set priorities in a rigorous and tough minded way selecting the areas that will benefit most from an economic approach Imagine Canada s board of directors and its advisory committee members from across the sector have decided to focus on three priorities First continuing work to support proposals to the federal government for the Stretch Tax Credit for Charitable Giving in the 2015 budget This reflects the urgent need of charities for more resources to do an increasingly difficult job Second working with the sector to flesh out its contribution to the Canadian economy to jobs and growth in this global knowledge economy Third further developing the strategic thinking underpinning the

    way you can immediately see the research and record keeping already completed by your colleagues More importantly having information in a centralized location prevents the slip up many organizations are guilty of applying to a funder without knowing you have done so in the past or worse applying to a funder for one project unaware that your organization is currently applying to that same funder for something else 2 A pipeline reduces the impact of fundraiser turnover At one point or another your organization will have to deal with fundraiser turnover As we discussed in a previous blog post researchers have found that fundraisers stay at their positions on average less than two years The indirect and direct costs associated with turnover can be extremely costly to your organization and a well stocked pipeline helps mitigate these expenses Instead of having to start fresh a pipeline allows new fundraisers to begin where their predecessors left off 3 It helps determine your prospect ratio One of your biggest challenges as a fundraiser is determining whether or not you have enough funding prospects to meet your goal It s a safe assumption that not every funder will say yes to your grant request Successful fundraisers have a prospect ratio of at least 3 1 meaning that they aim to apply to at least three funders for each grant they hope to receive By tracking your prospects in a pipeline you can easily calculate if you have enough funders in solicitation to meet your goal given your prospect ratio 4 It ensures successful fundraising next year as well as this one Let s say you need 100 000 for a project in 2014 If you identify five great funding prospects odds are that you can t immediately submit applications to them and call
