Charity Intelligence Canada's Top 10 Impact Charities of 2018 & 2017

Charity Intelligence Canada has recognized JUMP Math as one of Canada’s Top 10 Impact Charities for the second year in a row. This is a measurement of JUMP Math’s impact through Social Return on Investment (SROI). Charity Intelligence’s star ratings are based on a holistic approach, assessing four objective aspects: donor reporting, financial accountability, funding need, and cents to the cause (overhead fundraising and admin costs).

"Charity Intelligence has picked the most effective Canadian charities that combat issues such as hunger, homelessness, health, and improving education. Giving for impact means looking beyond administrative and fundraising costs to see what difference a charity is making in the lives of its clients. For your dollar, evidence shows that these charities are creating the most positive change we have seen."
