Charity Search

Many donors have a very specific idea of which charity or charities they’d like to help. But, if you’re new to philanthropy or if there is an area of need that interests you but in which you have little connection, there may be a need to get some outside direction.

First, you can ask Provident and we may very well be able to give you some suggestions based on our charitable fund portfolios and our own experience in working in the charitable sector.  Our board has almost 100 years of collective experience in the charitable sector.

If, however, you need additional direction, we recommend that you may wish to check out Place2Give, a donor-centered charity search engine. It provides donors with the tools they need to search, evaluate and give to the charities that align with their passions.

Place2Give draws several public data sets, including Canada Revenue Agency, Charity Intelligence, The Donner Award, The Fraser Institute and the charities themselves to provide you, the donor, with the information to make an informed charitable decision.
