  • 1. Belonging and LeadershipCharitable Donors as a Proportion of Tax Filers
  • 2. Significance• Charitable giving is an essential part of civil society because it allows Canadians to support institutions and causes that they believe in, which ultimately enhance the well-being of Canada as a whole.
