About Kupas Hachesed Meoroth:

Established in 2007, Kupas Hachesed Meoroth (KHM) is a charity in Montreal that claims to raise funds for people living in poverty in Israel. Kupas Hachesed Meoroth is not financially transparent. Despite being a registered charity, it has not completed a T3010 filling with the CRA since 2016. The CRA requires all registered charities to file a T3010 each year. Ci could not find a website or further details about the charity’s programs and operations. KHM does not report any contact or compensation information in its T3010 CRA filings. 

Based on T3010 filings from F2010 to F2016, Kupas Hachesed Meoroth’s major charitable activity is sending funds to Israel’s poor. Since KHM’s establishment, the only international grant recipient reported in the T3010 filing is Yitzchok Shlomo Levy in Israel, receiving $21.0m (93% of total grants) in F2016. Ci does not know if this is an individual, a charity or other organization. In Canada, the largest 3 grants allocated in F2016 were to Chasdei Avos Foundation ($124k), Tzivos Hashem ($105k) and Mesivta Lubavitch ($90k).

Donor Advisory: In F2016, KHM granted $20k to Vaad Mishmeres Mitzvos. In January 2017, this organization had its charitable status revoked by the CRA. 

CanadaHelps, the on-line giving platform, shows Kupas Hachesed Meoroth also operating under the name Ellevate Network.

Kupas Hachesed Meoroth is not financially transparent. Its audited financial statements are provided when requested. Charity Intelligence's financial review uses the 2016 unaudited financial statements and T3010 filing. This is the most recent information we have received from the Charities Directorate from our request for information. 

Kupas Hachesed Meoroth was one of Canada’s largest charities in donations, a Major 100, in 2016 with total donations of $20.6m. This is an increase of 58% compared to F2015. Administrative costs are less than 1% of revenues. The charity does not report any fundraising costs in its most recent T3010 CRA filing. 

KHM sent $21.0m in F2016 to the Yitzchok Shlomo Levy in Israel, which accounted for 93% of total revenues. Based on the data collected, KHM has sent $129.4m to Israel since its establishment in 2007. It appears that every year, the only recipient of the funds sent overseas is Yitzchok Shlomo Levy. 

As of F2016, KHM holds funding reserves of $133k which consist only of cash and can cover 2% of annual program and granting costs.
