About Mazon Canada:
Founded in 1987, Mazon Canada is a national response by Canada's Jewish community to address hunger by fundraising and supporting food banks across Canada. Mazon Canada seeks to raise awareness of poverty and hunger in Canada, and reports that 851,014 Canadians received help from a food bank in March 2011. It calls on the Jewish community's mitzvah tzedakah (obligation of charity) to address this social injustice. It encourages its supporters to symbolically invite a hungry stranger to their table by asking for a donation of 3% of food costs of any simcha or milestone event.
Mazon Canada grants these funds on a non-denominational basis to food banks across Canada. Mazon Canada receives grant requests from food banks, school programs, and in from the cold programs and annually makes grants in the spring. Mazon Canada focuses grants on smaller food banks that lack resources. Since 1986, MAZON has allocated almost $8 million to hunger programs across Canada, and in 2017 granted over $300,000 to over 125 organizations.
Mazon Canada is a micro-cap charity with $513k in F2015 donations. From cost allocations reported on Mazon Canada's T3010 filings, administrative costs are 34% of revenues and fundraising costs are 8% of donations. For every dollar donated, 58 cents go towards the charity’s programs, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. Mazon Canada has $1.3m in funding reserves, resulting a program cost coverage ratio of 506%. This means that the charity can cover 5 years of its annual program costs using its existing reserves.
This charity profile is an update currently under review by Mazon Canada. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
