About Canadian National Christian Foundation:

Canadian National Christian Foundation is a 0-star charity. It has an F in results reporting, meaning it publicly reports very little on its programs. The charity has $46.0m in funding reserves that can cover over 2 years of program costs. Before you give, read Charity Intelligence's report. 

Founded in 2003, Canadian National Christian Foundation (CNCF) operates the CNCF Giving Fund, a donor-advised fund that supports Christian charities. In this way, CNCF offers families and ministry organizations an alternative to setting up their own private foundation, at reduced cost and effort. The charity’s mission is to “connect [donors'] money with God’s work” and strives “to work with [donors] to bring meaning to their money while they live and to ensure the legacy they leave reflects the life they lived.” 

Canadian National Christian Foundation offers various giving options: outright gifts of one-time donations; bequests though a will; RRSP/RRIF with CNCF as a beneficiary; Life Insurance with CNCF as an owner and/or beneficiary; charitable remainder trust; and charitable gift annuity.  

In F2020, CNCF spent $21.8m in grants to support Christian charities.

Charity Intelligence did not find any reported outcomes on the charity’s website. This may not be a complete representation of Canadian National Christian Foundation’s results.  

My anchor


Canadian National Christian Foundation received $29.5m in donations in F2020. It also received $2.0m in investment income (6% of total revenues). Administrative costs are less than 1% of donations (excluding investment income), and the charity reports no fundraising costs. For every dollar donated, over 99 cents go to CNCF’s programs. This is outside of Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. CNCF’s overhead costs have been outside Ci’s reasonable range since F2015.  

CNCF has funding reserves of $46.0m, which can cover annual grants and program costs for 2.1 years.

CNCF has reported no full-time staff and one part-time employee in F2020.
