Four Star Charities

Charity Intelligence has rated over 750 charities on a scale of 0 to 4 stars.

Below is a list of the 4-star charities that we have found to date, based on our metrics. To see how the star ratings are calculated, please see our methodology page.

If you would like to see all of the ratings that we have completed, including all 3,2,1 and 0-star charities, please register for a subscription with Charity Intelligence and for an annual fee of $20, you can view and compare all ratings.

If you would like to see a charity that is not yet rated, please send us the name of the charity and those charities receiving the most donor votes will be rated. Please note, we receive over 3,000 requests each year and can only do i) the most requested charities and ii) charities that provide us with information. If we need to file a request for information with the CRA, this can take more than 18 months.
