Imagine Canada – Trust & Impact

Ayer, S., & Anderson, P. (2022). Trust & Impact: Funders' Perspectives on Unrestricted Funding in Canada. Imagine Canada.

From the report:

“The lack of unrestricted funding has been lamented by nonprofit leaders for more than a decade. But the pendulum has perhaps started to swing again, with the first signs of increases to unrestricted funding in decades.
In the wake of these trends, this report examines the state of unrestricted funding in Canada through interviews with almost two dozen Canadian funders. Many of these funders, especially those participating in national networks, increased their levels of unrestricted funding over the past two years. We asked them about what new practices they have adopted, about what they have learned, and whether they will be changing the way they operate indefinitely.”
