Making a List, Checking it Twice

December 14th, 2011 Comments off

I love Christmas music. My absolute favorites are Thistlehair the Christmas Bear by Alabama and anything by Boney M (Although our recent rendition of “The Twelve Days of PLE Christmas” is right up there). I’ve been listening to Christmas music since the end of November so the lyrics have had time to sink in. I was thinking about one particular part in Santa Claus is Coming to Town:

He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

Even though Santa can fly around the whole world in a sleigh pulled by reindeer, he still has to make a list. Santa knows he is busy and needs to keep track of such important details like who’s been naughty and who’s been nice.

Maybe you’re not as busy as Santa this holiday season, but most people who work or volunteer for registered charities have demanding schedules. That’s why it’s so important to be organized.

Charity Central has the perfect resource for this – a filing checklist for registered charities. There are versions for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. The checklists set out some of the important filings that registered charities must make to their provincial government and to the Canada Revenue Agency. They outline who, what, when, why and links to more information.

New Resource: Filing Checklists for Registered Charities

August 17th, 2011 Comments off

I love lists.

I make them for everything; I write them in my notebook, on little sheets of paper, in my Google calendar, and I even have an app for lists!

I am one of those people that will add something to my list, even if it’s already completed, just to get the satisfaction of crossing it off.

If I don’t write something on a list, I forget to do it!

That’s why Charity Central has created new required filing checklists for registered charities under the Road to Accountability project. The checklists set out the common and important filings that registered charities must make.

In an easy to understand format, the checklist outlines who, what, when, why, and where to find more information.

Charity Central has created checklists for:

–          Alberta,

–          British Columbia,

–          Manitoba, and

–          Saskatchewan.

Some of the filings are dependent on how a charity is incorporated. If you have specific questions or concerns, you should contact your legal counsel, financial advisors, provincial government or the Canada Revenue Agency.

If you are also a lover of lists, check out Charity Central’s Fundraising Activities Checklist, Privacy Policy Checklist, and the Administrative Calendar.
