As Canadians enter an important time of the year for charitable gift giving, MoneySense magazine has named the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) as the top environmental charity in the country. The not-for-profit, private land conservation organization welcomes the just released MoneySense 2019 Charity 100 rankings.
NCC was ranked best in class, earning an overall grade of A+, the highest of 10 conservation and environmental charities in this category. MoneySense’s ranking, the only one of its kind in Canada, evaluates charities based on their overall efficiency, fundraising efficiency and social transparency.
These results speak to NCC’s reliability and transparency.

MoneySense began grading Canada’s biggest 100 charities nine years ago, providing valuable guidance to Canadians as they consider where best to invest their philanthropic gifts.

“We work hard to earn the trust of our donors,” says John Lounds, president and CEO of the Nature Conservancy of Canada. “The MoneySense Charity 100 report reinforces that people can feel good about making NCC their charity of choice. They want to have confidence in the charities they support and see their contributions be used for their intended purpose. We are grateful for the generosity of people, businesses, foundations and government partners.”
This month, NCC will mark 56 years of conservation. In that time, it has protected habitats for over 200 different species that are at risk of being lost from our country. Some of NCC’s properties help protect species such as monarch and barn swallow. Other NCC properties are the last places in Canada for species like western prairie white-fringed orchid, eastern loggerhead shrike and gray fox. Our mission was urgent in 1962, and it is urgent today.
