LiveDifferent Achieves Charity Accreditation with Imagine Canada
We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone for LiveDifferent—we have officially received charity accreditation from Imagine Canada, the country’s most widely recognized nonprofit standards organization.
CEO Charles Roberts says, “We see Imagine Canada’s accreditation as a mark of distinction, affirming our commitment to best practices, transparency, and accountability in the nonprofit sector. It reassures our stakeholders that they can instill their trust in us as an organization dedicated to engaging youth in a lifestyle of compassion and service.”
Imagine Canada’s nonprofit standards provide invaluable best practices that empower organizations like ours to strengthen governance and operations. These standards draw upon the collective wisdom and expertise of the nonprofit sector, covering crucial topics such as board governance, financial accountability and transparency, fundraising, human resources and volunteer involvement.
“I’m very proud of our team’s dedicated efforts; it was great to witness the collaborative work with Imagine Canada throughout the entire accreditation process,” Roberts adds.
By adhering to these standards, any organization can enhance its practices and contribute to the greater good. However, we are proud to share that LiveDifferent has taken our commitment to excellence a step further by successfully completing an independent peer review process to earn this accreditation.
“On the journey toward great governance, organizations pursue accreditation as a public testament to their commitment to the highest standards of transparency and accountability. We offer sincere congratulations to the recently accredited and re-accredited organizations, key players in our Standards community of over 270 organizations nationwide,” said Bruce MacDonald, President and CEO of Imagine Canada.
This accreditation not only reinforces our dedication to accountability and performance but also signifies our unwavering commitment to serving our community with the highest standards of integrity and transparency.
Thank you to our incredible team, partners, volunteers and donors for their unwavering support and belief in our mission.
