AWARDS & RECOGNITION
EPIC is delighted and honoured to be recognized by Charity Intelligence in its 2020-2023 Top Charities Lists, It was the first Canadian charity east of Toronto to be included.
Since 2006, Charity Intelligence of Canada uses third-party research to find exceptional charities so that "donors have the tools they need to give better and get higher returns on their donations--donations based on evidence. This means that more...goes toward making a difference. Charity Intelligence's analysis goes beyond plain subjectivity or narrow financial analysis to dig deeper to arrive at those charities proven to be the best in their field: not just 'do gooders' but 'good doers', too."
The Donner Foundation, beginning in 1998 and ending in 2014, ran Canada's largest non-profit recognition program. It was established "to recognize and encourage best practices in non-profit management and to increase public confidence and support for Canada's non-profit sector." These awards were granted for Excellence in the Delivery of Social Services.
In the final 9 years, EPIC applied and, each year, was evaluated rigorously through a 2-stage Fraser Institute protocol. In that period, EPIC's Youth Peer Program received more cash award recognition from the Donner Foundation than any of the other 2,000 competing Canadian charitable programs. EPIC received the Donner Foundation Award 6 times as the highest achieving non-profit in the Services for Children category. In both 2010 and 2013, EPIC received the highest Donner Foundation Award across all social service categories, and in 2012 received the Canada-wide Peter Drucker Award for the most consistent record of excellence and innovation in the management and delivery of non-profit program services.
