Financial & Legal Documents
Public status means that no public charity is controlled by
one, or a few, wealthy donors. It requires all charities that
seek public status to "pass a public support test." The requirement
is met by 33 1/3 percent support test (where the charity receives
at least one-third of its "financial support" from
a combination of the "general public" and public charities
and government) or, alternatively, a "facts and circumstances"
10 percent test (i.e. it receives at least 10% from these sources
and meets various other tests, for example, it has a broadly
representative board of directors, and actively looks for money).
The percentages are calculated by using total support as the
denominator and public support as the numerator.
