Thoughts on A Sector in the Fog

The recent release of new data from Statistics Canada on giving and volunteering brings to mind some questions that go beyond charity and giving. Why is it that most of what we “know” about our sector is focused on data about philanthropy? Is the so-called charitable sector only about charity and volunteers? What do we really know about who we are in this sector with many names – charitable, non-profit, voluntary, community, social, civil society? How can we even be sure we are talking about the same thing? Are we a sector in the fog? (Philanthropic Foundations Canada)
