Boost your fundraising with our prospect research software
We are dedicated to helping Canadian charitable organizations use data to become more efficient.
Finding major gifts is an important and time-consuming task. Researching the capacity, propensity and affinity of an individual, company or foundation for giving can take days. When the research is done, there’s also the question of how to connect with your new donor.
CharityCAN indexes several datasets including donation histories, biographies and wealth indicators, enabling you to find all the data you need with a single search. We use machine learning methodologies to group these separate data points into donor profiles and build a relationship graph to reveal connections between prospective donors and your organization.

About the company
Anderson founded CharityCAN in 2008, after realizing that at the time Canadians had no resource to research Canadian charities online. A decade of development and several prospect research datasets later, he stepped back from day-to-day involvement with the business early 2018. His community engagement includes the advancement of Lakehead University’s Orillia campus, the Huronia Cultural Campus initiative, and Orillia’s food bank, The Sharing Place.
Matthew took the reins of the family business as CEO in early 2018 after working as head of software since 2015. He has over a decade of experience in Kitchener-Waterloo’s bustling technology scene at companies both large and small, and is passionate about software that can make your life easier, playing music and sports, and spending time with his family.
