The Canada Revenue Agency determines the types of organizations – known as "qualified donees" – that can receive funding from a federally-registered charity.

To be eligible, a qualified donee must be one of the following:
- a registered charity,
- a municipality in Canada,
- a First Nation recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency as a public body performing a function of government (qualified donee),
- an educational institution, or
- the government of Canada or British Columbia.

The complete information is available on the Canada Revenue Agency's website.
