About Windfall Clothing:

Incorporated in 1992 by the founders of Second Harvest, Canada's second largest foodbank, Toronto Windfall Clothing Support Services (Windfall) provides new donated clothing and other basic-needs items to 64,000 people in the Greater Toronto Area who are struggling with poverty, including over 21,000 children. The items are distributed through over 60 social service agencies working with a broad cross-section of people, such as abused women and children, families living in poverty, immigrants and refugees, and people with physical or mental disabilities.  For every dollar donated, Windfall claims that it distributes $43 worth of items to people in need.

Windfall also offers work training, basic back-to-work skills, and job placement services, along with clothing, to help clients enter or re-enter the job market. Windfall has recently received $500k annual core program funding from the Ontario provincial government.

Financial Review:

Windfall's  revenues of $1.3m do not include the substantial value of donated clothing received.  In F2014, administrative costs were flat at 5% of revenues, while fundraising costs decreased to 12% of donations.  Windfall has enough funding reserves to cover 118% of annual program costs.

This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by Windfall. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
