About Breakfast Club of Canada:
Founded in 1994, Breakfast Club of Canada (Club des petits déjeuners) aims to “nurture potential and grow healthy students, giving an equal chance of success to all kids, one breakfast at a time.” In 2013, Breakfast Club of Québec merged its activities with Breakfast Clubs of Canada to form Breakfast Club of Canada. The charity delivers food items to schools, provides funding for food, and provides training and kitchen equipment. School staff and volunteers receive ongoing support from regional coordinators. The charity also runs the Breakfast Makes Me Shine program, with activities aimed to develop, inspire and engage children.
In F2015, Breakfast Club of Canada served 167,271 students, in 1,455 schools across Canada, 27,084,226 breakfasts. Its largest region is Ontario, with 90,558 students across 538 schools receiving 14,942,070 breakfasts. The charity also targeted First Nation Métis and Inuit communities. In F2015, it provided 25,113 First Nation students, in 195 schools across Canada, with 3,721,185 breakfasts.
Breakfast Club of Canada is a large charity, with donations of $10.2m in F2015. The reported administrative costs on the charity’s T3010 filing were 2% of revenues. However, these costs cannot be reconciled with its audited financial statements, and are significantly lower than F2014 despite higher program costs in F2015. Its fundraising costs are 24% of donations and have increased from 16% in F2013. For every $1 donated to the charity, 74 cents is put towards its programs. The charity’s funding reserves are $1.9m, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 14%. This ratio has fallen from 54% in F2013 due to the charity’s sale of its temporary investments to fund its $2.5m deficit in F2015.
In F2015, with total expenses of $16.4m and 167,271 Breakfast Club of Canada participants, the average cost per beneficiary is $98.
