About Calgary Health Trust:

Established in 1996, the Calgary Health Trust (CHT) is the fundraising arm of Alberta Health Services in Calgary.

The Calgary Health Trust  raises funds to enhance patient care, acquire new equipment, and improve programs and services at health care organizations in and around Calgary. These include the Foothills Medical Centre, the Peter Lougheed Centre, Rockyview General Hospital, South Health Campus, Women's Health, Carewest continuing care centres, and the University of Calgary's Faculty of Medicine.

In F2015, the Calgary Health Trust's grant costs were  $23.7m: $9.5m to the Alberta Health Services, $15.1m to the University of Calgary, $726k to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, and $66k to other organizations.  $1.7m was returned to  the Calgary Health  Trust from previously funded programs not completed or completed at less than quoted prices, or programs no longer exist but the recipient is holding residual dollars. 

Financial Review:

In F2015, the Calgary Health Trust administrative costs were 2% of revenues, down from 3% in F2014.  Fundraising costs were 61% of donations in F2015, up significantly from 36% in F2014.  The Calgary Health Trust  changed the reporting of its lotteries in F2015, combining it with special events.  As no breakdown was provided for F2015, Ci has included all costs and revenues associated with lotteries in the F2015 fundraising ratio.  

The Calgary Health Trust has funding reserves of $102m, including donor-endowed funds of $26m.  The funding reserve including donor-endowed funds can cover annual grants for 4.3 years or 3.4 years if excluding  donor-endowed funds.
