About SOS Children's Villages Canada:
Founded in 1949, SOS Children’s Villages Canada (SCVC) is a member of SOS Children’s Villages International. It raises funds in Canada and sends them to SOS Children’s Villages International. The international division supports orphaned and poor children by establishing ‘villages’ where the charity constructs 10-15 houses per village, and women, trained by SCVC, take care of 5-10 children in each house. SCVC funds villages in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. It also funds disaster relief efforts. The charity states that as of F2015, around the world, 87.6 million are in need of humanitarian assistance and 30 million children have fled their houses due to violence.
In F2016, SOS Children’s Villages Canada allocated $1.5m to SOS Children’s Villages International. It sent money to emergency response programs in 18 countries, helping 892,000 people. SCVC funds mobilized resources in the Middle East to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis. In Syria, Interim Care Centres are caring for 104 children and child services are protecting 6,098 youth. Interim Care Centres in Lebanon are supporting 177 children. In addition to providing shelter, SCVC is promoting education and training for poor children in disaster-affected countries. SCVC reports that, since its formation, it has given safe and stable homes to over 79,000 children in 134 countries through 550 villages.
SOS Children’s Villages Canada is a big-cap charity with $5.4m in donations in F2016. Its administrative costs are 10% of revenues, and its fundraising costs are 31% of donations. For every dollar donated, 59 cents go towards SCVC’s programs, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. The charity has $3.5m in total funding reserves of which $406k is donor-endowed. This results in a program cost coverage ratio, excluding donor-endowed funds, of 94%, meaning that the charity can cover 11 months of its annual program costs using its existing reserves.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by the charity. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
