About Hospice Toronto:
Founded in 1988, Hospice Toronto (HT) is Toronto's first not-for-profit, volunteer-based, in-home hospice palliative care program. Hospice Toronto provides and facilitates access to care for people with life-threatening illnesses and provides support to their families and friends, all at no charge. HT’s programs include providing in-home support, support to children and youth carers, bereavement support, expressive art therapy, and various forms of relaxation therapy. Since founding, HT has served 11,811 people.
Through in-home support, staff and volunteers offer physical, emotional, spiritual and practical support to people with life-threatening diseases, such as facilitating the choice of living at home and connecting these people with resources. In F2017, HT provided in-home support to 962 people, down 12% from F2016.
Since 2011, Hospice Toronto has partnered with other organizations through its Young Carers Program (YCP) to meet the needs of young carers and their families by facilitating programs throughout Toronto. YCP focuses on recreational, social, educational and skill development activities. HT facilitates over 20 monthly programs throughout YCP. In F2017, HT certified 11 teen carers during Leaders in Training camp and supported therapeutic activities for 30 youth at Camp Zagehdowin.
In F2017, Hospice Toronto developed and facilitated an 8-week bereavement support group for HT’s caregivers and people who were grieving over a loved one.
Results and Impact: In F2017, over 42% of HT's clients receiving end-of-life care experienced a home death with the support of hospice volunteers and other palliative-care services.
Hospice Toronto is a Medium-sized charity with $1.3m in donations in F2017. Administrative and fundraising costs have fallen significantly since F2014. Administrative costs are 8% of total revenues, down from 19% in F2016. Fundraising costs are 1.2% of donations, down from 13% in F2016. For every dollar raised, 90 cents go to the cause, which falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. HT has funding reserves of $1.2m. Funding reserves can cover 1.9 years of program costs, up from an annual program coverage of 2 months in F2016. Program coverage is higher than HT’s historical values because its funding reserves were much higher in F2017, largely due to a $1.0m donation from a donor to be spent over the next four years.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to Hospice Toronto for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
