About Ovarian Cancer Canada:

Ovarian Cancer Canada (OCC) tackles all issues surrounding ovarian cancer. In the last 15 years, OCC has made enormous strides in educating Canadians. 15 years ago, Canadians barely knew anything about the disease; now it is a recognized women’s cancer. OCC has three main programs: knowledge and awareness, support, and research.

OCC’s knowledge and awareness program includes fact sheets, a Knowledge is Power program, which includes presentations offered in the community and through employers, and an online and face-to-face accredited program for family physicians. OCC’s support program includes the “You Are Not Alone” program, an information kit composed of a handbook and DVD, an information phone line, an online support group, and telephone and webinar education sessions. The majority of OCC’s grants are through partnership for bridge funding with CIHR; however, OCC does manage some grants internally, in which case, an external review committee is recruited by OCC's Research Committee, made up of three scientists, three healthcare professionals, and one survivor. OCC focuses on small grants to help researchers get the start-up money needed to conduct research which will provide the data required to request larger grants; $343k was granted to research in F2014. OCC is also focused on sparking medical students’ interest in gynecological studies. In F2014, nine students chose to specialize in gynecological oncology as a result of OCC's funding for related electives.

Financial Review:

In F2014, administrative costs were flat at 7% of revenues. Fundraising costs represented 37% of donations. OCC has enough funding reserves to cover 88% of annual program costs.

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