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. In 2016, its ladyballs campaign generated an estimated 1 billion touchpoints, and stories about ovarian cancer generated 60 million impressions. OCC has three main programs: knowledge and awareness, support, and research.
OCC’s support program includes literature and workshops. Its By Your Side guide was distributed to 1,387 Canadians in F2016. The charity also hosts a workshop for women with the disease, called Picking Up the Pieces, which was held in 8 locations across Canada in F2016. Its awareness program reached Canadians nationwide through the ladyballs and the teal campaigns. Its Survivors Teaching Students campaign delivered 34 presentations to 1,392 future healthcare professionals and scientists to help understand the experience of ovarian cancer. For the second year, OCC has partnered with the Cancer Research Society to fund research in ovarian cancer, funding two promising studies. The Cancer Research Society matches the grant from Ovarian Cancer Canada, effectively doubling the funding. 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. It reports that a 2014 grant recipient focused on immune response to cancer will begin clinical trials in 2017.
Ovarian Cancer Canada is considered a medium-cap charity, receiving $3.8m in donations and special events revenues in F2016. Administrative costs were 6% of revenues and fundraising costs represented 33% of donations. For every dollar donated, 61 cents goes to the cause, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. OCC has funding reserves of $1.5m which can cover 7 months of program costs. This indicates a need for funding.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by OCC. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
