Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Foundation is a major 100 charity with $19.2m in donations and special events fundraising in F2018. Administrative costs were 3.6% of revenues and fundraising costs were 48.6% of donations. CHEO Foundation does not disclose lottery costs separately from fundraising costs, thus Charity Intelligence has included lottery costs in the fundraising ratio, likely raising it significantly. As such, for every $1 donated, 48 cents go to the cause. This is not within Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range for overhead spending.
The Foundation has funding reserves of $82.2m, of which $19.6m are donor-endowed. Excluding donor-endowed funds, CHEO Foundation has a program cost coverage ratio of 453% meaning they can cover annual grant spending for 4.5 years.
This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by CHEO Foundation. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
