About Toronto Wildlife Centre:
TWC is the largest wildlife centre in Canada, and the only one servicing the six million residents of the Greater Toronto Area. TWC was established in 1993 by several partners; one of these, Nathalie Karvonen, remains today as Executive Director. TWC's work is carried out by a small group of highly skilled paid staff, including 3 part-time veterinarians, who are supported by some 200 dedicated volunteers. The charity’s focus is on creating successful co-habitation between humans and wildlife. In addition to its core wildlife rehabilitation mandate, TWC does educational and outreach work, and has trained personnel working in other organizations.
TWC treats approximately 5,000 animals yearly and fields over 200 calls per day on its wildlife hotline during peak season. The City of Toronto and neighbouring municipalities rely heavily on TWC for wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and education, but the charity receives no financial support from any of these municipalities.
TWC raises adequate donation funds to cover its annual program expenses, but is carrying a funding reserve deficit of $228k. To cover this deficit the charity is planning to sell a surplus property. TWC is planning to move out of its current rented space to new facilities within two years and will be launching a capital campaign to raise at least $4m. In F2013, TWC's administrative costs were 7% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 13% of donations.
