About United Way of Saskatoon and Area:
Founded in 1959, United Way of Saskatoon raises funds to address human service needs in the Saskatoon region. The organization funds a number of agencies with a focus on three missions: the provision of shelter, food and employment to at-risk people; the improvement of community inclusion and their access to services; and the promotion of learning and development opportunities for children.
It raises funds primarily through the annual Community Campaign, which includes donations from company payrolls, corporations and individuals. In addition, it has a call line called 211-Saskatchewan in collaboration with the United Way of Regina to provide information on a range of community and government services. In F2015, the top three searches on the related web-based tool were childcare, mental health and shelters.
In F2015, the United Way of Saskatoon made long-term grants totalling $3m, and short-term grants totalling $210k. This charity does not publicly disclose the amount of money allocated to each agency.
Fundraising costs are 12% of donations, and administrative costs are 11% of revenues. The organization has funding reserves of $2.9m, which cover 65% of annual program costs.
This report is an update that is being reviewed by the charity. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
