About Alzheimer Society of Ontario:
Founded in 1983, Alzheimer Society of Ontario (ALZO) is one of thirteen provincial Alzheimer Societies working with Alzheimer Society of Canada toward a common goal of a world without dementia. ALZO runs care and education programs for people affected by dementia and funds research projects studying treatments and cures for the disease.
ALZO funds dementia research through the Alzheimer Society Research Program (ASRP). The program receives funding from all provincial Alzheimer Societies, Alzheimer Society of Canada and outside donors. ASRP gives grants to research projects that either study treatments and cures for dementia or investigate issues that lower the quality of life for people affected by dementia. In 2016, ASRP gave out 35 grants and awards nationally. ALZO’s website provides background information for 18 researchers in Ontario that received funding from ASRP.
Alzheimer Society of Ontario works with the provincial government and advocates for better support services and policies for people living with dementia and their families. Together, the Ontario Government and ALZO are developing the Ontario Dementia Strategy. In 2015, ALZO conducted a Dementia Strategy Priorities survey and participated in 8 roundtable discussions across Ontario with people with dementia and caregivers.
Alzheimer Society of Ontario is a Big-Cap charity with total donations of $6.8m in F2016. Administrative costs are 13% of revenues and fundraising costs are 5% of donations. For every $1 donated, 82 cents go to the cause. This falls within Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range of overhead costs.
Funding reserves of $5m can cover 62% of annual program costs. This means that ALZO has enough funding to cover 7 months of program costs. This is below average and indicates that ALZO needs funding.
This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by the Alzheimer Society of Ontario. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
