About Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation:
Established in 1985, Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation raises funds to benefit Janeway Children’s Health & Rehabilitation Centre, Newfoundland and Labrador’s only pediatric hospital. Each year, the hospital has approximately 123,000 patient visits and admissions. Donations to the foundation contribute to the purchase of medical equipment, education of staff, research, and programs related to children’s health and welfare.
Each year, Janeway Foundation funds $150k towards pediatric medical research. In F2016, funds were allocated to research in high-risk births, childhood obesity, genetics, infant feeding, and mental health. The foundation reports that approximately 1,000 people in Newfoundland and Labrador have type 1 diabetes, half of which are under the age of 18. Janeway Children’s Hospital’s research will aim to improve the well-being of those living with this illness.
Telemental Health program is a telemedicine service used across Canada and other countries to connect children with mental health concerns to health care professionals that can address their needs remotely. Janeway Foundation provided technological equipment required for videoconferencing between patients and doctors. The foundation reports that program usage has increased by 50% between F2015 and F2016, saving patients and families time and transportation costs.
In F2016, the foundation helped raise funds for a new fluoroscopy suite for the hospital. Fluoroscopy uses x-rays to capture moving images of organs. Fluoroscopy procedures reduce the radiation dose to the child by 50% and is a less invasive and alternative method for evaluation for patients that are not MRI compatible.
Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation is a medium-sized charity with $4.5m in donations and special events revenues in F2016. Administrative costs were 4% of revenues and fundraising costs were 30% of fundraising. As such, for every $1 donated, 66 cents go to the cause. This falls within Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $8.2m (including $2.2m in donor-endowed funds) can cover annual program costs 2.3 times excluding donor-endowed funds.
The charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
