About Pancreatic Cancer Canada:
Pancreatic Cancer Canada Foundation (PCC) is Canada’s only foundation dedicated to raising money and awareness for pancreatic cancer. Its goals are to improve overall patient survival rates and create a brighter future for those affected. To achieve this, it has invested over $3.5m into research and has run awareness and support programs.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Canada among men and women. Of the major cancers, pancreatic cancer is the only one with single digit survival rates, with the 5-year survival rate at 8%. There has been little advancement in the fight, with this figure having not improved in the last 40 years. It remains one of the most seriously underfunded cancers. Pancreatic cancer was featured as the Special Topic in the 2017 edition of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Canadian Cancer Statistics publication.
In F2016, Pancreatic Cancer Canada disbursed $312k to the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, $225k to the innovative grant competition and contributed $50k in a collaboration with the Canadian Cancer Society and Craig’s Cause Collaboration. Its current research focus is a project called PancOne™, a multi-disciplinary partnership between major cancer centres in Canada with the aim to evaluate metastatic pancreatic cancer molecular signatures in a clinical trial setting.
Pancreatic Cancer Canada is a medium-cap charity with donations and special events revenues of $1.5m in F2016. PCC’s administrative costs were 11% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 31% of donations. For every dollar donated, 58 cents goes towards the cause, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. It had funding reserves of $1.7m, which cover program costs for 1.2 years.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by PCC. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
