About Mennonite Central Committee Canada:
Founded in 1920, Mennonite Central Committee Canada (MCCC) is a Christian charity which helps communities to develop, provides disaster relief, and promotes justice and peace. It cooperates with Mennonite Central Committee U.S. to form MCC International. Through working with local churches, MCC International worked on 767 projects in 56 countries during F2017.
MCCC allocated 54% of F2017 program spending to community development, working to improve people’s long-term access to food, water, healthcare, and education. Over $5 million worth of goods were shipped to 10 countries including Ukraine, Jordan, and Ethiopia. These goods include blankets, canned meat, school supplies, and sanitation products. In F2017, MCCC helped bring 1,140 refugees to Canada. More than half of the refugees helped came from Syria. MCCC’s Ten Thousand Villages project sells products made by workers from 27 countries. The program provides over 20,000 people with fair wages.
In F2017, 32% of program spending went to disaster responses in DR Congo, Bangladesh, Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, Haiti, Cuba, and Ukraine. MCCC provided emergency food and shelter, while helping people heal from trauma and working to reduce conflict. In F2017, MCCC distributed food to 94,519 people, clothing and home items to 25,834 people, and 10,335 heaters for cold weather.
Mennonite Central Committee Canada allocated 14% of program spending to justice and peacebuilding. Peacebuilding programs teach mediation and conflict management techniques to reduce violence. With justice restoration, MCCC helps addicts, survivors of physical or sexual abuse, and criminals to reintegrate into society.
Results and Impact: Mennonite Central Committee Canada supported Bangladeshi farmers to raise livestock. The farmers’ income increased by an average of seven times, and nutrition has improved with people consuming 12% more protein. In Ethiopia, 1,529 people learned better farming techniques, improving crop yield from 1.5 tonnes/hectare to 8.7.
MCCC served daily meals to 21,400 children in South Sudan. School enrollment increased by 300% and the children’s concentration improved.
In DR Congo, 375 people from two opposing groups were trained in conflict management. After the program, 52% of trainees shared food with a previous enemy, 50% let an enemy stay in their home, and 45% took part in future conflict resolution meetings.
Mennonite Central Committee Canada is a Major 100 charity with donations of $29.4m in F2017. The charity received $17.1m in government funding, representing 35% of total revenue. Administrative costs are 6% of revenues and fundraising costs are 2% of donations. For every $1 raised, 92 cents go to the cause, falling within Ci’s reasonable range.
MCCC reports $14.6m in donor-endowed funding reserves but holds $5.0m in funding reserves. This creates a negative donor-endowed program cost coverage, showing a need for funding.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to Mennonite Central Committee Canada for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
