About Community Foundation of Ottawa:
Founded in 1987, the Community Foundation of Ottawa nurtures philanthropy and works with partners to have an enduring impact on communities. The Foundation pools the charitable gifts of many donors into a permanent, income-earning endowment that benefits the community at large and fulfils the philanthropic objectives of individual donors. Grants are made to charities from the earnings of these funds to seed, nurture and support initiatives that strengthen the Ottawa community.
In F2011, the Foundation granted $5.4m to 462 charities in the following sectors: social services (24%), religion (22%), health (15%), education (12%), children and youth (12%), arts and culture (7%), scholarship (4%), environment (2%), and other (2%). The Foundation has approximately 650 endowment funds, including 20 funds established in F2011.
Administrative costs are 20% of revenue and the Foundation reported no fundraising costs. The Foundation has funding reserves of $92.6m (including $84.6m of donor-endowed funds), which cover annual program costs 31.2 times.
