Founded in 1978, Leucan supports children with cancer and their families in Quebec. Leucan is active in four pediatric oncology centres in Quebec: the CHU Sainte-Justine , the Montreal Children's Hospital at the McGill University Health Centre, the Centre mère-enfant du CHUQ and the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke. Its mission is to promote recovery and wellness in children with cancer, and offer support services to families. Leucan’s main programs include family support services, research grants and direct financial support for families.
Leucan’s family support services make up 66% of its program spending. These services include emotional support and assistance, socio-recreational activities, hospital playrooms, school awareness programs, massage therapy, end-of-life and bereavement services and summer camps. In F2015, Leucan reported that 265 new families joined its emotional assistance programs, and that it organized over 50 socio-recreational activities for families. Leucan also gave over 9,000 massages to cancer patients and offered end-of-life and bereavement services to 270 participants. Finally, its Leucan-CSN Summer Camp hosted over 350 newly-diagnosed children and their families.
Leucan’s research grants (making up 20% of its program spending) funds clinical research projects conducted in Quebec pediatric oncology centres. It reports that over the last 20 years, it has donated more than $10 million to clinical research.
Finally, Leucan’s financial assistance program (making up 14% of its program spending) provides grants to families to help cover some of the costs associated with a childhood cancer diagnosis. In F2015, Leucan granted $714,452 to families.
Leucan is a large charity, with donations of $9.4m in F2015. Its administrative costs are 10% of revenues and its fundraising costs are 41% of donations. For every $1 donated to the charity, 49 cents is put towards its programs, falling well below Ci’s reasonable range. The charity’s funding reserves of $3.8m results in a program cost coverage ratio of 59%. This means that it can cover 7 months of its annual programs using its existing reserves.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by Leucan. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
