About International Fellowship of Christians and Jews of Canada:

International Fellowship of Christians and Jews of Canada’s (IFCJC) mission is to promote better relations and understanding between Christians and Jews. It encourages greater cooperation between the two communities on issues of shared biblical concern and supports Israel and Jews in crises.

IFCJC has three key programs: Guardians of Israel, Isaiah 58, and On Wings of Eagles. Under Guardians of Israel, IFCJC spent $3.2m to runs various programs such as Feeding the Hungry which supports 30 soup kitchens, Helping Children, Dental Care, and Holocaust Survivors to help victims in Israel. IFCJC’s Isaiah 58 spent $2.5m to help Jewish orphans and elderly in the former Soviet Union. This program provides food, medical care, winter care, biblically-based education and vocational training and a safe place to live for abandoned Jewish children. The On Wings of Eagles program, $1.7m in program spending, helps Jews immigrate to Israel.

IFCJC's annual charity return filed with Canada's Charities Directorate reports $4.5m in 2015 and $3.7m in 2014 funding Keren Heyesod in Illinois, USA. Keren Heyesod may be a United Israel Appeal program. IFCJC's 2016 return is not yet available. Charity Intelligence cannot reconcile this grant funding with IFCJC's program spending reported in its audited financial statements.

Financial Review:

International Fellowship of Christians and Jews of Canada is a big-cap charity with $10.7m in donations in F2016. Its administrative costs are 8% of revenues and its fundraising costs are 24% of donations. For every dollar donated, 68 cents go towards IFCJC’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. The charity has funding reserves of $464k, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 6%. This means that the charity can only cover less than 1 month of its annual program costs using its existing reserves, indicating a need for funding.
