About Murchison Foundation:
Founded in 1984, the Murchison Foundation aims to assist in providing programs and services for people experiencing mental illness on Prince Edward Island. It seeks to fulfil this mission by granting funds to the Canadian Mental Health Association of P.E.I. The Foundation is named for Dr. Alexander Murchison, a pioneer of mental health services in the province, whose efforts brought great progress in mental health treatment facilities within the province.
The Murchison Foundation raises funds through two bingo operations in the province: Bingoworld Charlottetown and Bingoworld Summerside. In F2012, the two locations generated $3.6m in revenues, of which only $120k was granted to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
In F2012, the Foundation’s administrative costs were 19% of revenues, while fundraising costs were very high, at 77% of donations and special events revenue. Due to over $550k in long-term debt related to a mortgage and $49k in bank indebtedness, the Foundation has negative funding reserves and a negative program cost coverage.
