About Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy:

Founded in 1947, Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy (OFCP) supports people in Ontario living with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that affects body movement and muscle coordination. Caused by brain injury during development, the disorder presents differently from person-to-person – some people live with no obvious effects, while others need mobility devices and caregivers to help them with daily living. OFCP reports that as of 2015, over 50,000 people in Ontario live with cerebral palsy.

Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy outlines eight ‘principle activities’ in its 2016-19 strategic report: planning services & support; educational services & system navigations support; children & families services; membership services; funding assistance for equipment; funding assistance for life-enriching activities; funding assistance for services, programs & housing; cerebral palsy research; and cerebral palsy awareness. OFCP’s programs and services are funded almost entirely through the collection and resale of used clothing and other used goods.

In its 2016 annual report, OFCP states that membership increased during the year, as well as website traffic and online donations. The charity has a combined reach of over 55,000 people on Facebook and Twitter as of 2016, and its Facebook page has 1,600 likes – OFCP states that this makes the page Canada’s number two page for cerebral palsy.

Financial Review:

Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy is a micro-cap charity with donations of $259k in F2015. Administrative costs are 139% of total revenues based on Ci’s analysis and the charity reports no fundraising costs in F2016.

Ci reports OFCP’s household pickup services revenues net of expenses in business activities, decreasing revenue by $6.4m in F2015. Administrative costs of $560k dwarf the remaining $397k in total revenue (less investment income). Ci speculates that the charity is not allocating a portion of total administrative costs to its household pickup services expense, which causes the pickup service to show a net profit. F2013 is similar with net losses of $60k in business activities paired with an extremely high administrative cost ratio of 250%. Fundraising costs were reported as 0 for F2015 on the charity's audited financial statements.

OFCP holds funding reserves of $12.2m that can cover annual program costs for 13.8 years.

This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by OFCP. Comments and edits may be forthcoming.
