About Ronald McDonald House Newfoundland and Labrador:
Officially opened on September 27, 2012, the Ronald McDonald House of Newfoundland and Labrador (RMHNL) provides a home-away-from-home for sick children, and their families, who must travel to St. Johns, to receive specialized pediatric care and treatment at the nearby Janeway Children's Health and Rehabilitation Centre. The House, with 15 bedrooms, is specifically designed to provide a home environment for sick children, their siblings and their parents. Each room is decorated with bright colors, comfortable furniture and child-inspired accessories.
In F2016, RMHNL accommodated 439 families with the average stay being 11 nights for 4,832 nights of comfort provided to families. It provides multiple programs to the children and their families including baked goods, home-cooked dinners, quilts and providing tickets to events and recreational programs. In F2016, 7,700 meals were provided to families staying at the house and 338 quilts were given to sick children and their siblings.
RMHNL asks that families make a minimal per-night donation to stay at the house. McDonald's Restaurants of Canada and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Canada provide in-kind and financial donations raised through events, suppliers, coin boxes and McHappy Day events. It estimates that in F2016, it saved families $724,000 in accommodation costs. The Ronald McDonald House of Newfoundland and Labrador was unable to accommodate 245 families last year due to capacity constraints.
Ronald McDonald House of Newfoundland and Labrador is considered a medium-cap charity with donations and special events revenues of $1.2m in F2016. Given that a proper breakdown of fundraising costs is not available for F2016, using F2015 figures, its administrative costs stand at 5% of total revenues and fundraising costs represent 31% of donations. For every dollar donated, 64 cents goes to the cause, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. Its F2016 funding reserve stands at $2.0m which can cover program costs for 2 years.
Note: The charity does not explicitly disclose fundraising and administrative costs on its annual financial statements. Fundraising and administrative costs can be found on the charity’s T3010A filing. The charity's 2016 filing was unavailable at the time of this profile.
