About Ottawa Hospital Foundation:
Founded in 1999, Ottawa Hospital Foundation (OHF) works to inspire, enable, and recognize community support for patient care and enable research at The Ottawa Hospital and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. The Ottawa Hospital is one of Canada's largest acute care hospitals, serving 1.3m residents in Eastern Ontario. The Hospital has 1800 scientists, clinical investigators, trainees and staff working on 1663 active research projects and clinical trials. OHF raises funds for Ottawa's General, Civic, and Riverside hospitals.
The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre is the second largest outpatient cancer centre in Ontario, providing care for 24,000 patients annually. Donations to OHF helped fund the purchase of the da Vinci Surgical System in 2010, resulting in 1,189 successful surgeries. Funding also goes towards innovation in medical technology and procedures, such as the SIM Centre, which provides hands-on training and practice to doctors on human simulators.
In January 2017, construction began on the new Breast Health Centre, with the official opening anticipated for early 2018. This new centre will have state-of-the-art equipment, including a 3 Tesla MRI: the first in Canada to be dedicated to breast imaging. With the new building, exam room numbers will triple and more space will be dedicated to research and clinical trials.
Ottawa Hospital Foundation is a Major 100 charity, with donations of $24.4m in F2016. An additional $3.7m and $305k were raised in investments and lotteries, respectively. Of total grants given from Ottawa Hospital Foundation, 63% were allocated to Ottawa Hospital Research Institute ($11.3m) and 36% to Ottawa Hospital ($6.5m). Less than 1% of grants went to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine, and Dalhousie University Medical Research Foundation combined.
In F2016, administrative costs were 4% of revenues and fundraising costs were 18% of donations. As such, for every $1 donated, 78 cents went to the cause. This falls within Charity Intelligence’s range of reasonable overhead spending. OHF has funding reserves of $86.1m, including donor-endowed funds of $65.5m (76% of total funding reserves). OHF’s non-donor-endowed funding reserves cover 1.4 years of program costs.
