About President's Choice Children's Charity:

President’s Choice Children’s Charity (PCCC) was founded in 2000 and  aims to help  kids who struggle with childhood hunger or have disabilities and require specialized equipment or therapy. PCCC is a granting charity – all program costs consisting of donations to other organizations and people in need. It has two major granting programs: Nutrition and Special Needs Assistance.

To fight childhood hunger, President’s Choice Children’s Charity’s Nutrition program funds two charities: Breakfast for Learning and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada. With PCCC funding, both charities direct Childhood Nutrition Grants to schools and organizations across Canada. PCCC’s Nutrition grants supported 2,271 childhood nutrition programs in 2014, which fed 2.5 million children.

President’s Choice Children’s Charity supports children with disabilities through its Special Needs Assistance granting program. PCCC grants money to families who require specialized equipment and services for  their disabled  child. The charity served 2,021 children in 2014 through personal grants to families. With these grants, PCCC paid for 34,000 hours of therapy and 276 children received home/vehicle accessibility modifications.

President’s Choice Children’s Charity receives annual donations from Loblaw Companies that cover administration and operation costs. With this support, PCCC claims that every dollar donated goes to helping kids through its granting activities.

Financial Review:

President’s Choice Children’s Charity is a Big-cap charity that collected $16.1m in donations and special events fundraising in F2015. Administrative costs are 5% of revenues and fundraising costs are 3% of donations, which falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. The charity receives recurring donations from Loblaw Companies Ltd., for which PCCC does not incur any related administrative costs because the amounts are not material to the financial statements.

Funding reserves of $12.5m can cover 92% of annual granting.
