About Fondation Québécoise du Cancer:
Founded in 1980, Fondation Québécoise du Cancer (FQC) offers lodging, information services and support services for people with cancer and their families in Quebec.
Lodging is Fondation Québécoise du Cancer’s major program, making up 55% of program costs in F2014. FQC runs four lodges in Montreal, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières and Gatineau, which house people who must travel for several weeks to receive radiation therapy or chemotherapy. FQC housed 2,737 people in 2014 across its four lodges, equal to 20,761 nights. The average length of stay per person helped was 8 nights.
Fondation Québécoise du Cancer’s Info-Cancer program made up 13% of program costs in F2014. Through a toll-free helpline, Info-Cancer helps people access the information they need from the exhaustive online resources available to them. In 2014, the Info-Cancer team responded to 17,000 requests for information.
Fondation Québécoise du Cancer also offers support services such as art therapy, massage therapy and kinesiology sessions for cancer patients. Support services made up 11% of program costs in F2014. FQC reports that its support services program gave 15,621 sessions for therapy and physical activity in 2014.
The remaining 21% of program costs in F2014 represents spending for Education and Awareness. Ci assumes this relates to increasing public awareness for cancer in Quebec.
Fondation Québécoise du Cancer is a medium-sized charity with donations of $4.4m in F2015. Administrative costs are 6% of revenues and fundraising costs are 34% of donations. $0.40 of every donated dollar goes toward overhead costs, which just falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. The charity’s funding reserves of $2.6m can cover only 68% of annual program costs, indicating a funding need.
