About Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation:

Founded in 1988, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation generates funds for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). CAMH is Canada’s largest mental health and addiction hospital. Mental illness is the leading cause of disability in Canada and CAMH predicts a 60% increase in patient intake within the next twenty years.

In 2015, grants to CAMH accounted for 98% of the Center for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation’s total program (granting) activities. The Foundation classifies these grants into three groups. Research and Care made up 66% of CAMH grants, Infrastructure and Redevelopment accounted for 29% of CAMH grants, and Education and Public Awareness made up the remaining 4% in 2015.

In 2015, the Foundation’s Research and Care grants helped CAMH care for over 31,000 people, including 4,000 newly-admitted patients. The Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute is one of CAMH’s major research facilities. One of the Institute’s research centres, named the Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention, is currently conducting the world’s first clinical trial for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation as a treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

In 2014, CAMH opened the Gerald Sheff & Shanitha Kachan Emergency Department with help from the Foundation’s Infrastructure and Redevelopment grants. This doubled the amount of space available for 24-hour emergency care at CAMH. The Foundation’s 2015 report states that between 2006 and 2014, CAMH experienced a 76% increase in emergency room visits.

In 2014, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation launched its $200 million Breakthrough Campaign to improve treatment facilities and further research for mental illness and addiction.

Financial Review:

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation is one of Canada’s 100 largest charities in terms of donations, with total donations and special events fundraising of $27.1m in F2015. The charity’s audited financial statements do not separate administrative and fundraising costs. Total administrative and fundraising expenses are 30% of revenues. This falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Ci included $881k of special events costs in total fundraising and administration expenses, which is 52% of special events fundraising revenues for F2015.

Funding reserves of $81.8m can cover annual granting costs for 10.7 years. Omitting donor-endowed funds of $14.5m, reserves can cover annual granting costs for 9.7 years.

This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by the CAMH Foundation. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
