About SickKids Foundation:
Founded in 1972, SickKids Foundation is the fundraising organization for the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, one of the world's foremost pediatric healthcare institutions and Canada's leading centre dedicated to advancing children's health through the integration of patient care, research and education. In F2015, the Hospital received 289,621 emergency and clinic visits, admitted 15,817 patients, and performed 12,206 surgeries.
The SickKids Research Institute had 1,658 research staff and 1,166 research trainees who worked on 2,168 research projects in F2015. Crucial scientific breakthroughs in F2015 include: possible explanation of loss of early childhood memories and removal of a bone tumor using incision-less surgery. Previous milestones include: growing lung cells from the skin cells of cystic fibrosis patients, finding a common diabetes drug that might help brain injuries, and curing a toddler of inflammatory bowel disease with a bone marrow transplant.
Next to the government, SickKids is the largest funder of child health research, learning and care in Canada. In F2015, SKF grants went towards research (59% of total grants), patient care (29%), education (6%) and others (6%).
Fundraising costs are 23% of donations and administrative costs are 4% of revenue. The Foundation has funding reserves of $1.1b (including $355m of donor-endowed funds), which cover annual program costs 10.1 times (or 6.8 times excluding donor-endowed funds).
