About Arthritis Society - Ontario Division:
The Arthritis Society Ontario (ASO) is the provincial division of the Arthritis Society of Canada (ASC) and while it is its own registered charity, ASO’s results are also incorporated into the ASC financial statements. ASC is the principal health charity providing education, programs, and support to Canadians living with arthritis. The Society conducts research to better understand the impact of arthritis, advocates for progressive arthritis policies, works with stakeholders to promote appropriate standards of care, and delivers educational programs to empower those living with arthritis to self-manage their disease.
Arthritis affects over 1.8 million people of all ages and backgrounds in Ontario. Approximately 60% of those affected are of working age, and two thirds are women. Since its founding, the Arthritis Society has been the largest non-government supporter of basic and applied arthritis research. ASO contributed $2.2m to research in F2013.
In F2013 ARSO had administrative costs of 1% of total revenues while fundraising costs were very high at 47% of donations. Research funding and other program costs accounted for 14% and 54% of revenues, respectively. Funding reserves of $2.4m include $2.0m in donor-endowed funds. Excluding these donor-endowed funds, reserves only cover 3% of annual program costs.
