About Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada:

Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC) provides after-school and out-of-school programs to children and youth, that support the healthy physical, educational and social development of young people and their families. BGCC started in 1900 as the Every Day Club in Saint John, New Brunswick. In 1929 the Boys' Clubs of Canada was established to represent more than 30 member Clubs and in 1974 the name changed to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. BGCC has grown into an association of over 96 clubs located in 700 communities across Canada, in neighborhoods where they are most needed, including large city centres, remote rural communities and First Nations Reserves.

BGCC has about 17,400 Community Volunteers and over 5,700 trained and dedicated full and part-time staff that served 200,000 children and youth in F2016. Its programs include physical activities, meals and snacks, academic support, skills and character development, and a chance to build positive relationships with peers and mentors.

In F2016, BGCC served 5.5 million meals and snacks at its 700 club service locations, granted $5.2 million to its local clubs, offered 22 national programs for children and youth, and distributed $289,000 in scholarships to 156 youth.

Financial Review:

Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada is a big-cap charity with $8.2m in donations and special events revenues. Its administrative costs are 15% of revenues, and its fundraising costs are 3% of donations. For every dollar donated, 82 cents go towards BGCC’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. BGCC has total funding reserves of $13.0m, of which $4.3m is donor-endowed. This results in a program cost coverage ratio, excluding donor-endowed funds, of 94%. This means that BGCC can cover just over 11 months of its annual program costs using its existing reserves.
