About Hydrocephalus Canada :

Founded in 1973, Hydrocephalus Canada aims to provide support for individuals with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and their families while building awareness in the community. Hydrocephalus Canada recently changed its name from Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario. In 2014 the then-SB&H provided support, information and education to 26,442 individuals. The charity’s services include a toll-free phone and online help, programs for parents, children, youth and adults, information & education, a social media & community forum, awareness & prevention, and research.

In F2014, SB&H spent 61% of its programs and services expenditures on awareness and education, 26% on care and support, 8% on advocacy, 3% on research and 1% on scholarships.

SB&H strives to serve the broader community by providing support to parents who receive pre-natal diagnosis of SB&H. The charity also focuses on educating women about the benefits of folic acid in preventing neural tube defects.

Financial Review:

Total revenues have fallen 22% from $548k in F2012 to $425k in F2014. This decrease is mainly the result of fewer donations from corporations and foundations. The charity receives no government funding, and generates nearly half of its revenues through lottery and bingo. In F2014 administrative costs were 8% of revenues and fundraising costs were 27% of donations. SB&H has funding reserves of $413k (including $217k in donor-endowed funds), which cover 103% of annual program costs (50% excluding donor-endowed funds).

Given small donor interest in Hydrocephalus Canada, Charity Intelligence does not intend to update this charity report. Please contact Charity Intelligence if you would like this updated.
