About Baycrest Centre Foundation:

Thanks to the vision of a group of dedicated and committed women who volunteered their time to care for the frail elderly in the Jewish community, Baycrest opened its doors in 1918 as the Toronto Jewish Old Folks Home, a semi-detached house on Cecil Street. Now located on a 22-acre campus on Bathurst Street, Baycrest addresses the needs of more than 2,500 people each day, including frail, elderly individuals as well as active seniors. The organization, fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, is an internationally-recognized academic health sciences centre that focuses on innovations in aging and brain health.

Baycrest attributes its success to strengths in areas such as enabling the elderly to realize their maximum physical, psychosocial, and spiritual well-being, providing and facilitating services and programs to assist elderly people to live in the community and offering a supportive and caring environment if they cannot do so. It conducts activities in an innovative and fiscally-responsible manner, while attracting and retaining high-quality and dedicated staff across all disciplines.

The Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI) at Baycrest Health Sciences was officially launched in May 2015 with plans to have it up and running by the fall of 2015. The $123.5m centre, which will focus on the causes of cognitive decline in seniors, received $42m and $23.5m in federal and provincial funding. The funding is matched by a further $25m commitment from Baycrest Foundation and $33m from partner organizations.



Financial Review:

Baycrest raised $19.1m through donations and fundraising events for F2014. Investment income excluding the unrealized gains (losses) was $374k.
