About Women's Auxiliary of the Hospital for Sick Children:
Formed in 1950, The Women’s Auxiliary of the Hospital for Sick Children (WA) aims to provide another dimension of care and concern for patients and their families. WA has over 200 members, who assist in 16 different areas of the hospital, including an adolescent-clinic knitting program, baby gift bags and bravery beads.
Last year WA provided the Paediatric Advance Care Team with Bereavement Carts for each hospital unit. From 2013-2014 WA funded the purchase of 161 baby gift bags, 306 birthday cakes, 22,386 bravery beads, 670 Christmas decorations, and more. WA is continuing to contribute to its $2m commitment to the Chair in Urology and Regenerative Medicine.
WA raises nearly half of its funds through the 5Fifty5 Shop, which had net revenues of $336k in F2014. The 5Fifty5 Shop is operated by the volunteers of WA, who sell books, toys, gifts and SickKids logo items to hospital visitors and patients.
In F2014 administrative costs were 5% of revenues. WA did not report any fundraising costs. WA has funding reserves of $639k, which cover 105% of annual grants. In F2014 WA had disbursements of $219k for Hospital projects, and $390k for the Urology Chair.
