About Special Olympics British Columbia:
Founded in 1980, Special Olympics BC (SOBC) is part of the Special Olympics movement in the province of British Columbia and is affiliated with Special Olympics Canada and Special Olympics International. SOBC provides sport training and competitive activities to individuals with intellectual disabilities, and currently works in 57 communities in the province. These individuals go on to participate in regional, provincial, and national Special Olympics events.
SOBC offers training for 18 sports including summer sports such as basketball and golf, as well as winter sports such as cross-country skiing and curling, offered to children aged eight and up. The charity also runs youth programs for children from ages two to 18, a year-round fitness program, and athlete health initiatives. SOBC has prepared a detailed strategic plan to increase its current base of 4,350 participants in SOBC programs to 5,600 by 2018.
Administrative costs are 16% of revenues and the charity does not report fundraising costs. At the end of F2014, SOBC had funding reserves of $3.8m (of which $1.2m was donor-endowed). The funding reserves cover annual program costs for 1.4 years, or 1 year excluding donor endowed funds.
