About Canadian Red Cross:
Founded in Canada in 1896, Canadian Red Cross (CRC) works to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity in Canada and around the world. It seeks to be the leading humanitarian organization through which people voluntarily demonstrate their caring for others in need. CRC is one of 187 members of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent.
With around 20,000 volunteers and 314 branches in Canada, over a third of Canadian Red Cross programs provide community health services, health equipment loans, and first aid training. In September 2014, CRC sold its half interest in Red Cross Care Partners, discontinuing $86m in personal support services. International operations respond to national disasters and also international development with the distribution of insecticide-treated mosquito nets, vaccinations, medicine, and vitamin supplements.Through its Maternal, Newborn and Child Health programs, Canadian Red Cross reached out to more than one million mothers and children in 2013, one third of these in Mali.
In F2014, CRC responded to floods in Alberta, Lac Mégantic by mobilizing teams of volunteers from across the province and deploying emergency equipment to meet the basic needs of people affected by the disaster. Disaster response is one program of Canadian Red Cross operations distinct from its national community health programs and international development. Charity Intelligence has separate reports for donors on Canadian Red Cross disaster operations.

CRC has $195m in funding reserves (excluding donor endowed funds of $1.3m), largely to fund rebuilding efforts in disaster areas. These funding reserves cover annual program costs 82%.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by CRC. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
