About Alberta Easter Seals Society:
The Alberta Easter Seals Society (AES) aims to provide services that foster inclusion, independence and recreation for individuals with disabilities and medical conditions. Programming includes a recreation camp, residential home, equipment and support services, consultation, education, and the promotion of social policy that assists disabled Albertans within the community.
Easter Seals Camp Horizon provides campers with the opportunity to learn new skills, overcome challenges, and build a support network. Over 1000 campers with disabilities and special needs attend camp each year. AES subsidizes the cost of sending every child to camp by 50%. Equipment and Support Services provides specialized mobility equipment for individuals with physical disabilities based on financial need. In 2014 AES provided clients with 246 pieces of equipment, including power scooters and wheelchairs. The Easter Seals McQueen Residence provides a home to nine adults with physical disabilities. In addition, the Phyllis Davidson Scholarship Program allowed 10 students to receive scholarships.
In F2014, 43% of program costs and grants went to the recreation camp, 29% to equipment support services, 22% to the residential home, 4% in grants to other charities, and 1% to public education.
In F2014 administrative costs were 6% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 13% of donations. AES has funding reserves of $5.5m (including $105k in donor-endowed funds), which cover annual program costs 1.8 times.
