About Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation:
The Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation (PCFF) aims to spread awareness and fund research for prostate cancer. PCFF mainly raises funds through large-scale, one-day vehicle-based fundraising events, the TELUS Ride For Dad, and through ongoing public fundraising. Over 250,000 people have been involved in TELUS Ride For Dad events, which take place in more than 40 major cities across Canada. To date, PCFF has donated more than $13m towards prostate cancer research and awareness.
There are approximately 1.2 million men with prostate cancer in Canada; however, thousands of men don’t know they have it. In F2013 PCFF invested $649k into awareness and media initiatives that support the “get it checked” message. Initiatives include television and radio PSAs, billboards, print ads, transit ads and handouts.
In F2013 PCFF granted $856k to 21 organizations. The top five grants went to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation ($116k or 14% of total grants), Alberta Cancer Foundation ($103k or 12%), Bliss Murphy Centre ($75k or 9%), Grand River Hospital Foundation ($74k or 9%), and University Hospitals Kingston Foundation ($63k or 7%).
In F2013 administrative costs were 4% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 33% of donations. Funding reserves of $2m cover annual program costs 1.3 times.
