About Cystic Fibrosis Canada:
Founded in 1960, Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s (CF Canada) mission is to “help all people living with CF by funding targeted world-class research, supporting and advocating for high-quality individualized CF care.” Its vision is “a world without cystic fibrosis.” CF Canada reports that one in every 3,600 children born in Canada will have CF and that the genetic disease results in a median life expectancy of 52 years. There is no cure for the disease.
Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Research program provides grants to researchers focused on the cause and treatment of CF. Research topics include gene therapy, CF-related diabetes, lung inflammation, personalized medicine, CFTR proteins, quality of life and lung infections. In F2016, CF Canada invested $5.3 million in cystic fibrosis research, making up 49% of its program spending. It funded 46 studies, 24 fellows and students, and 8 targeted research programs and partnerships.
Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Clinical Care program provides grants to CF clinics to ensure that personnel are available to serve CF patients. The grants also fund professional development courses for clinic personnel. In F2016, CF Canada invested $2.2 million in 42 CF clinics and associated outreach centres, making up 20% of its program spending. The 42 clinics support 4,100 Canadians across the country. CF Canada also reports that 34 CF patients received transplants during the year. Cystic Fibrosis Canada also has Education and Public Awareness programs (13% of program spending) and Advocacy programs (3% of program spending).
Cystic Fibrosis Canada is a large charity, with donations and special events revenues of $17.3m in F2015. Its administrative costs are 15% of revenues and its fundraising costs are 30% of donations. For every $1 donated to the charity, 55 cents is put towards its programs, falling outside of Ci’s reasonable range. Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s funding reserves of $16.3m include $94k in donor-endowed funds. This results in a program cost coverage ratio, excluding donor-endowed funds, of 152%. This means that the charity can cover 1.5 years of its annual programs using its existing reserves.
