About SIM Canada:
SIM Canada is the Canadian faction of Serving in Mission (SIM) International, which was founded in 1893. SIM sends missionaries to more than 65 countries, and states that their purpose is that “no one should live and die without hearing God's good news, we believe that He has called us to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in communities where he is least known.”
In addition to missionary services, 15% of SIM Canada’s program costs go towards supporting emergency relief efforts in South Sudan and Ethiopia, where people are at risk of starvation because of severe drought conditions and intensifying conflict. SIM Canada states that 1.4 million children in East Africa are now at risk of death due to malnutrition.
Since inception, SIM claims that because of its services, over 9 million people have become believers and more than 18,000 churches have been established.
SIM Canada is a big-cap charity with $10.7m in donations in F2016, including $993k in donations from outside of Canada. Its administrative costs are 13% of revenues and its fundraising costs are 1% of donations. For every dollar donated, 87 cents go towards SIM Canada’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. SIM Canada has total funding reserves of $9m, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 101%. This means that the charity can cover 1 year of its annual program costs using its existing reserves.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by SIM Canada. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
