About Sinai Health Foundation:

On February 1, 2016, the Mount Sinai Hospital Foundation officially changed its name to Sinai Health Foundation.  This name change was due to the formation of Sinai Health System, a new organization that resulted from a voluntary amalgamation between Mount Sinai Hospital, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute and Circle of Care, a home care health provider. Together, the collective organizations are building a "vertically integrated" health care providing research, treatment, rehab and home care. The aim is to provide patients with better care and smoother transitions.   

Sinai Health Foundation fundraises for research, patient care, and clinical education at Sinai Health System. In F2015, the foundation granted $25m to the  Mount Sinai Hospital and $10m to the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute.  In F2015, the  Mount Sinai Hospital had 60,930 emergency department visits, 745,319 ambulatory clinic visits, 183,697 medical imaging procedures, 6,599 births, and 16,156 surgeries.

The foundation passed the halfway mark for the $500m Renew Sinai Campaign, raising $255m as of F2015.  The donations from this campaign will be used to revitalize, rethink, and redesign every major area of care in the Sinai Health System. 

Financial Review:

In F2015, the Sinai Health Foundation's administrative costs were 8% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 11% of donations. Total overhead costs of 19% fall within Ci's reasonable range. The charity has funding reserves of $106m,  including donor-endowed funds of $94m. The total funding reserve can cover annual grants and programs for 3 years or 11 months excluding donor-endowed funds.
