About Bridgepoint Foundation:

Founded in 1990, Bridgepoint Foundation raises and grants money to fund Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, a part of Sinai Health SystemIn 2015, Mount Sinai combined with Bridgepoint Active Healthcare and formed Sinai Health System, which also includes Circle of Care and Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute. Sinai Health System combines acute, complex, rehabilitative, primary, and home care as well as other community-based services. Money granted by the Foundation is used to fund Bridgepoint Active Healthcare’s patient programs, facilities, research, academic pursuits, and equipment. In F2020, the Foundation granted $2.2m.

Bridgepoint Active Healthcare is a 446-bed rehabilitation and complex care hospital affiliated with the University of Toronto. The hospital states that it is the largest organization in Canada to focus exclusively on research, care, and teaching for people with complex health conditions. The hospital’s clinical areas of focus include inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, palliative care, dialysis, and specialized complex care. In F2021, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare had 7,049 outpatient visits and 4,000 virtual patient visits.

Results and Impact

In F2021, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare pivoted its operations in light of the covid-19 pandemic. The Foundation established a covid-19 emergency response fund to support patient care and equipment needs at the hospital. The hospital began accepting patient transfers from acute care hospitals in covid-19 hotspot areas with no room for patients. Bridgepoint Active Healthcare accepted over 120 patient transfers in four months.

In F2020, Bridgepoint Foundation had total donations and special events revenues of $574k. Administrative costs were 43% of revenues and fundraising costs were 9% of donations. This results in total overhead spending of 52%, compared to 43% in F2019 and 34% in F2018. This increase in overhead spending was mainly due to the large decrease in donations and special event revenues from F2018 to F2020. For every dollar donated to the Foundation, 48 cents go to the cause, which is outside Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.

Bridgepoint Foundation has $7.4m in funding reserves, which could cover almost three years and five months of annual grants at the F2020 level.

Bridgepoint Foundation has not reported employee compensation on its CRA T3010 filings since F2015.

This charity report is an update that has been sent to Bridgepoint Foundation. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
