About Chalice Canada:
Founded in 1992, Chalice Canada is a Catholic international charity focused on child, family, and community development in 15 countries. Chalice aims to help poor people in these countries by sponsoring children, and funding Community Projects, Critical Needs, Disaster Relief, and Nutrition.
In F2018, Chalice Canada’s program spending segmented by geographic location was 28% in Asia, 26% in Latin America, 32% in Africa, and 14% in Haiti and Ukraine. These funds were used for child sponsorship, special gifts, grants, a nutrition program, community projects, human development programs, and more. Chalice Canada has 57 sponsor sites across 15 developing countries.
Chalice Canada’s community projects focus on sustainable farming, providing education, and building homes. In F2018, Chalice built or repaired 37 schools and 247 homes. It also ran 262 farming and water projects.
Chalice Canada’s Critical Needs program focuses on medical and housing emergencies. In F2018, Chalice Canada responded to 52 critical needs. This included four housing needs, two heating needs, and 39 medical needs.
In F2018, Chalice Canada had three main Disaster Relief responses. It provided flood relief in Paraguay and Peru, hurricane relief in Haiti, and drought relief in Kenya and Tanzania.
Results and Impact:
Chalice Canada reports that since its school lunch program started, students have been doing significantly better in the classroom. Recently in Gilgil, Kenya, scores on the national primary school exam increased by 30 points. Before Chalice’s nutrition program, students in this township were scoring below average, and the numbers had been declining each year.
While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of Chalice Canada’s results and impact.
Chalice Canada is a large charity, with total donations of $25.9m in F2018. Administrative costs are 4% of revenues (excluding investment income) and fundraising costs are 6% of donations. For every dollar donated, 90 cents go to the cause. This is within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $9.6m can cover 4.5 months of annual program costs.
