About Pancreatic Cancer Canada:

The National Pancreatic Cancer Canada Foundation (PCC) is Canada’s only foundation dedicated to raising money and awareness for pancreatic cancer. Since 2006, PCC has invested over $3m into research focussed on discovering new and better ways to diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer, and improve the quality of life of people living with the disease.

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Canada, claiming nearly as many lives each year as breast and prostate cancer. Yet it remains one of the most seriously underfunded cancers, receiving less than 1% of research and charitable funding, a gap which PCC hopes to fill.  Through raising awareness, establishing partnerships with leading cancer institutions, advocating for increased government and private funding, establishing more affiliates across Canada, as well as continuing to fund research, PCC’s ultimate goal is to make a difference in the fight to end pancreatic cancer.

From PCC's financial statements, there is no breakout of any program costs other than grants.  In 2014, 41% of  grants went to a new Innovative Grant Competition intended to spur new approaches to fighting pancreatic cancer, 32% to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, 11% to the Cancer Research Society, 9% to the BC Cancer Foundation, 2% to the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and 6% undisclosed

Financial Review:

In F2014, PCC’s administrative costs were 23% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 15% of donations. It had funding reserves of $1.0m, which cover annual program costs 1.8 times.

This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by PCC. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
