About Trans Canada Trail:
Established in 1992, Trans Canada Trail is a national charity that promotes the development and use of the Trans Canada Trail. The charity provides funds to local trail builders to support the development of the trail. The Trans Canada Trail is one of the world’s longest networks of trails. The trail is a multi-use recreational trail comprised of land and water routes across urban, rural and wilderness landscapes. As of F2015, the trail is 80% complete and it is projected to be completed by 2017. When completed, the trail will stretch nearly 24,000 kilometres from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic oceans, linking Canadians in close to 1,000 communities. In F2015, the charity spent $8.4m on trail construction and $905k on promoting the use of the trail.
In F2015, non-government donations more than doubled from $2.9m in F2014 to $6.1m in F2015. The charity did not specify the source of additional donations. F2015 expenses also grew dramatically. Trail construction expenses more than tripled from $2.4m in F2014 to $8.4m in F2015. Trail promotion expenses nearly doubled from $505k in F2014 to $905k in F2015.
In F2015, Trans Canada Trail spent 7% of revenues on administrative costs and 23% of donations on fundraising costs. Total overhead costs of 30% fall within Ci's reasonable range. The charity has funding reserves of $11.6m, including donor-endowed funds of $53k. This funding reserve can cover annual programs for 15 months.
