About LIFE Outreach International:
Life Outreach International (LOI) is the Canadian division of Life Outreach International Association of Churches Incorporated. There is no independent website or webpage available for the Canadian operations of Life Outreach International.
Life Outreach International’s United States website states that LOI’s mission is to use broadcast media to share “the transforming truth of God's love in word and deed.” LOI produces religious television and radio programming and broadcasts the Gospel throughout Canada through television and radio programs. It also distributes religious videos and materials by mail.
The charity’s international website reports that it encourages the support of missions and relief programs in areas of need around the world. Some of its current outreaches include Water for LIFE which has helped build more than 5,800 water wells around the world, Mission Feeding which provides food to more than 400,000 children in villages around the world, especially across Sub-Saharan Africa, and RescueLIFE which provides education and prevention to children living in villages who are potential targets for human traffickers.
Life Outreach International’s audited financial statements do not report cost allocations for fundraising and administration. Charity Intelligence has taken this important information from the charity’s T3010 filing with the CRA. The F2017 annual filing was not yet posted when this report was updated. Ideally the charity’s auditors, Grant Thornton, would report this information in its audited financial statements. Without this additional information, Life Outreach International’s overhead spending and program cost coverage may be misrepresented for F2017.
Life Outreach International is a Large charity with donations of $6.5m in F2017. Its administrative costs are 10% of revenues and its fundraising costs are 11% of donations. For every dollar donated to the charity, $0.80 goes towards its programs and grants, falling within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. LOI has spent more money than it has brought in during each of the past 4 years. The charity currently holds funding reserves of $2.0m which can cover less than 4 months of annual program and grant costs, indicating a need for donations.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to Life Outreach International for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
