About Mennonite Central Committee Canada:

Founded in 1963, Mennonite Central Committee Canada (MCCC) is the Canadian arm of the Mennonite Central Committee, an international relief and development agency. MCCC is supported by 15 different Mennonite and Brethren in Christ groups across the country, and assists separately incorporated offices in 5 Canadian provinces. Its core objectives are to address injustice, promote alternatives to violence, promote healthy relationships, build capacity, work towards inclusion and encourage sustainable living.

MCCC works in over 60 countries with 450 partners across the globe. It is comprised of three main areas: disaster relief, community development, and justice and peace building.

Through its disaster relief program, it helps people in meeting their necessary needs during times of crisis, such as hurricane or war, with food and humanitarian relief programs. In F2016, its disaster relief program shipped 48,115 blankets and 11,755 relief kits.

Community development programs include food, water, health care, education programs, and migration and resettlement programs. In F2016, this program planted 1.7 million trees, shipped 894,558 lbs of meat, 87,651 school kits, and 41,946 lbs of dried soup, it planted 2,363 kitchen and community gardens, and constructed 776 water structures.

Its justice and peace building programs support peace education with peacebuilding and conflict transformation, conflict prevention and restorative justice programs.

Its Canadian programs include the Ten Thousand Villages program, which works to create opportunities with artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products to Canadian markets through fair-trade relationships.

Hurricane Matthew October 2016: MCCC's operations in Haiti focus on local partnerships, a development model that has evidence-based high impact. In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, Charity Intelligence is recommending MCCC as a "top pick" for Haiti relief. MCCC's work focuses in the rural mountains of Artibonite where few other charities work. This area suffered significant damage to houses, crops and livestock. MCCC is focusing on cholera prevention and food, listening and responding to the needs of Haitians.

Financial Review:

Mennonite Central Committee Canada is a Major 100 charity with donations of $17.2m in F2016. Its administrative costs were 5% of revenues, and its fundraising costs were 5% of donations. For every dollar donated, 90 cents go towards MCCC’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. MCCC had funding reserves of $4.3m in F2016, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 8%. This means that MCC can cover less than one month of its annual program costs using its existing reserves, showing a need for funding.

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