Founded in 1978, Leucan supports children with cancer and their families in Quebec. Leucan is active in four pediatric oncology centres in Quebec: the CHU Sainte-Justine, the Montreal Children's Hospital at the McGill University Health Centre, the Centre mère-enfant du CHUQ and the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke. Its mission is to promote recovery and wellness in children with cancer, and offer support services to families. Leucan’s main programs include family support services, research grants and direct financial support for families.
Leucan’s family support services make up 66% of its program spending. These services include emotional support and assistance, socio-recreational activities, hospital playrooms, school awareness programs, massage therapy, end-of-life and bereavement services, and summer camps. In F2016, Leucan reported that 236 new families joined its emotional assistance programs, and that it organized over 60 socio-recreational activities for families. Leucan also gave 9,300 massages to cancer patients and offered end-of-life and bereavement services to 326 participants. Finally, its Leucan-CSN Summer Camp hosted 100 newly-diagnosed children and their families.
Leucan’s research grants (making up 18% of its program spending) funds clinical research projects conducted in Quebec pediatric oncology centres. It reports that over the last 20 years, it has donated more than $10 million to clinical research. In F2016, it granted $853k to clinical and fundamental research.
Finally, Leucan’s financial assistance program (making up 16% of its program spending) provides grants to families to help cover some of the costs associated with a childhood cancer diagnosis. In F2016, Leucan granted $760k to families.
Leucan is a big-cap charity with $9.0m in donations in F2016. It also received $1.3m in donated goods and services. Fees for service include membership fees and business activities include contribution to activities and rent. Administrative costs were 11% of revenues and fundraising costs were 45% of donations. For every $1 donated, 44 cents went to the cause, falling outside of Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range of overhead spending. The charity has $2.7m in funding reserves that can cover 5 months of annual programs and grants, indicating a need for funding.
This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by Leucan. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
