About Muscular Dystrophy Canada:
Founded in 1954, Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC) is an organization committed to bettering the lives of the over 50,000 Canadians affected by over 150 neuromuscular disorders that cause weakening and dysfunction of the muscles. Its mission is to provide support and other resources to those affected by neuromuscular disease as well as to search for a cure and enhanced treatment by funding research. MDC delivers a variety of programs within 5 key areas of service: education, information, advocacy, support and equipment.
Among the services that MDC offers are information guides on coping with neuromuscular disorders, local educational workshops at schools, local businesses and healthcare providers, support groups operated through local chapters of volunteers, and an equipment program that provides costly wheelchairs, scooters and other essential equipment to those in need. In F2014, MDC allocated 44% of its program expenses to support and equipment services, 16% to research programs and 33% to education and information services, and 7% to other programs.
April 14, 2016 Muscular Dystrophy Canada announced Barbara Stead-Coyle as its new CEO. Stead-Coyle was CEO of Nova Scotia Canadian Cancer Society actively introducing new laws banning tobacco products and leading fundraising campaigns. Stead-Coyle starts on May 24th and will be connecting with key stakeholder groups.
In F2014, MDC's administrative costs were 15% of revenues less investment income, while fundraising costs were 39% of donations. MDC has funding reserves of $10.4m, which cover annual program costs nearly 3 times.
