About Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation:

Founded in 1957, the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation (ACHF) raises funds for family-centred child health programs, specialized life-saving equipment and advanced pediatric research and education at the Alberta Children's Hospital. The Hospital provides care to 90,000 children each year.

The Alberta Children's Hospital is a national leader in highly complex, minimally invasive surgery, including endoscopic brain surgery, and it has expertise in the fight against childhood cancer. It is recognized nationally for its high success rates in survival and low rates of graft vs host disease, a potentially debilitating or fatal complication of blood and marrow transplants (BMT). BMT offers some children with high-risk or recurrent leukemia, brain tumours, and recurrent Hodgkin's disease the best chance for survival. Grants from ACHF helped the hospital to become the first children’s hospital in western Canada with a 3T MRI, which provides high-definition images, enabling specialists to examine anatomical chemistry and function.

Financial Review:

ACHF's administrative costs are 4% of revenues and fundraising costs are 15% of donations. ACHF has funding reserves of $204m, $71m of which are donor-endowed.  Non-donor-endowed funding reserves cover annual grants 5.2 times.

This charity report is an update that has been sent to the charity for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
