About St. Boniface Hospital Foundation:
Founded in 1971, St. Boniface Hospital Foundation (SBHF) raises money to fund research and to improve the quality of healthcare provided at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The hospital has 527 beds and had more than 27,500 admissions in F2018. In F2018, SBHF granted $4.6m to St. Boniface Hospital, supporting areas including cardiac (heart) health, specialized care for women and children, mental health, and palliative care. The remaining grants in F2018 were allocated to other major gifts.
In F2018, SBHF funded equipment purchases to create the first Endovascular Hybrid Operating Room in Manitoba. Endovascular surgery is less invasive than other techniques to treat blood vessel issues. Donations from SBHF have also purchased a baby changing area, phone charging station, and two sleeper chairs for the hospital waiting room. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) has been equipped with an electric food heater and alarm system for the freezer to ensure that breastmilk and formula are stored at safe temperatures.
Results and Impact:
Ci highlights the following F2018 program outcomes from St. Boniface Hospital Foundation.
At St. Boniface Hospital, Dr. Lorrie Kirshenbaum discovered that the chemotherapy drug Doxorubicin damages a patient’s heart by ‘turning on’ the Bnip3 gene. This gene causes heart cells to die. He has also discovered that cancer cells which have lost the ability to stop dividing do not have the Bnip3 gene turned on.
Researchers have developed a drug that prevents the spread of two antibiotic-resistant bacteria. These bacteria were among the top 10 “priority pathogens” defined by the World Health Organization (WHO).
St. Boniface Hospital Foundation is a large charity with donations of $5.7m in F2018. The charity received $2.7m in net income from lotteries, representing 36% of total revenues. Administrative costs are 9% of revenues and fundraising costs are 17% of donations. For every dollar donated, 74 cents go to the cause, which is within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. SBHF has $68.8m in funding reserves of which $41.6m is donor-endowed. Excluding donor-endowed funds, the foundation could grant at the F2018 level for eight years using reserves.
