About Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation:
The Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation (DHBM) raises funds to support the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre and its affiliate cancer programs throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. The funds are used to support four areas: enhancing regional programs close to patients' homes, supporting education and research projects, funding patient support programs and services, and acquiring cancer treatment equipment. All contributions to DHBM remain within the province. In F2014 disbursements totalled $1.2m, with over $800k granted to the Capital Fund – Eastern Regional Health Authority.
The Campaign for Cancer Care, which ended in 2010, raised $3.6m, a portion of which was used to purchase two 4-Dimensional CT Simulators for the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre. These simulators are used for most patients who must undergo radiation treatment.
DHBM also operates a Patient and Family Support Fund that assists over 400 cancer patients and their families in dealing with the financial burdens of their cancer diagnosis each year.
In F2014 DHBM's administrative costs were 23% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 15% of donations. DHBM has funding reserves of $1.5m, of which 79% are donor-endowed funds. Non-donor-endowed funding reserves cover 24% of annual program costs and disbursements.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to the charity for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
