About Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre:
Founded in 1979, Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre (CCAC) works with children from poor families in Toronto by giving music and art lessons. The charity works with kids from St. James Town, Regent Park and surrounding areas. Through its music and art lessons, CCAC aims to enrich the lives of children by instilling character, discipline and skill.
Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre reports that over 300 kids take part in its programs, of which roughly 70% come from poor families. CCAC subsidizes the costs of its programs on a sliding scale to ensure children from all income levels can participate. CCAC offers music and art lessons, in both individual and group settings, every day of the week. The charity also runs a summer camp in July.
Children at CCAC take part in music recitals, theatre performances, art shows and local events. Such activities promote family and community pride. By active participation, children develop confidence, skills and a sense of hope.
Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre is a micro-cap charity with total donations and special events fundraising of $104k in F2015. Administrative costs are 26% of revenues and fundraising costs are 21% of donations and fundraising revenues. Per dollar donated to the charity, $0.53 goes towards its programs, which falls outside Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. In F2015, CCAC held debt of $8k with no cash on-hand. This produces a negative program cost coverage ratio – the charity does not hold sufficient funding reserves to cover its annual program costs. There is a large funding need.
