About Operation Smile:
Operation Smile Canada Foundation (OSCF) is the Canadian member of the global Operation Smile Inc. that began in 1982. Its vision is to allow all children to live with dignity. OSCF raises funds in Canada. All its grants of $7.2m go to Operation Smile Inc., its parent charity in the US. Operation Smile Inc. conducts health care examinations and does surgery repairs on children with facial deformities in developing countries. Operation Smile Inc. has 29 care centers in 19 countries. Donations to OSCF, the Canadian charity, also fund medical training, education and awareness programs.
Operation Smile Canada reports that 1 in 700 children will have facial deformities. Operation Smile doctors go on regular missions to many developing countries. In F2016, Operation Smile conducted 166 medical missions, built 16 new medical sites, and built 6 new care centers. To date, Operation Smile has performed 220,000 surgeries.
Operation Smile states that in a survey of its trainees, its training sessions changed how 96% of the trainees responded to an emergency situation, and 84% of the trainees saved at least one life as a result of their new-found knowledge.
Operation Smile Canada is a big-cap charity, receiving donations of $9.2m in F2016. Administrative costs are 5% of revenues and fundraising costs are 67% of donations. For every dollar donated, 28 cents go towards Operation Smile’s programs, falling well outside Ci’s reasonable range. OSCF received $4.9m from its US parent in F2016 to pay for fundraising costs, and OSCF remits to the US parent $7.2m in grants, for a net flow of $2.2m of the $9.2m in donations going to the US for programs. OSCF has total funding reserves of $759k, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 11%. This means that OSCF can cover just over one month of its annual program costs using its reserves, showing a need for funding.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by Operation Smile Canada Foundation. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
