About Shelterbox Canada:
ShelterBox Canada (SBC) is the Canadian affiliate of ShelterBox Trust, an international charity based in the United Kingdom that provides disaster relief. It provides shelter, warmth and basic supplies to support the communities affected by natural disasters. The Canadian branch is mainly responsible for raising funds for the UK-based charity and creating awareness of the disasters. When a disaster strikes, ShelterBox sends teams to work with local and international authorities to provide immediate relief.
The boxes distributed by the teams contain basic supplies like tents, cooking supplies and blankets. SBC can customize each box according to the needs of the people. SBC has assisted in providing relief efforts to many countries, including the Philippines, Mexico and Nepal. In F2016, Shelterbox responded to 13 disasters and helped a total of 29,300 families, exceeding its target of 21,000. Shelterbox aims to help 30,000 families in F2017. To date, it has responded to over 285 disasters in over 100 countries.
Shelterbox Canada is a medium-sized charity with donations of $1.2m in F2016. Its administrative costs were 5% of total revenues and its fundraising costs were 4% of donations. For every dollar donated, 91 cents go towards SBC’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. SBC has funding reserves of $1.3m, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 114%. This means that SBC can cover 1.1 years of annual program costs using its existing funding reserves.
