About Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan:
Founded in 1983, Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan (RMHS) offers housing services to families of children travelling to receive medical treatment at hospitals in Saskatoon. The charity is formally known as Friends of Saskatchewan Children and it opened its House in 1985. RMHS runs one of the 15 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada – all of the Houses are for families of children who must travel to receive medical treatment. The RMHS House is within walking distance to Royal University Hospital and Saskatoon Cancer Clinic. RMHS also accommodates families of children receiving treatment at Saskatoon City Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital, and Kinsmen Children’s Centre.
Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan expanded its 13-guest-room house in 2014 to 43,000 square feet and it now can house up to 34 families. Occupancy rates have increased from 57% in 2015 to 82% in 2017, and the House serves nearly 1500 families annually. RMHS charges families $10 per night at the House.
In September 2016, Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan opened its first Ronald McDonald House Family Room in the Prince Albert Victoria Hospital PEDS Unit in a partnership with Prince Albert Parkland Health Region. By the end of 2017, the room supported 717 families who have together made 8,907 visits.
Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan is a Medium-sized charity with total donations and special events revenues of $2.5m in 2017, down from $3.2m in 2016. Administrative costs are 12% of revenues and fundraising costs are 7% of donations (excluding grants from Ronald McDonald House Charities of $243k). For every dollar donated, 80 cents go to the cause, falling within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.
RMHS holds funding reserves of $6.8m, which can cover annual program costs for 5.5 years. This coverage indicates a lack of funding need. While funding reserves have risen by 38% since 2015, program costs have risen faster due to the new Family Room. Overall, this has caused the program cost coverage ratio to fall from 6.6 years to 5.5 years since 2015.
