About Colon Cancer Canada:

Colon Cancer Canada (CCC), established in 1996, is a national organization dedicated to saving lives through increasing public awareness of colorectal cancer and access to screening, funding research initiatives, and providing colorectal cancer patient support.

Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer for both Canadian men and women, yet it is significantly underfunded relative to other types of cancer.

CCC's efforts to date have focused on establishing fellowships and research chairs, financing hospital equipment, providing financial support to patient support services and increasing awareness about the necessity of early screening. In F2014 CCC spent 30% of its program costs on research grants, 37% on public awareness and 33% on other activities.

Financial Review:

Administrative costs in F2014 were 17% of revenues and fundraising costs were 24% of donations.  Funding reserves of $746k cover 1 year of program costs.
