About Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation:

Founded in 1983, Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation’s mission is to “raise funds to support excellence and innovation in the work of Saskatoon City Hospital with its patients and communities that it serves.” Its three main focuses are new equipment (95% of F2016 program costs), professional development (3%), and research (2%). The charity notes that the amount spent on professional development and research have not changed significantly from F2015 to F2016, however a significant gift from an anonymous donor enabled the Foundation to allocate a larger than average percentage of spending to equipment in F2016.

In F2016, Saskatoon City Hospital had 132,300 patient visits, 70,000 outpatient procedures, 18,000 day surgeries, 18,000 emergency visits, 7,800 scoping procedures, 6,500 eye care procedures, 6,500 medical imaging visits, and 5,500 inpatient stays.

Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation supported the hospital by providing $2.3 million in funding in F2016. This funding went towards: Surgery, Pathology Lab, Rehab, Nursing Education, Women’s Health, Geriatric Evaluation, Post-Anesthetic Care Unit, Emergency, Pharmacy, Eye Care Centre, Medical Library, Breast Health Centre, Convalescent Unit, and the Cameco MS Neuroscience Research Centre. Since 2013, the Foundation has enabled the Hospital to purchase, amoung other things, a 3D mammography unit, an endoscopic ultrasound, a point-of-care ultrasound in the emergency department, a vein viewer, and a $2 million upgrade and modernization of the Surgical Pathology Lab.

Financial Review:

Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation is a medium-sized charity with donations and special events revenue of $4.3m in F2016. Its administrative costs are 9% of revenues and its fundraising costs are 7% of donations. For every dollar donated, 84 cents go towards the Foundation’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. The Foundation has $13.2m in total funding reserves, of which $4.7m is donor-endowed. This results in a program cost coverage ratio excluding donor-endowed funds of 313%, meaning that the charity can cover 3.1 years of its annual program costs using its existing reserves at F2016 granting levels, or 7 years using the average spending over the past three years. However, these reserves may be inflated as Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation had multiple large projects underway during that period which required the accumulation of more funds than usual.

This charity profile is an update currently under review by Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation.
