About Covenant Foundation:
In 1994, Edmonton General Hospital, Grey Nuns Hospital and Misericordia Hospital merged into one health group, the Caritas Health Group. At the same time, the independent hospital foundations serving each of the hospitals began operating together as the Caritas Foundation. In April 2016, the Foundation was renamed to Covenant Foundation and is now the fundraising arm for 15 healthcare facilities across Alberta. This change was made to increase fundraising capacity, leverage resources, improve priority alignment, and reduce duplication.
Covenant Foundation funds capital equipment, programs, projects, and services related to acute and continuing care. In F2015, Covenant Foundation made $5.1 million in grants to the three hospitals.
Covenant Foundation reports that its priority campaigns in F2015 included a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for the Misericordia Community Hospital, and a Palliative Care Institute for the Grey Nuns Community Hospital. As of the date this report was written, Covenant Foundation had not yet published its F2016 annual report.
Covenant Foundation is a medium-sized charity with $2.5m in donations and special events fundraising in F2016. Administrative costs were 50% of revenues and fundraising costs were 13% of donations. For every $1 donated, 37 cents went to the cause. This falls outside of Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range for overhead spending.
The Foundation has funding reserves of $38.0m, including $8.1 in donor-endowed funds. Excluding donor-endowed funds, Covenant Foundation can cover annual grants 15.1 times.
This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by Covenant Foundation. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
