Thanks to our very generous donors, the Canadian
Cancer Society makes the most impact against
cancer in communities in British Columbia and
Yukon and across Canada.
This year we raised over $35 Million in British Columbia
and the Yukon.
Our fundraising efforts allowed us to direct $23 million to fund important research, Prevention and
support programs across British Columbia
This is a $3 million or 15% increase from last year
We were able to invest additional funds for the Canadian Cancer Sodiety Research Institute
(CCSRI) grants, the nationwide Prevention
strategy and the Cancer Prevention Centre (CPC).
We also welcomed our first clients into our newest lodge —the Koryban Lodge in Prince George BC
Many of our donors ask us how much we spend on fundraising.
In 2013/14, we invested $7.19 million directly in our fundraising activities such as Relay For Life Cops for Cancer, our Daffodil Campaign and Planned and
Major Giving. We also spent
$3.95 million in supporting fundraising costs to ensure good management, financial, humanresources and information Technology systems
We make careful decisions about how
much we need to spend on fundraising and administrative costs in order to produce the
maximum amount of revenue
and make the most impact with our donor dollars.
This resulted in a total fundraising revenue of over $29 million and the cost to raise a dollar was 37 cents
