Financials and reports
By investing in the Hospital’s most urgent needs and long-term priorities, we make sure that every day, your generous donations make a life-changing difference for Stollery kids and their families.
We establish our funding priorities each year based on the priority needs identified by our expanding Stollery network of care. Our Foundation works hard to keep fundraising and administrative costs low to make sure the maximum of every donor dollar goes to world-class physical and mental health care for children in Western Canada when they need it most.
Where our donor dollars came from in 2022-23
Lotteries – 40%
Albertans stepped up in a MIGHTY way by buying tickets in both our Spring and Fall lotteries! Net proceeds from these lotteries support cutting-edge pediatric research and the purchase of highly specialized equipment at the Stollery.
Events and community fundraising – 19%
Each year, our special events create the kinds of memorable opportunities that our donors deserve. By attending our events, donating auction items, providing sponsorships and donating at our events, our supporters make it possible for us to give kids the best chance to live a long and healthy life. Also, community fundraisers organize more than 800 events each year to benefit the Stollery — an incredible testament to our community’s passion and support for the Stollery’s network of care.
National and corporate partnerships – 19%
Our local and national fundraising partners do incredible work to raise money for children’s health, whether it be through employee giving, cause-related marketing or in-store promotions.
Personal giving – 13%
Personal giving supports the Stollery Children’s Hospital’s programs and areas where it is needed most. We are inspired by our donors making personal gifts as it enables individuals to contribute their resources, expertise and passion to the Stollery.
Annual support and other – 9%
We use direct mail campaigns and annual appeals like Corus Radiothon to communicate with our donors on a regular basis about pressing needs at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Donations from these campaigns and appeals often go towards undesignated funds that have a direct impact on children’s health and give us the flexibility to meet the Stollery network of care’s most urgent needs.
As of March 31, 2023, we are holding $51 million in funds for the Stollery Children’s Hospital, Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta that we have committed to four funding priorities for kids’ physical and mental health: equipment and facilities, programs, training and research.
