The Foundation awards grants every year through a process guided by four principles: rigour; accountability; fairness; and transparency.
A panel of unbiased experts recruited from across North America review eligible funding proposals to ensure that donor dollars will have maximum impact. Initiatives that are well-planned, highly relevant and have the potential to make a meaningful difference are recommended for funding.

Our Cost of Fundraising

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is dedicated to finding the optimal balance between dollars invested in grants and other cause-related work, and dollars spent on fundraising and other necessary expenditures. Our goal is to maximize our cause-related spending.
The Foundation ranks within the generally acceptable level as identified by the CRA with fundraising costs that measure 36%. Our fundraising costs are on par with most other organizations of the same size.

Where Our Funds Come From

The Foundation has the support of millions of Canadians across the country. With the help of our donors, partners, corporate sponsors, volunteers and staff the Foundation has raised substantial amounts for the cause.
The majority of the money raised for a future without breast cancer comes from special events such as the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. The Run for the Cure accounts for 53% of our revenues. The Foundation is also supported by corporate sponsorships, individual donations, cause related marketing and other special events.

What is a T3010?

It is the Registered Charity Information Return set out by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).Federally registered charities are regulated by the CRA because they are exempt from income tax and are able to provide tax receipts to donors so that they may obtain tax relief. To demonstrate compliance with federal tax laws, registered charities must file a Registered Charity Information Return (T3010) with the CRA each year. The T3010 and the Audited Financial Statement serve two different purposes so figures may differ between statements. The Foundation follows CRA procedures to complete the T3010
