Total revenue for the year ended March 31, 2016 was $10.6 million. Spinal Cord Injury Ontario received its largest stream of funding from the provincial government. During the year, $8.2 million was received from three government bodies: the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network, the Ministry of Colleges and Universities and the Ministry of Community and Social Services.
These government grants supported the delivery of our attendant, employment, regional and information services, as well as our peer support and education programs.
Those grants were flat again this year, which made it challenging to improve programs and services with virtually no additional financial resources.
Fortunately, Spinal Cord Injury Ontario received support from donors who provided major and planned gifts during the year and who donated to various fundraising events and direct mail campaigns.
As well, Spinal Cord Injury Ontario requested and received additional grants from the Ontario Paraplegic Foundation, this year, to balance its operations.
As such, combined revenue from fundraising and the Foundation increased by 10% to $2.2 million.
