TB Vets is proud to report that in 2018-19 the Foundation’s cost per dollar was 23 cents (excluding community awareness and public engagement), which is lower than the industry average of 25 cents.
Thanks to our donors, our 2018-19 consolidated revenue, including investments, totalled $1,593,773. Together with our donors and supporters, we have made a direct and significant impact on health care in our province.
The following financial highlights are based on TB Vets Foundation’s audited financial statements for our fiscal year ending September 30, 2019.
TB Recreation Therapy
Recreation Therapy is important in maintaining the social, emotional and cognitive wellness of patients struggling with serious health conditions. TB Vets recognizes the need for meaningful leisure of TB patients; They are commonly isolated for months on end, unable to do their usual routine and spend time outside with loved ones. With the help of donors, TB Vets is able to support the TB Unit at Vancouver General Hospital.
