Impact of COVID-19 on Cystic Fibrosis Canada
The impact of COVID-19 has been felt across the country, especially in the cystic fibrosis community.
Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic is also having a significant impact on our financial situation. Like most other charities, we are expecting a decline in revenue of 40-60% this year.
At a time when the cystic fibrosis community needs us more than ever, this is a hard truth to face.
To ensure that we can be here for our community for the long term, we must make decisions that preserve our financial health. To do this, we are making reductions in spending in our operations and programs. In the meantime, we will seek ways to mitigate the impact on the community and build bridges to the future.
The COVID-19 pandemic will pass, and Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s funding will return to more traditional levels in the future. When it does, we will be ready to fully embrace the direction outlined in our new, three-year strategic plan.
To our donors and supporters, we thank you for your continued support. The community needs you now more than ever, and we are grateful for your steadfast dedication.
Over the past 60 years, we have made incredible progress in improving the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. We remain dedicated to our shared vision of a world without cystic fibrosis.
