A Culture of Innovation
A Message from Dr. Ben Neel and Dr. Mary Gospodarowicz
As one of the top 5 cancer research centres
in the world, The Princess Margaret is a
powerhouse of scientific talent and intelli-
gence. But intelligence alone will not
CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME.
So a major focus for the past two years has
been to provide our award-winning clini-
cians and scientists with a highly fertile
working environment. We call it a culture
To ensure that new insights and discoveries
about the disease do not remain behind labo-
ratory doors or in patient files, our facility has
been infused with a new collaborative spirit to
ensure that researchers and clinicians lever-
age one another’s knowledge and under-
standing. We like to think we have taken the
‘buddy system’ to a whole new level!
This year we completed a strategic planning exercise that serves as a blueprint to focus and further mobilize our team of
cancer warriors. We can’t do it all, but in our many areas of excellence, we are world-leading. Focusing on the following
themes will greatly increase our capacity to translate the science of cancer into practice.
Basic science research that leverages our access to a large patient population – capturing information and cancer
specimens from as many patients as possible in order to conduct important research that will lead to new insight and
understanding of the disease.
Image-guided therapies – developing and employing advanced medical imaging technology to allow for the precise
removal and destruction of tumours, while sparing healthy tissue.
New drugs and therapies – ensuring our patients have access to the most promising new drugs and treatments by
pioneering our own new therapies, plus investing in the people, space, and procedures needed to run clinical trials and
evaluate promising new therapies developed in other facilities.
In addition to an ambitious program of research, education, and patient care, we strive to do more. Our challenge is not
only to strive for excellence, but also to transform patient care by investigating and implementing new models of care
involving patients and their families.
To share our knowledge and experience, and to accelerate the progress in the fight against cancer, we are embarking on
new partnerships and collaborations that will benefit our patients, our communities and the world.
Thank you for your financial support of the hospital. With your continued support, we remain very optimistic that we will

In Our Lifetime
It may seem like we've been fighting this fight forever. But we haven't.
There was a time, not long ago, when cancer was a death sentence. And the treatment
was dreaded almost as much as the disease. We've seen that change in our lifetime, at
The Princess Margaret.
We've seen the entire process of cancer care forever altered. We've seen radical mastectomies
become lumpectomies. We've seen the precision of image-guided therapies spare more
healthy tissue. We've seen undreamed-of advances at the cellular level and revolutionary work
in healing beyond the body.
All in our lifetime. All at The Princess Margaret.
We've seen a provincial cancer hospital become one of the world's top 5 cancer research
centres. We've seen our people grow beyond a thousand. We've seen leading researchers,
from all over the world, leave their homes to come here. Because this is where they believe
the fight will be finished. In our lifetime.
Yes, we are still losing people to cancer. But imagine if Terry Fox were diagnosed today. He
would be much less likely to lose his leg and he could live to continue the fight. That’s how
far we’ve come, and that’s how fast.
It may seem like we'll be fighting this fight forever. But we won't. Because we're closing in.
We have the momentum. We have the talent. And we have the passion. This is the front line.
We are Canada's cancer warriors. But we can't do it alone.
The world needs to hear The Princess Margaret message. So share it at every opportunity
with anyone who will listen.
It's a simple message, really. But it's a message of incredible power: we are conquering
cancer at Canada's cancer research centre, The Princess Margaret. In our lifetime.

Our Vision. Our Passion. Our Ambition.
A Message from the President & CEO and the Chairman of the Foundation Board
Our vision, our passion, and our ambition is to CONQUER
CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME. The Princess Margaret Hospital
(PMH) is one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world,
and it has the scientific and the human capital to make this
phrase more than just words. To CONQUER CANCER IN OUR
LIFETIME is our one and only purpose, and the motivation
that drives us forward.
Every 8 minutes in Ontario, someone is diagnosed with
cancer. Globally, 7 million people died from cancer last year.
Given current statistics, nearly 40 percent of women and
45 percent of men will develop cancer in their lifetime. These
statistics are frightening, but they will not stand. The scientific
and clinical achievements at The Princess Margaret and our
new Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute will change
these statistics for Canadians and for the world.
Sadly, nearly every Canadian has a personal story about
cancer. But these stories bring us together and have created a
community of supporters that goes well beyond metropolitan
Toronto. Our ambition and our reach also go well beyond
Toronto and Canada.
Thanks to your support, a record $66.5 million in net fundraising
revenue was raised this past year and is being used to create a
Paul Alofs and Neville W. Kirchmann
tomorrow where we hope cancer can be treated as a chronic
disease. Whether you made a donation, volunteered at a fundraising event, or purchased a lottery ticket, your efforts are fund-
ing breakthrough cancer research and innovation. We are truly grateful for each and every contribution—it is the ‘power of
many’ that will finish the fight.
Major Gifts and Planned Giving raised close to $30 million this year—a record achievement. We are extremely grateful to
long-time donors, the Muzzo Family, who made a $5 million commitment to purchase and maintain a surgical robot which
will be a key component of our GTx (Guided Therapeutics) research program. We were also honoured to receive a
bequest of $3.5 million from the Estate of Edward (Ted) L. Donegan. This generous gift was recognized through the
naming of Dr. Ben Neel’s lab. PMHF Board member, Tom Ehrlich, spearheaded a successful new program called Invest
in Research. The group has committed $1 million and has already issued grants to two deserving research programs.
Other highlights include:
• $7.5 million from the late Audrey Campbell and her daughters Linda, Gaye, and Susan in support of The Campbell
Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research
• $3 million in honour of the late Al Hertz to support an urgent care unit within the new Chemotherapy Centre
• $1.5 million commitment from the Westaway Foundation to establish a Chair in Ovarian Cancer Research
• $1 million from Neville and Lorraine Kirchmann to establish the Kirchmann Family Chair in Neuro-Oncology Research
• $1 million commitment from Jim Kinnear and Bridgette Eansor to support the highest priorities of the hospital

Unfortunately, we had to say good-bye to a number of our supporters this year. Audrey Campbell was a visionary donor,
and her compassion for people will live on at the new Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute which her daughters
continue to support. We will also miss Elizabeth (Liza) Samuel, a very successful businesswoman and horse breeder. Liza

A record 5,521 walkers joined together for the fifth annual Weekend to End Breast Cancer—an amazing event that is
emotional and inspiring from beginning to end. This year $17.4 million (gross) was raised by Walkers for breast cancer
research at The Campbell Family Institute. This brings the five-year total for the Toronto event to over $60 million. Once
again we held Impact events at the hospital to give Walkers the opportunity to meet and hear from the scientists and
doctors whose research they are funding.
In fiscal 2008, we announced our newest event—The Ride to Conquer Cancer—a 200+ km two-day cycling journey from
Toronto to Niagara Falls that took place the weekend of June 20 to 22, 2008. Response to our campaign for riders was
tremendous, with registration closing much earlier than anticipated. The Ride raised a record $14 million (gross) which will
be reported in the 2009 fiscal year revenues.
Our Community Giving team continues to execute a large number of programs with great efficiency. In our Tributes and
Memorials area, we received 14,275 gifts totaling $1.4 million, and the number of partners in our Partners for Hope
monthly giving program grew by 30 percent. Our annual Dove appeal concluded this year with a very moving ceremony in
the hospital atrium where over 7,000 doves were dedicated and $540,000 in donations were gratefully acknowledged.
Once again, our Special Events department and their team of volunteers put on an incredible variety of events. Now in
its fourth year, the Mindy Kirsh Bridge for the Cure Tournament raised $94,000. The Kelly Silverstein Memorial Golf
Tournament raised over $100,000 for leukemia research, the Michelangelo Gala, organized by the Dell'Elce family, raised
$288,000 for testicular cancer research and treatment, and Joe’s Team (of 233 everyday people!) raised $400,000 in a sprint
triathlon for translational research for head and neck cancer. In total, $5.2 million was raised through the creativity and
energy of this dedicated group of participants, volunteers and donors.
We continue to benefit tremendously from the collective wisdom of a fully-engaged Board of Directors with a wealth of
business and healthcare experience. This year we are fortunate to have Tom Ehrlich, Maureen Shaughnessy Kitts and
Jürgen Schreiber join our Board, and we look forward to their ideas and counsel.
In closing, we would like to express our gratitude to the many people who take the time to share their stories. You inspire
us in the work we do here at the Foundation, and your stories inspire others to maintain the momentum in our quest to
CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME. To each and every one of our supporters, donors, and ambassadors, we owe you
our sincere thanks.

Honouring an Older Brother
Steven Hoffman had a zest for life and an unbreakable rock ‘n roll spirit
It’s not often that fundraising events for Princess Margaret Hospital are held in the Big Apple, but Robby
Hoffman wanted to celebrate the life of his brother Steven, and raise money for the hospital where Steven
received such exceptional care.
Steven was an American who built a successful career in the music business. In 1994, he moved to Toronto, Steven and Robby Hoffman
and worked with several well-known bands, including The Tea Party and Rush.
In 2001 at the age of 36, Steven (a non-smoker) was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer—a very aggressive type of cancer
that claimed his life two years later.
In May 2007 Robby organized a rock concert in New York City to pay tribute to Steven and all that he had done for the music
business. Over 500 friends, family and guests gathered at The Canal Room on West Broadway to enjoy performances by multi-
platinum recording artists Extreme and special guests Evolution and Valentine.
The concert and silent auction raised over $100,000 for the hospital’s world-class lung cancer program. The Steven Hoffman
Fellowship in Molecular Genomics has been established at The Princess Margaret, and it will fund research into this disease which
is not just a disease of smokers.

Melissa’s Generous Spirit Lives On
Arlen Katzman is motivated by the memory of his daughter Melissa every day, and much of that motivation
he directs to raising money for cancer research at The Princess Margaret.
‘Arlie’, as his friends call him, lost Melissa to cancer in 1991 when she was only 31 years old, and already
thriving in her career as the Buying Director for his sporting goods and casual apparel stores. He hates
the thought of that happening to anyone else. So, doing what he does best, he has harnessed his
highly successful retail operation to raise funds for the development and testing of new cancer drugs.
Arlie created a line of clothing named after his daughter, and $1 from the sale of every item in the
Melissa line goes to The Melissa Ann Katzman Cancer Research Fund. This initiative, combined with
special fundraising efforts during the Christmas season, has added up to over $1.7 million in donations.
Arlie is very proud of the way that every member of his staff has embraced the
fundraising drive and made it part of the value they incorporate into their store culture.

A very generous gift from the Muzzo family has launched PMH into an exciting new era of surgical oncology.
In order to make surgery less invasive and allow patients to recover more quickly, PMH surgeons are now able to use robotics
technology that allows them to perform complex surgery to remove tumours. Our expertise in guided therapeutics is being
married with technology provided through the newly-acquired da Vinci Surgical System, enabling our surgeons to sit at a

new technology may be ‘telesurgery’ where a skilled surgeon could perform
surgery on a patient thousands of kilometres away by operating the controls of
a robot in that location.

Cancer Stem Cells: Pioneering a New
Approach to Cancer
Ted Donegan—A Noble Man
In October of 2007, the Foundation celebrated the vision and generosity of Mr. Ted Donegan, the
highly-respected former chairman and managing partner of Blake Cassels & Graydon, who died of
cancer in late 2006.
The laboratory of Dr. Ben Neel, Director of The Campbell Family Institute, was named the E.L. (Ted)
Donegan Stem Cell Signaling Laboratory. In this lab, world leading scientists are studying how cancer
stem cells (believed to be the root of cancer malignancies) communicate with other cells and how
their ‘growth’ is activated.
John Phillips, a good friend of Mr. Donegan and one of the co-executors of his will, was on hand at the
naming ceremony. He commented several times that “Ted would have loved this.”
Mr. Donegan left a bequest of over $3 million to be used for cancer research at Princess Margaret
Hospital. On the invitation to the naming ceremony, the words of David Trueblood were used to
express our gratitude for this generous gift:
“It takes a noble man to plant a seed for a tree that will
someday give shade to people he may never meet.”
The idea that only the cancer stem cells within a tumour can
support the cancer leads to new ways of thinking about the
treatment and eradication of the disease. For starters, it
provides a logical explanation for why cancer so often
recurs, even when treatments such as surgery, radiation
and chemotherapy seem to shrink or eliminate tumours.
New drugs and therapies that specifically target cancer
stem cells (which appear to be quite resistant to today’s
standard therapies) are a priority.
One of the most impressive things about the cancer stem
cell research project led by Dr. Dick is the cross-institu-
tional collaboration that has been achieved. Dr. Dick’s
team of principal investigators includes top scientists from

Asbestos Workers’ Associations Support PMH Mesothelioma Research Program
Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that is almost always caused by
previous exposure to asbestos and is almost always fatal. Malignant cells develop
in the mesothelium which is a protective lining that covers most of the body’s internal
organs. The most common site is the outer lining of the lungs and chest cavity.
Thanks to the financial support of associations and unions in Ontario representing
workers who may have had asbestos exposure, Princess Margaret Hospital has
developed an extensive screening and early detection program. Almost 700 work-
ers have been screened to date. Tests that look for mesothelioma ‘markers’ in the
blood have been very helpful in finding the disease early in people at risk for the
disease. Low Dose Computer Tomography (CT) scans are also a key tool in monitoring high risk populations.
The donor support also enables researchers to investigate and test new treatments for the disease, including treatments that
take advantage of the human body’s own immune system. Recently, PMH researchers discovered that the presence of certain
immune cells called CD8+ lymphocytes are associated with a better outcome in mesothelioma patients. So techniques that can
stimulate these immune cells could become a potential treatment.

This is no ordinary Joe…he’s inspired an extraordinary team
Many of us wonder how we would react to a cancer diagnosis, and after hearing Joe Finley’s
story, most people hope they would respond with the courage and determination that he
has. This cancer survivor, diagnosed in 2004, continues to ﬁght his battle with the disease
today, and he ﬁghts with a strong conviction that cancer can be conquered.
Despite the physical and emotion toll of his ongoing treatment, Joe fulﬁlled a life-long goal
in August 2006 by completing his ﬁrst triathlon—an impressive feat for a conditioned athlete
let alone a cancer patient.
Joe is also passionate about raising funds for cancer research. In the fall of 2006, he
approached the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation with the idea of forming a triathlon
team, and Joe’s Team was created. The goal of the team—mostly ﬁrst-time triathletes—is to
achieve personal success while raising money to support head and neck translational cancer
research at PMH. Their inaugural event was held in Muskoka, Ontario in the summer of 2007.
Collectively, 233 hugely enthusiastic participants raised over $400,000.
Visit www.joesteam.ca for more information on the team, the 2008 event and an inspiring video.
Hockey the way it was meant to be played
More than 150 hockey players laced up their skates on
beautiful Sparrow Lake just north of Orillia for some old-
school 4-on-4 pond hockey in memory of Judy Taylor who
lost her battle against cancer in 2003. The three-day round
robin event raised $58,000 for sarcoma research, a rare and
aggressive type of cancer that can arise in muscles, bones,
nerves and blood vessels.
This was the third Taylor Cup Pond Hockey Championship—
a special way for hockey players to pay homage to their
Canadian roots through old-time shinny while raising money
for a good cause and remembering a good friend.
Visit www.taylorcup.ca for photos and further background.
Preparing for the Brazilian Ball
Princess Margaret Hospital was honoured to be the last beneﬁciary personally chosen by Brazilian Ball
founder Anna Maria de Souza who passed away in September 2007. Anna Maria had already chosen
PMH as the recipient for her 42nd Brazilian Ball,
and after receiving compassionate care at PMH by
an amazing nursing staff, she speciﬁcally
requested that the nurses be honoured at the Ball
and beneﬁt from the funds raised.
The amazing trio, Shirley Domelle, Holly Miklas,
and Martha Shaw, agreed to serve as the co-chairs of the event.
Wanting to ensure that Anna Maria would be proud, they worked
tirelessly to make the 2008 Ball the best ever.
The 2008 Ball is also fortunate to have two generous couples serving
as Honourary Chairs. Jim and Bridgette Kinnear made a $1 million
donation to support the highest priorities of the hospital, and Neville
and Lorraine Kirchmann made a $1 million gift to establish the
Kirchmann Family Chair in Neuro-Oncology Research.
16 2008 Report to Our Donors
Ticket buyers come out to hear how PMH uses lottery funds
“The funding received from the lotteries is critically impor-
tant to the cancer research taking place at The Princess
Margaret.” These were the words from the Director of
Research at PMH, Dr. Ben Neel, at a Saturday event held in
the hospital to thank lottery ticket purchasers and to pro-
vide insight on the research that the lotteries are enabling.
Dr. Jonathan Irish, Chief of Surgical Oncology at Princess
Margaret Hospital, showed the attendees how exciting
advances in image-guided technology and robotics are
starting to be employed in cancer surgery for greater preci-
sion and quicker recovery.
Since 1996 when the PMH lotteries were ﬁrst launched,
almost $170 million has been raised in undesignated fund-
ing. While all funds received are important and put to
excellent use, ‘undesignated’ funding is essential, as it can
be used for the highest priorities of the research centre.
“Often,” says Dr. Neel, “the funds are used to buy new
leading edge equipment, but just as often they are used to
pay salaries for our graduate students who keep critical
tests and experiments running at all hours.”
Ride to Conquer Cancer—is on the mark!
The Foundation is always investigating and considering new fundraising opportunities, and one that has been in the plan-
ning stages for over two years is The Ride to Conquer Cancer. The ﬁrst annual two-day Ride took place on June 21-22,
2008 starting out at Toronto’s Exhibition grounds and ﬁnishing up over 200 km later in spectacular Niagara Falls.
Registration for the Ride closed well ahead of schedule and 2,850 riders completed the two-day trek. Riders came
together from 16 U.S. states and eight provinces to raise funds for The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess
Margaret! The Ride will make a signif-
icant contribution to the 2009
fundraising total for the Foundation
thanks to the enthusiastic effort of the
riders, crew, volunteers, sponsors, and
Special thanks go to Swiss Chalet who
signed up early as the presenting spon-
sor and promoted the Ride extensively.
There was tremendous support from
hospital staff—over 100 University
Health Network employees partici-
pated in the event. Hundreds of other
doctors, researchers, nurses and sup-
port staff lent support to the Ride
promotion activities and made gener-
ous donations in support of riders. To
register for the 2009 Ride, visit

Dove Campaign—Spreading Hope
The Foundation’s very successful and inspiring Dove Campaign is now
entering its eighth year, and each year it is harder to tell who is more
inspired—the donors who respond to the Dove package or the
Foundation staff who receive the Dove dedications returned by mail
or posted on our Web site.
This campaign is about hope—something hard to find if you just read
the daily headlines related to cancer. “But if you read stories about
people who have been treated for cancer at PMH, you can’t help but be
inspired by their courage and by their deep appreciation for the outstanding care they have received,” says Lynn
Douglas, Vice President of Community Giving.

JCB Grant Society
Membership in the JCB Grant Society is offered to donors who have included The Princess Margaret Hospital Founda-
tion in their will or have made a future or life income gift. These special friends of the Foundation have made the fight to
conquer cancer part of their own personal legacy.
The JCB Grant Society is named after the distinguished Toronto professor of anatomy, Dr. J.C. Boileau Grant, the author
of Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy. Princess Margaret Hospital has a special connection with Dr. Grant. His widow, Anne Catriona
Robertson, left us a bequest of the Atlas when she died in 1982. With the annual royalty payments, The Princess Margaret
Hospital Foundation has created the JCB Grant Chair in Oncologic Pathology, a $2.2 million endowed chair, as well as a
major named endowment fund.
The Grant family’s example is important to us: they have left an important legacy with a creative gift, and they have
improved our ability to conduct leading-edge cancer research. Through the JCB Grant Society, we pay tribute both to
the Grant family and to each donor who has confirmed a planned gift to The Princess Margaret.

Ida Rubinoff—Quintessential Lover of Life
Ida Rubinoff was treated for leukemia at The Princess Margaret for more
than two years. Very soon after becoming a patient, Ida learned that not all
treatment-related costs are covered by provincial health plans, and she saw
that many of her fellow patients needed help to pay for everything from
prescription drugs to cab fare to the hospital.
To help meet this need, Ida and her husband, Phil, made a gift of $25,000
to establish the Ida Rubinoff Patient Support Fund. With generous support
from family, friends and business colleagues, the fund grew past their initial
goal of $250,000 and is now heading toward their revised goal of $500,000.
Sadly, Ida passed away in June of 2007 at age 71. But she had been
inspired by reports from hospital staff about the difference her fund was
making in the lives of her fellow patients and left a further bequest to the
fund in her will. Ida and Phil made a difference and hope that others will do

March 31, 2008
The accompanying financial statements of The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation were prepared by management in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
Management is responsible for the integrity and objectivity of the financial statements and has established systems of
internal control which are designed to provide reasonable assurance that assets are safeguarded from loss or unauthorized
use and to produce reliable accounting records for the preparation of financial information.
The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that management fulfills its responsibility for financial reporting and
internal control. The Board exercises its responsibilities through the Investment Committee, composed of members of
the Board, who meet regularly with representatives of management and with the external investment managers and
consultants, to monitor the performance of the investment portfolio. The Audit & Accountability Committee comprised
of members of the Board and the community, meets regularly with management to monitor the financial activity of the
Foundation together with the functioning of the accounting and control systems. This Committee also meets with
management and the external auditors to review the results of the auditing activity.
The external auditors have conducted an independent audit, in accordance with generally accepted standards, and have
expressed their opinions on the financial statements. Their report outlines the nature of their audit and their opinion on
the fairness of the financial statements of The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation and the accounting principles fol-
lowed in management’s preparation thereof.

42 2008 Report to Our Donors
To the Members of
The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation
We have audited the balance sheet of The Princess Margaret Hospital
Foundation as at March 31, 2008 and the statement of revenue, expenses and
changes in fund balances for the year then ended. These financial statements are
the responsibility of the Foundation's management. Our responsibility is to
express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing
standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain
reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free of material
misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting
the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes
assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by
management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.
In our opinion, these financial statements present fairly, in all material respects,
the financial position of the Foundation as at March 31, 2008 and the results of its
operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian
generally accepted accounting principles. As required by the Canada
Corporations Act, we report that, in our opinion, these principles have been
applied, on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

1. PURPOSE OF THE ORGANIZATION
The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation [the "Foundation"] is incorporated under the Canada
Corporations Act. The Foundation was established to solicit, receive and maintain funds and to
apply these funds to improve and enhance cancer research, professional education and patient care
activities provided by the Ontario Cancer Institute/Princess Margaret Hospital ["OCI/PMH"],
which are part of the University Health Network ["UHN"].
The Foundation is a public foundation registered under the Income Tax Act (Canada) [the "Act"]
and, as such, is exempt from income taxes and able to issue donation receipts for income tax
purposes, under Registration Number 88900 7597 RR 0001. In order to maintain its status as a
public foundation registered under the Act, the Foundation must meet certain requirements within
the Act. In the opinion of management, these requirements have been met.
2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The financial statements of the Foundation have been prepared in accordance with Canadian
generally accepted accounting principles. The following summary of significant accounting
policies is set forth to facilitate the understanding of these financial statements:
In order to ensure observance of the limitations and restrictions placed on the use of resources
available to the Foundation, the accounts of the Foundation are maintained in accordance with the
principles of fund accounting. Accordingly, resources are classified for accounting and reporting
purposes into funds. These funds are held in accordance with the objectives specified by the
donors or in accordance with directives issued by the Board of Directors [the "Board"]. Transfers
between the funds are made when it is considered appropriate and authorized by the Board. To
meet these objectives of financial reporting and stewardship over assets, certain interfund transfers
are necessary to ensure the appropriate allocation of assets and liabilities to the respective funds.
These interfund transfers are recorded in the statement of revenue, expenses and changes in fund
For financial reporting purposes, the accounts have been classified into the following funds:
[a] General Fund
The General Fund accounts for the Foundation's general fundraising, granting and
administrative activities. The General Fund reports unrestricted resources available for

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2008
[b] Restricted Fund
The Restricted Fund includes those funds where resources are to be used for an identified
purpose as specified by the donor, as stipulated by the fundraising appeal or as determined by
[c] Endowment Fund
The Endowment Fund includes those funds where either donor or internal restrictions require
that the principal be maintained by the Foundation on a permanent basis.
Investments and investment income
The investments of the Foundation are recorded at market value. Publicly traded securities are
valued based on the latest bid prices and pooled funds are valued based on reported unit values.
Short-term securities are valued based on cost plus accrued income, which approximates fair
value. Investments that are not publicly traded are valued based on the latest valuations provided
by external investment managers. Transactions are recorded on a settlement date basis and
transaction costs are expensed as incurred. Investment income, which consists of dividends,
interest, income distribution from pooled funds, realized and unrealized gains and losses, is
recorded as revenue in the statement of revenue and expenses.
Investment income earned on Endowment Fund or Restricted Fund resources that must be spent
on donor-restricted activities is recognized as revenue of the Restricted Fund. Investment income
subject to donor restrictions stipulating that it be added to the principal amount of the endowment
is recognized as revenue of the Endowment Fund. Unrestricted investment income earned on
Endowment Fund, Restricted Fund and General Fund resources is recognized as revenue of the
Translation of foreign currencies
The cost of investments, revenue and expenses denominated in foreign currencies are translated
into Canadian dollars at the transaction date. The market value of investments and other monetary
items denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the year-end rate.
Donations are recorded on a cash basis since pledges are not legally enforceable claims.
Donor-restricted donations for endowment purposes are recognized as revenue in the Endowment
Fund. Other donor-restricted donations are recognized as revenue of the Restricted Fund.
Unrestricted donations are recognized as revenue of the General Fund.
The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2008
Lottery revenue, Weekend to End Breast Cancer revenue and other events are recognized net of all
related expenses in the fiscal year in which the program is concluded. Revenue and expenses
related to lotteries for which prize draws take place and events that take place subsequent to the
year-end are deferred.
Grants are recognized when payable.
Contributed goods and services
Contributed capital assets that are transferred to UHN are recognized at their fair market value in
the financial statements. Other contributed goods and services are not recognized.
Purchased capital assets are recorded at cost less accumulated amortization. Donated capital
assets are recorded at fair value at the date of contribution.
Amortization is provided on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets as
Office equipment 10 years
Computer hardware and software 3 years
The Foundation is subject to market, currency and interest rate price risks with respect to its
investments. To manage these risks, the Foundation has established a target mix of investment
types designated to achieve the optimum return with reasonable risk tolerance.
Employee future benefit plans
The Foundation participates in a multi-employer defined benefit pension plan and a non-pension
defined benefit plan sponsored by UHN. Contributions to these plans are expensed when due.
Use of estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Canadian generally accepted
accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the
reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at
the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the
reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Change in accounting policies
Effective April 1, 2007, the Foundation adopted the recommendations of CICA 3855: Financial
Instruments – Recognition and Measurement and CICA 3861: Financial Instruments – Disclosure
and Presentation. CICA 3855 establishes standards for recognizing and measuring financial
instruments, including the accounting treatment for changes in fair value. As required by CICA
3855 and consistent with the accounting policy for investments used to prepare the prior year's
financial statements, investments continue to be presented at fair value. As permitted by CICA
3855, the Foundation's other financial assets and liabilities continue to be presented at amortized
cost which approximates fair value. The adoption of CICA 3855 and 3861 did not have a
significant impact on the financial statements in the prior or current year.
Future changes in accounting policies
The CICA has issued two new standards, CICA 3862: Financial Instruments – Disclosures and
CICA 3863: Financial Instruments – Presentation, which enhance the abilities of users of
financial statements to evaluate the significance of financial instruments to an entity, related
exposures and the management of these risks.
The CICA has also issued a new accounting standard, CICA 1535: Capital Disclosures, which
requires the disclosure of qualitative and quantitative information that enables users of financial
statements to evaluate the entity's objectives, policies and processes for managing capital.
These changes in accounting policies, which will be adopted effective April 1, 2008, will only
require additional disclosures in the financial statements.
Cash consists primarily of amounts held for the Restricted Fund and net funds received in advance
related to lotteries and events to be held during the next fiscal year.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2008
[b] Investment income is allocated among the funds based on the Foundation's capital
preservation policy. This policy has the objective of protecting the real value of the
endowments by limiting the amount of earned income available for spending and requiring
the reinvestment of any income earned in excess of this limit. This preservation of capital is
recorded as revenue of the Endowment Fund for externally endowed funds. For internally
endowed funds, the preservation of capital is recorded as income of the General Fund and
transferred to the Endowment Fund in the statement of revenue, expenses and changes in fund
balances. In any year, should net investment income not be sufficient to fund the amount
required for spending, the amount that is to be made available for spending is funded by
accumulated reinvested income. However for individual funds without sufficient reinvested
income, endowment capital is transferred to the Restricted Fund for this purpose. This
amount is expected to be recovered by future net investment income.
Currently, the income available for spending is set at 5% of the market value of the
Endowment Fund balances. An additional 1% is recorded in the General Fund to cover
Investment income recorded in the Restricted Fund represents income earned on endowments
where the donor has stipulated that the income must be used for restricted purposes or where
there are agreements requiring income to be allocated to restricted funds.
[c] Gains and losses arising from the sale of donated investments that fund specific endowed or
restricted funds are recorded in these funds.
[d] In 2008, investments held for endowments incurred an investment loss of $415. As a result,
no investment income was available for preservation of capital, to make available for
spending or to cover administrative costs. With respect to externally endowed funds, the
funds available for spending of $4,555 were transferred from the Endowment Fund to the
Restricted Fund and the amount available to cover administrative costs of $910 was
transferred from the Endowment Fund to the General Fund. With respect to internally
endowed funds, the shortfall of funds available for spending of $810 was transferred from the
Endowment Fund to the Restricted Fund and the amount available to cover administrative
costs of $233 was transferred from the Endowment Fund to the General Fund.
In 2007, investment income of $3,559 was earned on investments held for endowments. An
amount of $984 was recorded as General Fund revenue to cover administrative costs. No
investment income was available for preservation of capital of endowments and there was a
shortfall in the amount available for spending. With respect to externally endowed funds, the
amount available for spending of $2,179 was recorded as Restricted Fund revenue and the
shortfall of $2,004 was transferred from the Endowment Fund to the Restricted Fund. With
respect to internally endowed funds, income of $421 was recorded as General Fund revenue
and transferred to the Restricted Fund. The shortfall of funds available for spending of $347
was recorded as a transfer from the Endowment Fund to the Restricted Fund.

Change in Leadership
Neville Kirchmann, who has served The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation
in many capacities, will complete a two-year term as Chairman of the Board on
October 2, 2008.
Mr. Kirchmann’s relationship with the Foundation is a unique and significant
one. It began when he joined the Board of Directors in 1996. In 1999 he was
asked to run the Foundation for a three-month interim period which turned
into four years. Mr. Kirchmann had previously been president and CEO of
Coca-Cola Beverages, and the Foundation took full advantage of his strong
During his tenure at the Foundation, the very successful lottery program
expanded from one to two lotteries, the Weekend to End Breast Cancer was
launched, and there was effective clarification on governance and the different
roles of the board and foundation management.
Mr. Kirchmann has also been a generous donor and personal supporter of the
hospital. His gifts have led to the creation of The Edith Kirchmann Fellowship
in Psychosocial Oncology in honour of his late first wife, and the Kirchmann
Family Chair in Neuro-Oncology Research.
Both Mr. Kirchmann’s physical endurance and his fundraising talents were most
recently showcased as he rode 200km in the inaugural Ride to Conquer Cancer
leading a team that raised over $44,000.
Mr. Kirchmann’s successor is Keith Ambachtsheer who joined the Board in
November of 2001, and has served as Chair of the Investment Committee.
Mr. Ambachtsheer is President of KPA Advisory Services, and a global
thought-leader in the pensions and investment field. He is the author of three
books, and has received a number of awards recognizing his professional
contributions to the field in Canada, the USA, and Europe. Most recently, he
received the CFA Institute’s prestigious James R. Vertin Award for his research
contributions “notable for their relevance and enduring value to the invest-
ment profession”. He has also received the University of Toronto Arbor Award
for volunteer service in founding the International Centre for Pension
Management at the Rotman School of Management. He is a past President of
the Association of Canadian Pension Management, and has served on a
number of boards of directors in both the for-profit and volunteer sectors.
The Foundation looks forward to a continuation of strong board leadership

The Foundation wishes to thank Kevin Sullivan who has completed his term on the Board. Kevin contributed his many
talents and considerable financial support on behalf of the Foundation in a wide variety of ways, most recently leading a
team that raised over $370,000 in the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Kevin and his wife Sandra established the Kevin & Sandra
Sullivan Chair in Surgical Oncology at The Princess Margaret with a generous donation of $1 million. Fortunately, the
Foundation will continue to benefit from Kevin’s leadership and energy. He and Sandra have agreed to be the honourary
co-chairs of the 2009 Ride to Conquer Cancer.
