between friends
annual report 2011
Between Friends creates opportunities for people
with disabilities to connect, grow, and belong
through social and recreational activities.
from
the
chair
Gerry David
Board Chair
Stability. Not a bad thing. With all the talk in the
past 20 years of growth in areas such as investments,
real estate markets, and debt loads, stability in our
organization is a good thing, especially in the face of
the current economy.
Stable membership - we’ve had a wonderfully stable
membership base for several years now. This allows
us to plan the year with more ease and draw on past
years experiences for support.
Stable staff - while it is difficult in an oil and gas
town to keep staff away from the lure of the “big
money,” we had an incredible fifty percent return rate
of camp staff. This is great for our above mentioned
stable membership, as they see the same friendly
faces greeting them when they arrive at camp.
Stable funding - the same “big money” that creates
staffing challenges is also a blessing. Stable funding
from some great sources keeps us operating. For the
first time in our history, we were able to ink multiyear commitments from corporate Calgary. Our
thanks to Cenovus and Newalta for placing their trust
in us, and for recognizing the great work that we do.
Stable funding from the United Way also calms the
financial waters. Additionally, a golf tournament run
by a dedicated committee of volunteers, that just
won’t give up, along with Friends in Motion, now in its
19th year, helps to round out the picture.
2
And while we fight the economy with a loss on our
books, we are still here, still strong, and still loving
what we do. What more can you ask for?
This upcoming year will see more of the same
stability, with some change thrown in to keep us
all busy. You will notice some new branding - a
fresh and memorable look to keep us as fresh and
memorable as our members; a board that currently
sits with over 30 years of combined service to
Between Friends, and believes in the organization and
the cause; a core group of volunteers that give their
time, effort, and heart to make this organization that
much better; and, of course, a core staff that enjoy
their jobs, their co-workers, and are with us because
they truly enjoy being part of Between Friends.
While a little more stability on the funding side
wouldn’t hurt and would help me sleep a little better,
I must consider, “What am I thankful for most as I
enter my third year as chair?” I can truly say that I am
thankful for all of these wonderful people. They are
what the organization is about, and the reason that
most of us return year after year. Thank you.

annual report 2011
from
the
ceo
Suzanne Jackett
CEO
In 2011, Between Friends’ focus was centered on our
communication channels and reach in the community.
The organization began a rebranding process which
took much of the year to plan, with implementation
slated for early 2012.
Change is exciting. With a new identity comes the
opportunity for Between Friends to rejuvenate and
revitalize our brand while maintaining our core values
and purpose. It has provided us with the opportunity
to look at our proud past, to consider where we have
come from, to analyze our current circumstances and
to make exciting plans for the future.
As our 30th Anniversary approaches it causes me
to ask, “What is the dream?” For me, the long-term
dream is to work myself out of a job. Imagine a
society that is responsive to needs and equipped with
the skills and expertise required to be accepting and
accommodate everyone in social and recreational
activities, regardless of their “special” need, ability
or disability. That is my dream. Will I see it in my
lifetime? I hope so. It is after all, what I work toward
every day.
The Genesis Centre of Community Wellness opened
in January and Between Friends is proud to be a
partner in providing quality recreation and social
opportunities through the centre and the human
resource area called 1000 Villages. The Genesis
Centre is a 225,000 square foot, $120 million multipurpose complex built to enrich the health, wellness,
and unity of communities in Northeast Calgary. It
is our plan to strengthen our programming in this
quadrant of the city to better meet the needs of those
community members living with disabilities.
We could not do this very important work without
the support of many. To our programming partners,
funders, donors, sponsors, staff, volunteers, advisors,
board of directors, families and our members, I
express my deepest gratitude. It is with excitement
and anticipation that I look forward to 2012 when
Between Friends turns thirty. When we have the
opportunity to celebrate where we have come from
and what we have accomplished, and we look forward
to the very exciting future ahead of us.
Suzanne
We began to forge many partnerships on the road to
this dream. We are working in partnership with many
other recreation service providers (both disability
specific and community based) to make things better
and easier for all members.

impacting lives
As a parent, for many years, I felt
Alacia’s loneliness when she attended
summer day camp. However, for the
past two summers, Alacia has enjoyed
her peers immensely at the I.C.A.N!
Camp supported by Between Friends
and the Shawnessy YMCA.
Why did I choose an integrated
camp for Alacia, when she attends a
segregated school setting? I feel that
integration benefits Alacia’s overall
development, especially her self
confidence. Every day Alacia attended
the camp, she became very excited as
soon as she entered the YMCA.
The Between Friends staff paved
the way by educating the children
in the camp about Alacia and her
many abilities. The staff worked with
the typical children to find ways
Alacia could participate in the camp
programs. As a result, Alacia was
totally accepted as her own unique
person, and always felt that she
belonged.

Between Friends has bettered
my life. Their organization has
shown me the sense of purpose
and achievement that volunteerism
rewards. At first I was skeptical
in how I could help people with
disabilities. Also, I was worried the
volunteering would be too much to
handle on top of my homework.
But through Between Friends I’ve
matured into a leader, and the kids
I work with have taught me how to
communicate, care, and empathize,
in a way that can’t be learned
elsewhere in life. The activities I do
are a relief and a driving force.
I encourage others to work with
people with disabilities to see
firsthand the smiles you bring to
others and the happiness you get in
return.
- Jesse, Volunteer
My son, Teague, struggles
with several physical and
developmental challenges.
Enrolling him in communitybased recreation programs was
a heart-breaking experience for
us as a family and an incredibly
frustrating experience for
Teague -- he was just not able
to keep up with the other
children physically or mentally.
He struggled to relate to and
make friends with the other kids
and was left out of the positive
social aspects that come from
participating in a group activity.
Then we were introduced to
Between Friends. Hands down,
this has been one of the best
discoveries of the decade for
our family and for Teague.
Summers at Camp Bonaventure
are adventures: days filled with
picnics, rock climbing, sailing,
and swimming. Over the three
summers Teague has been to
camp, we have watched our
non-verbal, withdrawn son greet
fellow campers and counselors
with a smile and sometimes even
a hug! Teague has found a place
where he could belong and feel
a part of hanging out with other
kids.

Treasurer
a message
from our
treasurer
In 2011, revenue increased by $22, 104 or by 1.5% this
is lower than in 2010. Fundraising, program fees and
grants, including both the United Way of Calgary and
Area and foundation and government grants, account
for the majority of our revenues and are the key
sources of support for our programs.
We continued to invest in our staff and to provide
quality programming experiences for our members in
which they had the opportunity to connect, grow and
gain a sense of belonging. Although there was a slight
increase in revenues, expenses increased by $65,968
or by 4.5%.
annual report 2011
The 2011 deficit was funded by drawing against
existing cash and investments.
As fundraising is critical to our operations and our
ability to provide safe, quality programming we will
continue to build upon our community profile and
financial support.

independent
auditors’ report
INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT
To the Members of The Calgary Between Friends Club (a not-for-profit organization)
We have audited the accompanying financial statements of The Calgary Between Friends Club, a not-for-profit organization, which
comprise the statement of financial position as at December 31, 2011 and the statements of operations, changes in net assets and
cash flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.
Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with Canadian
generally accepted accounting principles, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the
preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.
Auditor's Responsibility
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 comply with ethical requirements and plan and
perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The
procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial
statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the
entity's preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the
circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal control. An audit also
includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by
management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified audit opinion.
Basis for Qualified Opinion
In common with many charitable organizations, the Association derives revenue from donations, fundraising and program registrations
the completeness of which is not susceptible of satisfactory audit verification. Accordingly, our verification of these revenues was limited
to the amounts recorded in the records of the Association and we were not able to determine whether any adjustments might be
necessary to contributions, excess of revenues over expenses, current assets and net assets.
Qualified Opinion
In our opinion, except for the effect of adjustments, if any, which we might have determined to be necessary had we been able to satisfy
ourselves concerning the completeness of the contributions referred to in the preceding paragraph, these financial statements present
fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of The Calgary Between Friends Club, a not-for-profit organization, as at December
31, 2011 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian generally accepted
accounting principles.

about us
Between Friends is a charitable organization that creates
opportunities for people with disabilities to connect, grow,
and belong through social and recreational activities.
For over thirty years, Between Friends has been offering
children, youth, and adults a variety of programs that
remove the barriers of isolation and truly function as the
building blocks of friendship.
We run close to two hundred social and recreational
programs designed to meet the needs of over 59 disability
groups. We also encourage inclusive program participation
by offering program spaces for those who do not have a
disability.
We encourage diversity by connecting our community with
their fellow citizens with disabilities, providing ongoing
development and benefitting all people through the
sharing of unique talents and perspectives.
Our I.C.A.N! Programs & Camps (Inclusive Community
Activities with No Barriers) provide equal opportunities
in community recreation. Discovery and social interaction
with typically-developing peers is a key experience.
W.E.S.O.A.R! Programs (Weekend & Evening Social
Opportunities and Recreation) run throughout the year
and include a variety of social and recreational group
activities for all ages.
In the summer months, Camp Bonaventure, Camp
FunzAmust, and Adventurers provide unforgettable
experiences for children, youth, and adults.
Between Friends ensures that every person with a wish
for the thrilling adventure of attending our programs is
granted the opportunity through fee assistance. In 2011,
we provided additional subsidies totalling $38,000 to 75
families.
