Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • Income generation is well diversified
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • This charity has substantial assets and unrestricted reserves of £16,699,416 available, equivalent to 28 months of spending and so may not be able to utilise additional funding
  • Income has been volatile recently but spending has been maintained
  • Fundraising costs are extremely high relative to funds raised
