    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • The charity has received backing from a grant maker recently
    • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
    • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
    • Fundraising costs are unusually low relative to funds raised

    Financial issues to consider:

    • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
    Comment by the Charity:
      The decision to realign our financial year was motivated by several key considerations: Simplification of Financial Controls: Aligning our financial year with the calendar year streamlines accounting processes, making it easier to manage financial controls and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Enhanced Planning and Reporting: This adjustment aids in clearer financial planning and reporting, allowing for a more intuitive alignment with seasonal fundraising activities and grant application cycles. Improved Transparency: By synchronising our financial reporting with the calendar year, we aim to enhance transparency and accessibility of our financial information to our stakeholders, ensuring that our operations remain as open and transparent as possible.
