Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been reasonable growth in spending since inception
  • Fundraising costs are unusually low relative to funds raised
  • 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 dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • One or more trustees receive payments or benefits from the charity for providing services to the charity

Financial issues to consider:

  • Unrestricted reserves appear to be dangerously low at the latest year end
