Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong 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 gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appears to have been slender at the latest year end
  • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
