WHO GETS THE MONEY? addenda – late filings
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, January/February 2000:
The financial data below pertains to animal issue-related charities whose IRS Form 990 filings came too late to abstract in our 10th annual “Who Gets The Money?” charts, published in December 1999.
Each charity is identified by apparent focus: A for advocacy, E for education, S for sheltering.
Charities often declare to the IRS a balance of program vs. fundraising and maintenance expense (overhead) which differs from the balance as it would be stated under National Charities Information Bureau guidelines. The % column states each charity’s overhead costs as declared; the ADJ column states those costs as they would appear if the NCIB guidelines were followed. The NCIB recommends that overhead costs should not be more than 40% of total spending.
For a more complete explanation of how to interpret the data, please refer to our December 1999 “Who Gets The Money?” introduction.
