What is it you need to learn from a charity's financial statements?
Well, there are really only 2 important questions:
1. Does the charity have sufficient reserves to continue its current charitable works?
Yes, we are financially secure. We ensure that we have enough funds to cover the entire school year before we start a student sponsorship or put a child onto the food programme. When we start a building project, we make sure that we can see it through to completion.
Educated children break the cycle of poverty. We are planning for a brighter future for not just Dekpor's children, but the entire community!
2. For every dollar donated, how much actually goes to charitable activities?
To ask the question a different way, how much gets spent on administrative expenses?
We pay for our year end financials, a legal requirement, and for the website domain -- no salaries, no advertising, no rent, no marketing.
In 2021, Only 0.65% of our revenue was used for admin fees… few charities can make that claim!
