Fundraising Revenue and Expense Analysis (as per CRA reporting standards)

Total Fundraising Revenue 2022/2023: $17,164

In accordance with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) reporting guidelines, this includes all tax receipted donations as well as revenue generated as a result of direct fundraising activities, for which no receipt was issued.

 

This does not include donations received from other charities/charitable foundations or Government grants. (These additional donations/grants totaled $159,606 (not including our annual operating grant from the Department of Community Services.)

Total Fundraising Expenses 2022/2023: $2,668

This total not only includes all direct fundraising expenses, such as promotion, donor thank you/relations (totaling $1,412), as well as the direct costs of specific events/campaigns (totaling $109), in accordance with CRA's reporting guidelines; it also includes an allocation of the staff wages for time spent on fundraising activities ($1,147).

 

These wages are covered by HomeBridge's general operating budget. None of the fundraised revenue is spent on wages. The allocation of wage costs to our reported fundraising expenses is simply to meet the reporting requirements for CRA's T3010 (Charitable Information Return), which requires a matching of time spent on direct fundraising activities. (This does not include time spent on grant writing or other activities undertaken to secure donations from charities and foundations and government.)

 

Total Expenditures on Charitable Activities/Programming 2022/2023: $7 million

In accordance with CRA guidelines, this total is a sum of HomeBridge's operating expenditures, plus all extra therapeutic programming (funded through our fundraising activities), less expenditures on management, administration and fundraising.
