Evangel Hall Mission had $1.7m in total donations and special events revenue in F2020. The charity also received $379k in rent from tenants. Administrative costs are 10% of revenues (excluding investment income), and fundraising costs are 17% of donations. This results in total overhead spending of 27%. For every dollar donated, 73 cents go to the cause, which is within Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range for overhead spending. 

Evangel Hall has ($2.4m) in funding reserves, due to the possession of $4.3m in short-term and long-term debt. Excluding debt, the charity could cover 120% or 14 months of annual program costs with reserves.
