Glenbow Museum is a medium-sized charity with donations of $2m in F2018. The charity also collected $1.2m from admissions and membership as well as $3.6m in government funding. Administrative costs are 17% of revenues and fundraising costs are 44% of donations. For every dollar donated to the charity, $0.39 go to the cause. This is outside Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Glenbow Museum’s funding reserves are $30.6m, which can cover program costs for 5 years. Ci did not exclude endowment funds from this calculation because the audited financial statements do not break out donor-endowed funds from internally-endowed funds.
