Finances

New Brunswick Museum is a small-cap charity, with donations of $399k in F2014. The charity does not explicitly report its administrative costs in its audited financial statements. The charity’s fundraising costs are 21% of donations. For every $1 donated to the charity, 79 cents is put towards its programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. The charity’s funding reserves of $2.5m include $1.7m in donor-endowed funds. This results in a program cost coverage ratio, excluding donor-endowed funds, of 26%. This means that the charity can cover 3 months of its annual programs using its existing reserves. The charity does not report the value of its collection in its audited financial statements.

This report is old and we are not seeing much donor interest necessitating an update. If you are a donor and would like to see an update, please contact us at Charity Intelligence.
