Church of Virgin Mary and St. Athanasius is not financially transparent. Financial analysis is based on financial statements provided by the CRA.

Church of Virgin Mary and St. Athanasius had total donations of $6.8m in F2020. Its administrative costs are 8% of revenues, and fundraising costs are less than 1% of donations. This results in total overhead spending of 8%. For every dollar donated, 92 cents go to the cause, which is within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.

CVMSA’s net funding reserves are negative because its interest-bearing debts of $12.5m exceed its liquid assets of $2.1m. The church’s cash and cash equivalents have grown 452% since F2018. CVMSA’s gross funding reserves can cover 91% or almost 11 months of annual program costs when excluding debts. 

In F2020, the charity’s auditors noted a going concern related to the charity’s liquidity, as its working capital was ($5.7m) and it did not have a committed source of available funding. With these issues, the auditors expressed material uncertainty about CVMSA’s ability to continue operating.

Charity Intelligence has sent this update to Church of Virgin Mary and St. Athanasius for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
