Well, It might be a little hard to penetrate and realise what is what in
this huge page, but we do have our accounting public here:


If you have any specific questions, please direct them to me or
User:Prolineserver, our treasurer and Master of CiviCRM.

> Interesting case of a low percentage of common sense.

> estimates for the ratio between admin, fundraising and admin work, even
> if we publish detailed annual reports. Personally, I don't feel we are
> in a strong position to be amused by inadequate reporting by other
> organizations when we are not clear on this ourselves.
> It would be a great improvement to transparency if I could say, even
> roughly, whether
> my own chapter were spending 90%, 80% or 70% of our donated funds and
> grants on planned charitable outcomes, rather than having no figures, and
> having to defend the position of not knowing and finding
> reasons why we would never try to calculate it from the figures
> sitting in our reports. If it turns out that less than 70% of the
> money was being spent on the outcomes defined in our shared mission,
> this might encourage us to look rather carefully at exactly where the
> rest was going, don't you think?
