Income from sale of lessons and books was $3.7m (74% of total revenue) in F2020. Administrative costs are 17% of revenues (excluding investment income), and fundraising costs are 42% of donations.  This results in an overhead spending of 59%. For every dollar donated, $0.41 go to the cause. This is not within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $760k can cover 2.4 months of annual program costs.
