Note: JUMP Math had deferred contributions of $372k in F2022, ($29k) in F2021 and ($3k) in F2020. Ci could not break out changes in government vs. non-government deferred contributions and therefore could not adjust for deferred donations. Ci reported publication sales, training, licensing fees, and royalty revenues in fees for services. Ci reported deferred licensing fee revenues, affecting revenues by $1.8m in F2022. Ci reported program, administrative, and fundraising costs from the charity’s T3010 CRA filings and backed out amortization on a pro-rata basis. In the charity's audited financial statements, government funding is recognized as an expense recovery.

This also affected expenses by $162k in F2022 and $596k in F2021.

The 42% Overhead represents 23% Admin + 19% Fundraising. JUMP Math is a five-star rated charity and education publisher.

The pandemic had an impact on fundraising revenues. The duration of JUMP Math's major gifts cycle expands beyond one year and JUMP Math expects to see more revenue to support its mission. JUMP Math expects to see some years are higher than others but in the long term, donations are steady.
