GlobalMedic’s financial statements are unaudited but have been reviewed by an accountant. Canada's charities directorate recommends that charities with annual donations over $250,000 have audited financial statements. Global Medic's 2016 statements (attached) restated 2015 figures, correcting errors. Also disclosed in 2016 was a related party loan of $100,000 to Stabilization Support. Global Medic, a separate charity called Global Fire with many of the same directors, and Stabilization Support sent medical and fire equipment to Ukraine.
GlobalMedic is a big-cap charity with total donations and special events fundraising of $6.5m in F2016. Two donors alone gave $6.9 million which is 86% of total revenues. GlobalMedic states that 100% of donors’ money goes directly to its programs and does not report any fundraising and administrative expenses in F2014, F2015 or F2016, except for minimal F2016 fundraising costs of $237. For every dollar donated, 100 cents goes to the cause. This is outside Charity Intelligence's reasonable range. The charity's funding reserves of $2.7m can cover 50% of annual program costs, indicating a funding need.
