Financial Review:

Administrative costs are 6% of total revenues and fundraising costs are 7% of donations. Since the audited financials do not provide a detailed breakdown of administrative costs and fundraising costs, Ci has used the T3010 filing to obtain administrative costs and fundraising costs. The University has funding reserves of $545m (including donor-endowed funds of $210m). Funding reserves cover 77% of annual program costs (48% for non donor-endowed funds).
