Financial Review:

Fundraising costs are 5% of donations and administrative costs are 27% of revenue. The charity has funding reserves of $149k (including $11k of donor-endowed funds), which cover 30% of annual program costs. The YMCA had significant capital expenditures of $1.1m in F2011, due primarily to purchase of facilities. The auditors have indicated that the charity’s circumstances (operating losses and a negative operating fund in recent years) cast significant doubt upon the organization’s ability to continue as a going concern.
