Efficient fund-raising strategies. The cost of raising every $100 was about $3 and the total fund-raising expense was only 3% of total expenditure. The charity was founded in Aug 2008. With the new office set up cost, project expense had a relatively low proportion to total expenditure. The administrative costs and staff salaries were high. It may take time to run smoothly and lower the administrative cost so as to improve operational efficiency. We suggest to expand the services and the administrative costs will take a relatively low portion of total expenditure. We recommend the charity to have a tighten financial management and keep some reserve. In addition, it would be nice to have website as a communication channel with the public.
