2014 Treasurer's report

The Income Statement is attached below for your reference. The Balance Sheet consists only of assets; our assets at the end of 2014 were the balance of our bank account, $8,678.15, plus Paypal balance, $547.77, for total assets of $9,225.92 as of December 31, 2014.

In general, our 2014 donations were significantly greater than 2013, without a significant increase in expenses; and to date 2015 is ahead of 2014 ($5,265.50 v $3,952.00).

Year end balance: As of December 31, 2014, our bank account balance was $8,678.15 and Paypal balance was $547.77, for a total of $$9,225.92.

Current balance: As of January 10, 2015, we have a bank account balance of $13,606.75 and Paypal balance of $586.55, for a total balance of $14,183.30. There is one outstanding check of $1,364.75 to Farmer's Insurance Brokerage for $1M directors, officers and general liability insurance for 2015. This will be enough to fund our operations this year unless we do something different from past years.

Donations: We received 370 donations in 2014 for a total of $9,227.06, compared to 181 donations in 2013 for a total of $5,435.00,. That is a year-on-year increase of 70% in dollars donated and 104% in number of donors. Average per donation was $24.94/donation in 2014, compared to $30/donation 2013. Below is an interesting pie chart showing the country of origin for our 2014 donations. Thanks to Rustam Tagiew for creating this.

Our January 2015 receipts, which traditionally account for most of the year's income, are also up over the previous year. For Jan 1 to 10, 2015, we have 169 donations, totaling $5,215.50, compared to 124 donations, totaling $3,927.00, for Jan 1 to 10, 2014.

This is a good start on our annual budget but we'll need significantly more to fund the ramped up plans ahead.
