How your money is spent

Our income comes from several sources:

• Regular donations through standing orders

• Irregular donations

• Proceeds from fundraising events

• Money we have received after applying to other trusts, usually for some special project or venture.

 

The total income for each category in the last 4 years:

                                          4-year total         Fraction (%)

Donations and collections             £48,890             66%

Fundraising events                       £4,915               7%

Appeals for projects                     £18,967              27%

 

It is spent on:

• Fees and subsistence support for secondary school pupils and for college and university students

• Support for special projects

• Administrative expenses

 

Historically our major expenditure has been payment of fees and maintenance for pupils and students. More recently we have also raised and

distributed funds for special projects. To date there have been two of these, the first being support for refurbishment and improved facilities at the

Musingu Quaker Education Centre, the second being the Greenhouse Project.
