Revenue & Expenses

A one-time capital gift of $1 million and a large allocation from GWC bolstered total support in 2015. Without the capital gift and in light of a much smaller GWC allocation, total support was 26% higher in 2016. Increases in public program revenue provided a 30% increase in total support & revenue.

2015 REVENUE: $2.25 M

  • Contributions: 66%

  • GWC Support: 22%

  • Programs/Other: 12%

2016 REVENUE: $1.26 M

  • Contributions: 54%

  • GWC Support: 17%

  • Programs/Other: 29%

The 34% increase in revenue from programming incurred only an approximate 10% increase in associated expenditures, and administration costs went down considerably.
