2016 – The budget in 2016 was $1.2 million. 73% of this was spent on Programs, 12% on Fundraising and Development efforts, and 15% on Corporate overhead costs. View a copy of our 2016 Report for details on NCOSE’s programs & efforts. See a copy of our 2016 short year 990 here. NCOSE changed its fiscal year to June 30th during 2016, hence the 6 month period indicated in the report. Funds raised are consistent over a 12-month period, however, it looks as though NCOSE lost funding in this report. This is because some of NCOSE’s larger donors gave their annual gifts later in 2016 (at NCOSE’s suggestion) to assist with our CESE Summit and project expenses that we knew would be higher later in the year.
