Here we have broken out the expenses that do and don’t directly impact our students. While our marketing costs are almost nothing, we have allocated some of the director’s (Drew) salary to reflect the cost of communicating with donors and showing the results of our work (Fundraising & Communications). The costs of managing our staff (mostly teachers), renting an office and related expenses are also shown (Administration).

We feel this information is a part of our responsibility to be transparent and accountable. While the numbers tell part of the story, another important aspect is how we operate and manage people. EYC prides itself on being an organization where changes can be implemented fast, bureaucracy is minimal, meetings are brief and purposeful, etc. We acknowledge we have lots of room for growth, keep our minds open and embrace change. This is how we make the most use of your donations!
