Supplementary notes
To calculate donor dependency rates the annual budget surplus/deficit was subtracted from the total amount in gifts and then divided by the amount received in gifts. The higher the score, the more a charity was dependent on donor contributions. A score of 100 percent would signify that the charity had broken even in its budget.
*Only the 100 largest charities have been included.
