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 and a score lower than 100 percent shows that the charity ran a surplus.
