Fiscal Responsibility

Future Generations Graduate School and Future Generations operate as two legally separate organizations:

  • 501(c)(3) non-profit graduate school (EIN 20-4093450)
  • 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN 54-1651305)

Although these organizations have separate operating budgets, they have a common mission and share the same international headquarters and administrative support staff.

Our work is supported through a modest but healthy endowment and generous annual donations from private philanthropists, foundations, and government agencies. Our administrative costs rarely exceed 18% of our annual budget to ensure that funds support real projects and education for real people in critical regions worldwide.

In fiscal year ending June 30, 2010, our support service costs (administrative and fundraising) accounted for 28% of our total expenditures, a consequence of increasing our leadership base, concluding major grants, and securing new funds late in the fiscal year. In 2011, with significant programmatic growth, we are on course to return to a ratio of program activities/support services closer to 83/17, consistent with the average we achieved between 2007 and 2009.
