Administrative Expense Calculation


United Way of North Central Massachusetts works diligently to keep its administrative expenses low. To calculate our administrative expenses we use our IRS 990 form for the calculation of the ratio percentage.


For our fiscal year ending June 30, 2017 our administrative expenses were approximately 16.53%. This is also the approximate charge on all designated gifts to cover fund-raising, collecting, processing and distributing costs. The ratio varies slightly annually and is below industry standards.
