An audit of the Meso Foundation’s 2013 financial statements confirmed an increase of program expenditures to 86% of the Foundation’s budget. Consequently, the amount spent on management and fundraising has decreased to 5% and 9%, respectively.
“We are very proud of this result. When compared to other excellent charities, we spend at least 11% more than they do on programs,” said Melinda Kotzian, the chief executive officer of the Meso Foundation. “Most importantly, this number shows our donors our dedication to the development of life-saving treatments and services for our mesothelioma-affected community.”
The Meso Foundation is the only mesothelioma-related charity to hold a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator and the only mesothelioma charity accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
The complete set of audited 2013 financials will be available on the Meso Foundation’s website in the “About Us” section under “990 Forms and Audits.”
