How ECF Membership Fees are Spent in Percentages

 

Somebody asked, “What percentage of my membership fee is spent on International Chess?”  That will always be dependent in part on the extent of sponsorship procured, and the present Director does better than most, as far as I can see.  Also, in every season's accounts there are special circumstances relating to diverse figures throughout the various areas of activity.  Nevertheless, the answer would appear to be about

22.4%.

 

ECF income and expenditure is analysed across areas of activity or Directorates.  Most areas normally result in net expenditure (more spent than gathered in directly from entry fees, parental contributions and direct sponsorship, etc.), but “Membership” is of course a major “earner”, though things like setting up new computerised membership systems get charged to “Membership”.

 

Below, I have taken 2017/18 Actual (final) figures, and the 2018/19 12-Month Forecast, as published for the finance meeting, and averaged them to give a better “typical season”.  I have then worked out the percentages each activity or Directorate represents of the total non-Membership spend, which can be seen as the percentages of a membership fee which are spent on those separate activities or Directorates.

 

It will be seen that, excluding Membership, expenditure exceeds income by £200,911.45 in this “average” season.  This is funded mainly from the net income from Membership, i.e. £167,451.15, with a further £33,460.30 coming from reserves.  The figures in the lower block show the percentages of the £200,911.45 spent under each activities or Directorates.
