Rose Brooks Center’s operating budget runs on a fiscal year, starting July 1st annually, and each year we project an income to expense zero balance. Our operating budget is raised through dozens of grants and events, as well as individual and corporate donations. What many people don’t realize, however, is that any excess funds raised in one year, simply cannot carry over to the next due to nonprofit accounting guidelines. Which means, we start at zero each and every July 1st! This is also why your donation matters so much to us, and the families and pets we serve.
We are at the beginning of our fiscal year and we continue our work to raise operating income through several diverse strategies – all to ensure uninterrupted care for those we serve. And on behalf of those we serve, we say thank you for your donations that help thousands of families and pets, live a life free of violence. Whether it’s by a one-time gift, through a monthly donation in our Life Savers program (see above), attending an event, or a gift of stock or QCD (Qualified Charitable Distribution), your donation goes directly to support our mission! And if you have any Missouri Income Tax liability, there are Missouri Domestic Violence Tax Credits available at a rate of 50%! Learn more about ways to give at rosebrooks.org/how-to-help/donate.
