Total income: £408,000 for the year ending 31 March 2007, compared with £290,000 the previous year.
Highest salary: No employee earned more than £40,000.
Reserves policy: The charity aims to hold a general fund (undesignated and unrestricted reserves) equivalent to four weeks' running costs, which it regards as a big enough reserve that maximises the revenue available to the charity in meeting its objectives. At year-end, reserves were £25,000 - below the target. But the charity aims to increase its reserves to the target level in the near future.
Fundraising costs: The charity spent £23,000 on fundraising voluntary income, which was £180,000. This equates to a fundraising ratio of 13p in the pound. The previous year the fundraising ratio was 19p in the pound.
Pension: The charity offers a defined-contribution pension scheme.
How performance is communicated: Although it is a relatively small charity, Dhiverse has made an effort to communicate its work and background clearly and effectively on its website. The site also includes information on the charity's partnership working and a description of its funding sources. There is little information, however, on performance issues. This is contained in the trustees' report and accounts, which are not on the site.
The charity says: "Fundraising income continues to be important. We increased our spending on fundraising voluntary income and are developing a five-year fundraising strategy. Fundraising expenditure increased by 61 per cent and fundraised income by 140 per cent compared with the year before. We were pleased with this return, especially given the comparative unpopularity of HIV/Aids as a fundraising cause."
