The numbers: Latitude Global Volunteering

The finances of the gap-year volunteering charity

- £1.89m: The charity's income for the year ending 31 March 2008. The previous year's income was roughly the same

- 92%: The proportion of money the charity raised from charitable activities, mainly placement fees. The rest of the money came from voluntary income and bank interest

- £60k: No employee was paid more than this

- £119k: Free reserves at year-end. This was well below the charity's target of three months' operating costs - about £520,000

- £1.69m: The amount raised in placement fees. About £120,000 was raised in voluntary income, giving the charity a fundraising ratio of 56p in the pound, compared with 46p in the pound the previous year

- £183k: The net deficit for the year, compared with a small surplus the year before. This resulted from a failure to meet revenue targets and a rise in costs, including the cost of a rebrand

- 4%: The proportion of pensionable salary the charity contributes to employee pensions
