Financial goals for Cape Fear Christian Academy are made annually based upon revenue from tuition and fees and fundraising to cover the difference needed to create a balanced budget. Based upon feedback from parents and stakeholders, only the most successful fundraisers were kept; however, that means that these fundraisers must be successful to meet our operating budget.
YTD Fundraising Revenue Goal: $38,500
YTD Projected Fundraising Expenses: $ 8,500
YTD Fundraising Profit Goal: $30,000
Actual YTD Fundraising Revenue: $29,951
Actual YTD Fundraising Expenses: $ 2,240
Actual YTD Fundraising Profit: $27,711
