Inequality affects the charity sector just like any other.
Voluntary organisations with an annual income of over £1m account for 81% of the sector’s total income, but make up only 3% of the total number of charities.
82% of all the charities in the UK have an income of £100,000 / year or less. Yet between them, they only receive 5% of the total income the charity sector receives.
- 3% of charities (the big 'uns) receive 81% of all income.
- 82% of charities (the little 'uns) receive 5% of all income.
We are a small charity, part of that 82%. Last year our annual income was just under £56,000.
We spent less that 2% of that income on marketing and advertising activities, around £788.
This explains why you have only just heard about The Glacier Trust.
