Accountability and transparency matter. We invite you to get to know our finances below.
90% of our expenses provide direct care services to children and families. Management accounts for around 7% and fundraising for 3%.
Elk Hill has been operating for over four decades. Our $5.5 million endowment, the Elk Hill Foundation, is designed to make sure we continue long into the future. 5% of its net assets are contributed to our operations annually. We do not have any debt.
We maintain a balance of revenues between Residential, Schools and Community Services programs. Our revenues come from a blend of private donations, local government, and Medicaid. In a volatile social services market, this diversity reduces risk.
Over the last four years, our operating revenue has grown by 66% to over $9 million. Much of this growth comes from rapid expansion in our Community Services and the Charlottesville region. In that same time, our cash position has improved by 60%, mainly thanks to generous support for the Elk Hill 20/20 campaign to raise $7 million in private donations to keep up with this expansion of services.
