* The Campaign for Wellspring Calgary concluded at the end of 2019. An additional $2.24 million of donations have been pledged but not recorded in the financial statements; pledges are expected to be received over the next several years and will be recorded as revenue when received. If included, Wellspring Calgary’s fundraising and administration cost would reduce to 14%.
