  • Ladies of Charity of Buffalo, NY, Inc.

The affiliated entities share various administrative costs which allow us to maximize program spending.  For the years ended 6/30/17 and 6/30/18, administrative costs for the combined entities were 8.4% and 9.3%, respectively. Fundraising costs are minimized by volunteer efforts and were both 3.4% for the years ended 6/30/17 and 6/30/18.

Although separate Federal Form 990 Information Returns are filed with the Internal Revenue Service for Catholic Charities of Buffalo, NY and Monsignor Carr Institute, Inc., we believe the combined financial statements more accurately reflect the Catholic Charities of Buffalo, NY organization as a whole.
