Finances

 

SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) is an award winning 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We were founded in 1996 to serve the needs of children living in the 11 mining and former mining communities that comprise “The Copper Corridor”, an area that spans 100 miles north from Catalina, Arizona. With the closing of most of the copper mines, 25% of Copper Corridor residents have an annual income below the federal poverty level.

We have no paid staff and much of our operating cost for printing, insurance, accounting, etc., is donated or at reduced fees. Our education expenditures include tutoring costs, scholarships, and summer enrichment programs. During our last fiscal year, less than 5% of our revenue went to pay expenses, the remainder of our revenue went to support our various programs. The chart below provides an overview of our expenditures.

Note: The 8% allocated below for “Food Programs” is money set aside for this general purpose by SBCO in it’s annual budget. This is separate and distinct from pass-through programs like the annual Food Drive.


This is how SBCO works to make a difference in the lives of 5,000 kids each year.
