Dividing these net available assets in the most recent year by a charity’s average total expenses, yields the working capital ratio.

Why do charities need to be rated?
Part of our goal in rating the financial performance of charities is to help donors assess the financial capacity and sustainability of a charity.

This ratio is an indicator of an organization’s solvency and or long term sustainability. Dividing a charity’s total liabilities by its total assets yields this percentage.
