How do you manage any monetary funds/donations received?
28 views and no suggestions. How do you Champions manage the donations and track it as to be transparent.
Great question. From CoderDojo’s annual survey we seen that 31% of Dojos fundraised in 2016.
I’ve heard some Dojos print a simple doc of their income and expenditure each year to share with their Dojo attendees or online to share with the wider community who might be contributing to the Dojo. They can do this in a similar format as our audited accounts if they wish.
It would be really interesting to hear what other Dojos do to manage donations to make sure they are transparent.
@Dan-Harrington141 Hi Dan. CoderDojo Japan used to collect a small amount of money which was logged in a basic Income & Expenditure Google Sheet. They opted to go completely transparent, and had it published on their website (View Only) so anyone could see. They’ve since created a new site and I can’t find it. But @Ross-ONeill can take a look & post here to show you can example.

CoderDojo Alsace in France just released their Annual Report for 2016. Check out page 16 to see a detailed breakdown of their income & expenditure for the year which is publicly available as you can see.
CoderDojo Malahide on the other hand note in their Dojo constitution that “An income and expenditure account for the period to the end of December of each year shall be prepared and presented for approval at the Annual General Meeting after audit by a member appointed at the previous Annual General Meeting”. So anyone interested can attend their AGM to get an update on donations for transparency.
How does your Dojo manage any fundraising done for your Dojo?
Bear in mind in our annual survey 69% of Dojos didn’t fundraise at all in 2016, some Dojos prefer donations in kind, such as refurbished laptops or applying to competitions run by the Foundation.
