Civil Society Media has launched a new online application allowing charities to compare their long-term income data with the financial performance of other charities.
The tool is based on data taken from the Charity 100 Index and the Charity 250 Index, and covers income results from as far back as 1996 through to the latest available figures.
It enables users to view the results of individual charities, groups of charities and/or the entire data set, create custom graphs and then export them as images or as a pdf file.
Data can be divided into five main streams - voluntary, legacy, grants and fees, investment and trading - and also into groups based on the charities’ aims, such as children’s, international aid or medical research charities.
Both Indexes are long-standing features of Charity Finance magazine; the Charity 100 Index tracks the income of the UK’s largest 100 charities while the Charity 250 Index covers the next-largest 250 charities.
Simply click the 'benchmark' tab at the top of this website to access the tool, or visit http://www.civilsociety.co.uk/benchmark/graph.
