CharityWatch Analysts perform an in-depth analysis of charities' audited financial statements and IRS tax filings, and often review other documents such as state filings, annual reports, and fundraising contracts during their evaluations. Below are select notes that CharityWatch believes may be of interest to donors.

According to the EngenderHealth (EH) tax filing for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2022, EH reports re: Compensation, Supplemental Information (IRS Form 990, Schedule J, Part III):

Regarding severance payments to officers, directors, trustees, key employees and highest compensated employees (Schedule J, Part I, Line 4a):

"Caleb Tiller, Former VP of Communications & Marketing, received a severance payment of $13,010 which was included in his taxable compensation."

Regarding non-fixed payments to officers, directors, trustees, key employees and highest compensated employees (Schedule J, Part I, Line 7):

"The organization paid discretionary bonus compensation based on individual performance and within the approved budget of the organization. The bonus amounts were determined and approved by the Board of Directors and were included in the individuals' taxable compensation."

EH reports providing "bonus & incentive compensation" during 2021 to five individuals. Traci L. Baird, President & CEO, received $93,750 of bonus and incentive compensation, with a total reported compensation of $507,578. The remaining four individuals received $1,000 to $18,113 with total compensation ranging from $195,147 to $310,655. 

According to the EngenderHealth (EH) audit of June 30, 2022 (Note 13, Significant Funders):

"Total contributions and private grants revenue received from three donors aggregated to 56% during 2022. Total contributions and private grants revenue received from four donors aggregated to 72% during 2021. Contributions receivable from one donor aggregated to 99% at June 30, 2021. 

During the years ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, 68% and 76%, respectively, of operating revenues and other support were received from the U.S. government, either directly or through pass-through agencies. In 2022 and 2021, 65% and 46%, respectively, of such amounts were received from USAID. The operations of EngenderHealth's programs at present levels are dependent upon continued funding from the U.S. government, primarily USAID."

According to the EngenderHealth (EH) audit of June 30, 2022 (Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, In-kind Donations):

EH received donated contributions and services during the fiscal year-ended June 30, 2022, on which it placed a total value of $204,235. Of this amount, $88,448, $98,027, and $17,760 was attributed to "Legal services," "Coaching services," and "Rent," respectively. 

[Note: CharityWatch generally excludes the value of in-kind (non-cash) donations of goods and services from its calculations of Program % and Cost to Raise $100. More information on how grades are calculated and the treatment of in-kind donations can be found on the Our Process page.]
