Joint Costs

National Psoriasis Foundation's rating was adjusted for Joint Costs. If you are a donor who considers direct mail, telemarketing, and other Joint Cost solicitations to be true charitable programs, the below efficiency ratios, which were not adjusted for joint costs, may better reflect your goals.

Program % Cost to Raise $100
74% $19
Accounting rules allow charities to report some telemarketing, direct mail, and other solicitation costs as Program expenses. CharityWatch believes that most donors do not consider a charity's solicitation activities to be the Programs they are intending to support with their donations. We therefore adjust such expenses out of a charity's reported Program expense and add it to Fundraising expense prior to calculating its rating.

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 National Psoriasis Foundation audit of June 30, 2021 (Note 2 re: Refundable Advances):

"The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan guaranteed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) is accounted for as a conditional advance and accrues interest at 1%. The advance may be forgiven partially or in its entirety if certain conditions are met, including incurrence of allowable qualifying expenses (mostly personnel and occupancy costs) and acceptance and approval of the forgiveness application by the lender. Upon satisfaction of the conditions, the advance will be recognized as revenue. The Foundation received a PPP loan during the year ended June 30, 2020 and satisfied the conditions during 2021 and $825,046 was recognized as grant revenue. The Foundation received a second PPP loan of $1,030,637 during the year ended June 20, 2021 [sic]. The total amount was forgiven subsequent to year end."

According to the National Psoriasis Foundation audit of June 30, 2021 (Note 15, Concentrations and Credit Risk):

"Investment securities are exposed to various risks such as interest rate, market, and credit risks. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investment securities, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in the values of investment securities will occur in the near term and that such changes could materially affect the amounts reported in the [audited] statement of financial position."

According to the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) tax filing for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021, NPF reports re: Compensation, Supplemental Information (IRS Form 990, Schedule J, Part III):

Regarding: (1) the payment or accrual of any compensation to officers, directors, trustees, key employees and highest compensated employees contingent on the revenues of the organization; (2) the payment or accrual of any compensation to officers, directors, trustees, key employees and highest compensated employees contingent on the net earnings of the organization; and (3) any nonfixed payments to officers, directors, trustees, key employees and highest compensated employees (Schedule J, Part I, lines 5a, 6a, & 7):

"The executive team performance-based bonus portion of the compensation was based on a combination of the employee's performance against their individual objectives (50%), the NPF meeting its annual revenue target (25%) and the NPF meeting its net surplus target (25%). All staff are included in the incentive plan at 1% based on revenue and 1% based on net surplus."

NPF reports "Bonus & incentive compensation" payments to five individuals in calendar year 2020, including $41,715 paid to Randy Beranek, President/CEO, whose reported total compensation in 2020 is $587,406. The other four reported "Bonus & incentive compensation" payments range from $17,163 to $10,000, with associated reported total compensation ranging from $329,342 to $209,488 (IRS Form 990, Schedule J, Part II).
