HackerspaceKL Income and Expenditure Statement – January – September 2010
As part of our initiative as a not-for-profit organization, we will be publishing our income and expenditure statements every month. This is our account as it stands up until the end of September 2010. We are indebted to individuals who have donated money to the space, and also the members that have provided support to keep the space alive. As of the end of September 2010, we are in the red: RM -1540.92. For the past 9 months, we have been collecting an average of RM1775.23 per month, and monthly expenses were RM1946.44 per month. That is RM -171.21 short per month.
Since the space is almost fully equipped (our last major spending was for an airconditioner and projector, and yes, not having Internet broadband service is really a good idea), we would not be spending anymore, and the average monthly expenses should be getting lesser.
Current paying members stand at 11, and this is not enough to cover the monthly rental and expenses. Our electrical and water consumption have been quite low as well. To be really sustainable, the space needs at least RM1500 per month – this provided that we don’t make any major purchases such as another airconditioning unit or Internet broadband services.
