Memorandum To: John H Proctor, MD, MBA, FACEP; Secretary‐Treasurer Robert Heard, CAE, MBA; Executive Director From: Sam Cheng, CPA; CFO Date: August 21, 2014 Subj: June 30, 2014 EMF Financial Statements Significant Budget Variances for the 12 months ended June 30, 2014 Revenue was $95,133 favorable to the budget YTD primarily in these areas:  Donation revenues were $53,087 unfavorable to the budget – this includes the amount EMF refunded ($11,505) to ENA for their portion of an unused grant. The contribution from ENA was received in a prior year; the grantee returned the funds when the grant could not be completed and ENA asked that we return the portion applicable to their prior donation.  Directed Grants are under budget by $92,698, due to less than expected funding.  Donations thru ACEP dues invoice is under budget by $11,630, due to less contributions given during renewal.  Direct Mail donations underperformed projection by $15,313.  Corporate, Practice Group and Foundation donations generated $56,155 more than budgeted.  Special Events at ACEP13 generated $23,707 more than budgeted.  Investment income is over budget YTD $28,107.  The ACEP in‐kind contribution is higher than budgeted by $96,406 for activities related to ACEP13. Expenses were $93,121 favorable to the budget YTD primarily in these areas:  Grants Awarded is under budget $149,125 as fewer grantees were identified than budgeted.  Printing/photocopies exceeded budgeted amounts by $3,431 ‐ primarily due to 40th Anniversary Trailblazers magazine expense of $4,407 that was not budgeted.  Facility & Equipment Rental are over budget $18,401 for activities at ACEP13.  Meal Functions are over budget $6,241 due to having 400 attendees versus an anticipated 250 at the Chihuly event at ACEP 13.  Professional Services and Postage is under budget by $37,265 – primarily due to more projects have been done by staff vs outsourced and more email campaigns were used.  As states look for revenue, we are seeing the fees/state charity & registration line increase dramatically, we are over budget $4,648 ‐ we expect to remain over budget all year.  Investment fees are over budget $6,759 as we have increased the funds under management.  The ACEP contribution of labor is over budget $96,406 – this is offset by revenue.  Member and Staff Travel is under budget by $20,226 – less travel than budgeted. YTD unrealized gain/ (loss) on Regular Portfolio Investment is $173,252. YTD unrealized gain/ (loss) on Endowment Portfolio is $152,859.
