POST Financial Overview

Financial Information

A Snapshot of POST Finances

POST spends a very high percentage of our funds directly on our programs.

Financial Program Efficiency, Post spends high percentage of funds directly on protecting lands

Because the transaction cycle in land conservation is long (it can take more than five years to finalize a purchase), we believe a five-year rolling average is the most meaningful view of our financial performance.

If you include the cost of land acquisitions — our most significant fulfillment of our mission — program efficiency was actually 91% over the last five years.

Over the five year period represented graphically, POST also acquired $68 million of land that does not impact our program expense because these were balance sheet-only transactions.
