The 2012 Annual Report presents Perkins’ revenue used to cover operating and program expenses for FY2012. Perkins saw a decrease in non-operating net assets of ($14,233,631), which includes restricted gifts and legacies, restricted and unrestricted investment income and restricted and unrestricted realized gains and unrealized losses. Most of this decrease was due to net assets released from restrictions for operations, and capital.
