Original: The pie charts shows the amount of money that a children’s charity located in the USA spent and received in one year, 2016

Paraphrased: The two pie charts detail the amount of revenue source and expenditure of a children’s charity in the USA in 2016

Overview: In general, it can be obviously seen that donated food contributed as the largest sources of revenue while program service accounted for the majority part of expenditures (spending/outgoings)

In detail, donated food provided most of the revenue for the charity, at 86.6%. Similarly, with regard to expenditures, one category, program services, accounted for nearly all of the outgoings, at 95.8%

The other categories were much smaller. Community contributions, which were the second largest revenue source, brought in 10.4% of overall income, and this was followed by program revenue, at 2.2%. Investment income, government grants, and other income were very small sources of revenue, accounting for only 0.8% combined.

There were only two other expenditure items, fundraising and management and general, contributing 2.6% and 1.6% respectively. The total amount of income was $53.561.580, which was just enough to cover the expenditures of $53.224.896.
