FSP 117-1 PDF

The guidance is intended to improve the quality and consistency of financial reporting of endowments held by not-for-profit organizations. Moreover, organizations across the country now find themselves subject to increased public scrutiny on how they manage and use their endowments, which in many instances have seen tremendous growth over the past decade. This FSP provides guidance on classifying the net assets equity associated with donor-restricted endowment funds held by organizations that are subject to an enacted version of UPMIFA, which serves as a model act for states to modernize their laws governing donor-restricted endowment funds. Approximately 20 states have already done so, and many more are expected to do so over the next few years. This FSP also requires additional disclosures about endowments both donor-restricted funds and board-designated funds for all organizations, including those that are not yet subject to an enacted version of UPMIFA. The provisions of this FSP are effective for fiscal years ending after December 15,

The FSP also modifies the disclosures about an organization's endowment funds both donor-restricted endowment funds and board-designated endowment funds , whether or not the organization is subject to UPMIFA.

The classification rules in the FSP apply to any not-for-profit organization that maintains a donor-restricted endowment fund. This includes permanently restricted funds that are not specifically identified as endowments. In addition, the FSP disclosures are applicable to organizations that maintain quasi-endowment funds, including funds that are board-designated or otherwise internally identified as endowments. UPMIFA prescribes new guidelines for expenditures of a donor-restricted endowment fund in the absence of overriding, explicit donor stipulations in a more robust set of guidelines about what constitutes prudent spending, explicitly requiring consideration of the duration and preservation of the fund.

Among its changes, UPMIFA prescribes new guidelines for expenditure of a donor-restricted endowment fund in the absence of overriding, explicit donor stipulations. UPMIFA instead focuses on the entirety of a donor-restricted endowment fund, that is, the original gift amount s , earned income interest and dividends , and net appreciation. UPMIFA eliminates UMIFA's historic-dollar-value threshold, 4 an amount below which an organization could not spend from the fund, in favor of a more robust set of guidelines about what constitutes prudent spending, explicitly requiring consideration of the duration and preservation of the fund.

Questions have arisen about whether UPMIFA's shift in focus affects the net asset classification of a donor-restricted endowment fund. FAS to provide guidance. This pronouncement the FSP is effective for years ending after December 15, Generally there is no difference in the accounting for the permanently restricted portion of the endowment fund.

ASV: I find this sentence to be very awkward and somewhat confusing. I would reword it. The FSP does change the accounting for temporarily restricted net assets. Under previous guidance, if an expense was incurred for a purpose for which both unrestricted and temporarily restricted net assets were available, the donor-imposed restriction was considered fulfilled to the extent of the expense incurred.

Under the new FSP, any portion of the endowment fund that is not classified as permanently restricted net assets is classified as temporarily restricted net assets time restricted until "appropriated for expenditure" by the organization.

In the absence of interpretation by legal or regulatory authorities, "appropriation for expenditure" is deemed to occur upon approval for expenditure, unless approval is for a future period, in which case appropriation is deemed to occur when that period is reached.

However, the funds would still not be released from restrictions until the purpose restriction if any is also met. Both the purpose restriction and the time restriction have to be met before the funds are released. Also, the organization cannot accumulate a deficit in these temporarily restricted balances. If no unspent income has been earned in the current year or accumulated from prior years, any amounts appropriated for expenditure come from unrestricted net assets.

Questions have arisen about just what qualifies as an "appropriation" for this purpose. For example, does the approval of an annual budget--including a line item for income from endowment--constitute an appropriation of that amount?

FASB does not say specifically, but this author believes it does. If in prior years amounts have been reported as released from restrictions under paragraph that were not actually intended to be an expenditure of endowment earnings, such as expenditures in excess of the approved spending policy, a prior period adjustment will be required.

This reclassification should be reported in a separate line item within the organization's statement of activities, outside a performance indicator or other intermediate measure of operations. If the organization initially applies the provisions of the FSP subsequent to the period in which UPMIFA is first effective, the reclassification shall be reported in those financial statements in the earliest comparative period presented for which UPMIFA was effective. SFAS , which governs accounting for investments held by non-profit organizations, has not been modified and thus permanently restricted net assets are not reduced by losses on the investments in the fund, except to the extent required by the donor.

If the donor requests the institution to hold specific investments, any losses on those investments would reduce the permanently restricted net assets. Absent donor stipulations, losses on investments of a donor-restricted endowment fund shall reduce temporarily restricted net assets that may exist such as unexpended net appreciation and then any remaining loss shall reduce unrestricted net assets. A not-for-profit organization, whether or not it is subject to an enacted version of UPMIFA, shall disclose information to enable users of financial statements to understand the net asset classification, net asset composition, changes in net asset composition, spending policy ies , and related investment policy ies of its endowment funds both donor-restricted and board-designated.

At a minimum, an organization shall disclose the following information for each period for which the organization presents financial statements:. In accordance with the requirements of Statements and , an organization also shall provide information about the net assets of its endowment funds, including:.

Questions have also arisen as to just what is considered an "endowment" for this purpose. For example, should a third-party trust held for the benefit of, but not managed by, the organization be included in the endowment?

Or a remainder trust where the organization is the trustee? How about a pledge receivable, which upon collection will be added to the endowment per donor stipulation? Thus this author believes that assets under the organization's control such as the remainder trust should be included, but the third-party trust and the pledge probably not.

However if the organization wishes to include all "endowment-type" assets in its disclosures, there would be no objection; in this case assets not under management control should be disclosed separately from assets under control.
