ORCA Annual Report 2008-2009
In 2008, ORCA generated revenues from a balanced array of government agencies, private foundations and individuals. This healthy diversity of support enabled us to close our 2008 fiscal year with an operating surplus. As with most companies—commercial and nonprofit alike—the global economic downturn of 2009 presented significant challenges. Multi-billion-dollar shortfalls in Florida's state budget left little room for the state's environmental agencies to continue their support of our Kilroy program. However, ORCA's growing group of individual and foundation supporters rose to the challenge, almost entirely overcoming shortfalls in government funding targets.
