Calculations for Animals Saved for Membership Levels
(aka, Fun with Spreadsheets)

$194,085 expenses for fiscal year 2002-2003

509,000 brochures distributed in fiscal year

2.6 booklets distributed per dollar donated

5 in 200 recipients who stop eating animals per booket distributed (esimate)

9,997,300,000 land animals slaughtered in the U.S. in 2002

283,000,000 people in the U.S.

35 approximate # of animals eaten per person per year

2.3 animals saved per year per dollar donated

116 animals saved per dollar donated, 50 year remaining life

$43 donation to save 5,000 animals

The main unknown, of course, is the number of people who change, and to what extent they change (see this discussion). Also, as Vegan Outreach's budget goes up, the per-piece-distributed cost goes down.
