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 fdp 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 fap is for a fsl 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.

gsp 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.

SFASwhich 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.

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.
