Audited Financial Statements
IRS Form 990s
We currently have a three-star rating by Charity Navigator, an organization that evaluates charities based on fiscal management, and commitment to accountability and transparency. We continue to receive a score of 100% for accountability and transparency. However, we received a slightly lower financial score for fiscal year 2015–16 due to an increase in our percentage of fundraising costs. This increase was a strategic investment in new avenues of fundraising to position ourselves for future growth.
