Form 990

This week we had a accountant,  Mr. Cohner, who deals with taxes come in to discuss various topics related to non-profit organizations’ finances. We discussed the size and complexity of the entirety tax code. We also took an in depth look at the tax Form 990 that each non-profit must make available. It shows how the revenue made by the organization is distributed: either to more fundraising attempts, administrative costs, and actual programs that further their vision. Calculating the ratios of the distribution of their revenues will help us select the right organization. It is also important to recognize that this is a very quantitative measure of an organization. But it is also important to look at each organization from a qualitative organization.
