We’re committed to being both transparent and accountable regarding the resources we receive and use. We strive to go the extra mile, and share more information that required of 501(c)(3) nonprofits.

As a Guidestar Silver participant, we proactively share more that the required financial and operational detail

We received the maximum possible five-star rating in Transparify’s 2016 report, reflecting our exemplary transparency when it comes to publicly disclosing our sources of funding. This scoring is based on the fact that on our website we disclose who funds us, in what amount, and for what particular projects

We strive to set an example in organizational transparency and accountability. As a part of that, we publicly share our budget projections along with quarterly actual expenditure updates.

Our final audited statements and 990 tax returns are also available (link to disclosures subpage)
