Non-Profits & Transparency….what must they give the public?

For the budding activist, we thought that we would make you aware that even non-profits are supposed to disclose their financial statements (Form 990) that they have filed with the Internal Revenue Service.

Here is a link to the IRS website that gives you all of the details:

Always remember to “follow the money”…..knowing the sources of the non-profit’s revenue stream, and their accumulation of cash will tell you what is motivating them to do what they are doing….

We know it sounds rather cynical, but “the betterment of mankind” is a distinct second reason for many non-profits….

We saw this quote in the local Concord donut shop attributed to the late rock star Jimi Hendrix:

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.”

We would add “the love of power and money” to his quote……
