Annual Report

From Guidelines & Principles
Jump to: navigation, search

In serving the public trust, a nonprofit should produce an annual report that contains information regarding activities and performance, including:

  1. an explanation of the organization’s mission, activities, and results,
  2. an explanation of how individuals can access programs/services,
  3. financial information, including income and expense statements, balance sheet, and functional expense allocations, and
  4. a list of board members, management staff, partners/supports, and donors.

A well-written annual report will help you demonstrate your accomplishments to current and future donors, cultivate new partnerships, and recognize important people.
