As an organization, we strive to be open and transparent with all of our work. During each monthly board meeting, which are open to the public, we present monthly financial statements. At the end of our year as we close out our books, we have them reviewed or audited by a 3rd party accounting and audit firm, John E. McGovern & Associates, P.C. Certified Public Accountants. This ensures that our recordkeeping is accurate, and have been prepared with stated GAAP principles. 

Our fiscal year runs from October 1 - September 30.
