Do your audited financial statements and Form 990 tell a consistent story about your organization? Where might they differ and why? Join Moss Adams in partnership with Philanthropy California, and evolve, for this financial literacy program designed to compare some potential differences that may help you understand how to complete these two documents correctly.

This presentation will cover the following topics:

  • Expenses and shared costs
  • Treatment of income and change in net assets
  • Agency and fiscal sponsorship
  • Assets with variance power
  • In-kind contributions


After completing this training, participants will be able to:
