With the exception of Schedule B, the Form 990 and its related schedules are open for public disclosure. Thus, organizations have a duty to present not only accurate financial information that reflects their due diligence in maintaining strong governance practices but that they are also meeting other compliance needs.

In this session, we will take a deeper dive into some of the common and complex schedules filed with the Form 990. Join us to discuss how organizations can take ownership to retain acceptable public support levels, meet the compliance requirements for donor acknowledgement, and provide transparency in disclosures to give readers insight into their activities.
