Project need

Conduct a financial audit of our 2018 tax year (1 Jan - 31 Dec, 2018) financial accounts, and complete an IRS Form 990 long form. Our bookkeeping is straightforward and uncomplicated with limited carryover assets, no investments, and cash-basis accounting. The continuity of completing 3rd party audits and Form 990 Long Forms are an investment in our future growth. We are a small, all-volunteer organization doing big things in Sierra Leone and Kenya. Our long-term strategy is to build a trustworthy reputation of transparency and fiscal responsibility in order to achieve greater recognition in charity watchdog and fundraising circles (specifically, Charity Navigator and the Combined Federal Campaign). We have a professional bookkeeper volunteering with us who uses QuickBooks Online, and our CFO is a CPA. We have had full third-party audits for the past 5 years and last year was our first full Form 990. Additionally, to reduce pressure for the filing deadline, we can apply for a filing extension with the IRS to Aug or Nov 15, 2019.
