Does your organization produce an annual report? (Please note that by annual report, we are not referring to financial statements or IRS Form 990. Rather, we are asking about an internally produced item that summarizes the charity's programs in the past year, finances and governance.)

The annual report, sometimes called "Summary of Activities," "Report to Donors," or other names is a publication that should not be confused with the charity's financial statements or IRS Form 990. The annual report is often internally produced by the charity and can range form a glossy covered printed document to a simple word processed document that includes basic information about the charity's mission, recent program accomplishments, governance and finances. For many charities the annual report provides a narrative summary of achievements and accomplishments in the past year that is not available in other charity materials that focus solely on finances.
