Where can I learn more about making a nonprofit annual report?
The nonprofit annual report, although not a legal requirement, is often a valuable communications tool for nonprofits to get the message out about their activities over the course of the past year or years. It may also be the only published document that lists and recognizes donors to the organization, as this information is not required in the Form 990, the annual nonprofit information return required by the IRS.
To learn more about nonprofit annual reports, the following resources may be helpful. Keep in mind that if you are looking for real examples, you can do a Google search for "nonprofit annual report".
