Form 990 Made Public:

We check the charity's website to see if it has published its most recently filed IRS Form 990 (a direct link to the charity's 990 on an external site is sufficient). It is important for donors to have easy access to this financial report  to help determine if the organization is managing its financial resources well.

If the charity has not published its latest form 990 on its website, then we deduct 3 points from its Accountability and Transparency score.
