Yellowstone Forever’s 02/2019 audit states that Yellowstone Forever has an “Emphasis of Matter Regarding Going Concern” that is outlined in Note 22. It reads, “Management has identified certain conditions and events that create uncertainty about the ability of the Organization to continue as a going concern. For the years ended February 28, 2019 and 2018, the Organization has sustained losses of $4,001,985 and $1,614,048 respectively.” For this reason, we have issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the FYE 2019 Audit.

The nature of the concerns raised in this organization's Financial Audit are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with information that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites.
