There are many intricacies involved in administering retirement plans. The implementation of sound internal controls is necessitated by the many rules retirement plans are subject to, and by the fact that some of those rules tend to change quite frequently.

Often times what attracts a person to a nonprofit board is a shared interest or passion for the mission of an organization. Of course this is important, as a board position requires an ample amount of volunteer time. However, it is important for board members to not lose sight that they are ultimately tasked with the governance of the organization. A point that should not be taken lightly. The importance of this responsibility is demonstrated by the IRS annual Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax (Form 990) which dedicates an entire section to governance, management and disclosure, and includes a list of all board members.

The goal of this sponsorship program is to create more awareness, donations and volunteer support for the ongoing “Mission Awareness” campaign for the Double H Ranch, which is just one hour north of UHY’s Albany, NY office.
Recent court decisions and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Chief Counsel Memorandum (CCM) reinforce the need to keep accurate records and adequately disclose all charitable contributions as well as gifts made to others.
Consider the fact that potential donors often have only the organization’s audited financials and Form 990 to evaluate the organization’s financial strength and how efficiently it would use a potential donation. Evaluating a nonprofit organization’s financial statements is different than evaluating statements of for-profit entities because having large amounts of revenue over expenses is not the main goal of the nonprofit organization and many organizations are budgeted to have zero excess revenues over expenses.
