Join us to learn how grantmakers can best use the Form 990 to learn about potential grantees. We will discuss what the 990 tells you and, more importantly, what it does not tell you. Participants will receive a 990 cheat sheet describing the most important sections of the 990 and the questions a grants officer should/could ask about it. 

Our speaker will hold time for Q&A at the end of the presentation. As part of the registration process, please list any questions you’d like addressed and answered about 990s.  

This will be a virtual session; connection details will be provided upon registration.
