Does a not for profit have to disclose thier budget? If so where can I find this information?
In which State is the nonprofit incorporated?
The answer is basically Yes."A searchable database of the information returns that charities file annually with the IRS (Forms 990, 990-PF, and 990-EZ) is available on the Attorney General´s website. The database allows donors to research a charity before making a decision to give. A guide to reviewing the 990 is provided on the website at pages 9-14 of the Guide to Charitable Giving for Donors, pdf. The returns available in this database are those filed with the IRS directly, not with the Registry of Charitable Trusts. If you have any questions regarding Registry filings, Contact the Registrar."Fromhttp://oag.ca.gov/charitiesI hope this information is helpful.
