I agree completely. But when we post everything
we can publicly, have
open meetings, have community committees, and then people don't read it,
well, I don't agree that this is "being cut off".
A list of resolutions which have passed, in most cases without vote
counts or any other information, with pending resolutions not even put
into the view for months, is not "everything you can publicly".
In fact, I asked your CFO over a year ago for a copy of the latest
990, which is by law publically available and the IRS recommends for
it to be posted on the foundation's website. I have received nothing
other than the very first 990-EZ which has finally arrived on the
Guidestar website. You haven't posted everything you can publicly.
Not even close.
Not the CFO fault :-)
Our fiscal year run from june to june. The Foundation was created in
2003, but I am not sure the 990 2003 would make much sense to you. I
never saw it myself, though I was told my name appeared on it.
The 990 of 2004 was only recently sent. It actually contains some errors
which should be fixed soon. Since it is a public document, I suppose we
can put it on Foundation website once fixed? Or add a link if it is
available somewhere on the web ? Will check that.
As for the 990 2005, it is too early for it to exist.
