- Why can’t I find Pets for Patriots on Charity Navigator? Charity Navigator is an excellent organization that evaluates charities that are larger and more mature than ours. According to their published methodology, to be evaluated an organization must file a Form 990 (not a 990 EZ) for a minimum of seven years and have public support of at least $500,000 with total revenue in excess of $1,000,000 in their most recent fiscal year. Pets for Patriots was founded in 2009 and launched in 2010, and does not yet meet these thresholds for Charity Navigator evaluation.
- What is the difference between Form 990 EZ and Form 990? The Internal Revenue Service determines which form an exempt organization must file based upon financial activity (gross receipts and total assets). Pets for Patriots files the appropriate and required document based upon these IRS criteria.
- Where can I see an operating budget? We do not publish forward-looking financial estimates, projections or budgets, nor are required to by law. We use these documents internally for the purposes of organizational and strategic planning only.
