Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Prior to coming to Reuse Minnesota, Emily was a solid waste specialist for the City of St. Louis Park where she established a series of share and swap events, championed the deconstruction of city-owned properties, and created a directory of reuse businesses. Emily also spent time at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency where she worked on commercial and state agency recycling and composting and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy where she focused on rural communities and local foods.
