Chavalos De Aqui Y Alla

EIN: 45-3869531


Chavalos de Aquí y Allá celebrates almost a decade of transnational organizing and local youth development. Current programming includes the teaching of traditional dance and folklore, Central American poetry and professional dance showcases, all of which benefits Chavalos transnational humanitarian aide efforts - making Chavalos one of the most multidimensional and creative Central American nonprofit organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our goal is to bring together Bay Area youth to form a support system for under resourced youth who live in extreme poverty in rural areas of Nicaragua by providing clothes, meals, toys, school supplies, and other necessities . We continue to do this through community outreach, organizing and by promoting Nicaraguan culture.

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.
