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.

Executive Director

Katie Stern

For nearly 20 years, Katie has helped construction firms grow through marketing and rebranding strategies. After the sudden death of her son Toby in 2016, at 12 weeks old, and struggling to find resources to process their own grief, Katie and her husband, Dan, started The Little Fox – Toby’s Foundation with a mission of providing resources and support to parents experiencing grief from the death of a child, while educating on the importance of safe sleep practices for infants and bringing awareness to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Katie has written for Still Standing Magazine, City Moms Blog, Stories from the Trenches and continues to blog through Toby’s Foundation (and her own social media pages) on motherhood, grief, death, and growth. She has talked about her family’s story and Toby’s legacy on the podcasts, Yet We Thrive, Confessions of a Grieving Mother, Death Space, and Life After Miscarriage. In 2022, The Little Fox –Toby’s Foundation was chosen for the Building Bridges
