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.

Founder, Board Chair & President

Dr. Patrick J. Zook M.D.

Medically trained at Creighton University in Omaha, Pat and his wife, Penny have lived in St. Cloud since 1977. As a family physician there for 40+ years, he has seen and learned a lot from the great relationships he was privileged to enjoy with his family, patients, colleagues and neighbors. These relationships and his own family’s dementia story with both his parents have instilled in him a passion to make sure that our community’s dementia care system provides the best care for our older adults living with dementia and for their families. His brother, sisters and he lived with the gaps in care that still exist today, but our community now has the power and talent to change that kind of story with our Central Minnesota Dementia Community Action Network. With the resounding community support we have felt so far, he is now very optimistic about our prospects for transformation to a better, more hopeful model of community dementia care that we have been working on for the past 3 years.

Medical Director

Chris Tacl

Chris is a semi-retired family physician who grew up in Minnesota. He completed his undergraduate work at St. Thomas, medical school at the University of Minnesota, and residency at St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. For 21 years, he served as president of St. Cloud Medical Group and continues to work part-time with CentraCare. Chris’s interest in dementia stems from his father’s personal battle and the many interactions with patients and families over the past 40+ years. His practice grew to have a large geriatric component providing additional motivation to become involved in providing a vital community resource for those with dementia and their families. He is excited to be part of the team delivering this model of community dementia care. Chris has lived in St. Cloud with his wife, Karen, since 1983.
