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.

Robert Gaudet

Rob, a business technology system engineer, first participated in natural disaster relief during tragic flooding in Louisiana in 2016. It was during this time that he noticed how social media empowered everyday citizens to organically and efficiently respond to disasters. Since then, he has been very effectively utilizing social platforms to drive volunteers, resources and donations to the Cajun Navy.
