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.

Valerie Howard

Valerie's affinity for running traces back to her formative years, when she eagerly participated in youth track meets organized by the Kiwanis Club, even before structured youth running programs were available. Valerie's passion for promoting running extended beyond the local level. She served as President of the esteemed Atlanta Track Club for two years and subsequently assumed a pivotal role as a board member of the Atlanta Youth Running Foundation, now serving as its President. Her professional journey, intertwined with her love for running, saw her transition into a career with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties. Despite her success in real estate, Valerie's innovative problem-solving skills, nurtured through her Information and Computer Science degree and prior ownership of a computer graphics company, continue to shape her multifaceted contributions to both her profession and the running community.
