TEAM 222 Clean Up Events

South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition conducts regular creek cleanup events on the Los Gatos Creek, Guadalupe River, and on the Coyote Creek. These cleanups are generally organized under our TEAM 222 Program. All we ask of you is two hours of your time (2), on the second Saturday (2) of every other month (2) = TEAM 222. Join TEAM 222 for one cleanup or for many cleanups. If you can spare two hours on a Saturday morning, please join us and you’ll be amazed what can be accomplished in such a short period of time.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

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.
