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.

CEO and Founder

Laurie Wong

Laurie Ann Wong felt a calling in 2000 to respond to the needs of her community in a benevolent, meaningful, and lasting way. Then, no other charitable programs were actively serving her neighbors in Powder Springs, a quiet Cobb County residential area surrounded by communities struggling with poverty. A used clothing drive and subsequent community thrift sales evolved under Laurie’s leadership into Reflections of Trinity, a respected 501©3 nonprofit that is a lifeline to local neighbors and families in crisis from nearly 40 Georgia counties. For over 20 years, Reflections of Trinity has offered compassionate services to support families in dire straits, caught in the harsh cycles of poverty. Reflections’ mission is to meet the basic needs of impoverished individuals in crisis with food, clothing, and daily necessities, and while doing so, offer additional resources and support to improve the future for deserving Georgians.
