We are funded 100% from private donations and grants, and operated only by volunteers. There are no paid positions. As a new board of directors, we are chartered with a huge responsibility to re-build the Lake Tahoe Humane Society that was on the brink of closing its doors when we took over on April 21, 2018.
After examining many financial documents, processes, and expenditures, we identified key indicators for the next logical steps to maintain financial health of the organization:
- Sale of the building
- Pay off existing debts
- Reduce operating expenses
- Restore a baseline budget that we can allocate to programs; and Re-build services in the community much faster.
As of August 2018, our checking account has ~$31,000. Financial reports for the organization will be published here in October 2018. If you wish to review the organizations 990 tax forms, you may do so on the GuideStar site.
